Yellow-gold doily

This is how the yellow-gold doily is finished.
There are 12 rounds in the doily and the full doily measures about 7 inches diameter.  The ends still need hiding.  I did not measure the amount thread used up, but I think it is about six shuttles-full working with two shuttle.

As with the raspberry pink doily, I utilised split rings to go up to the next round up to the 11th round and any tails at the point of adding new thread were tatted over.  I did not plan the final round properly, so had to cut the thread after the 11th round and start over for the 12th round.

  1. I sympathize!

    I had to cut off a row of the honey napkin at the 13th row - I didn’t like it with beads but had tatted a lot of it before I came to that conclusion... Hard to make that first snip!
