A number of tatters have asked for the pattern when I posted my progress on my FB page.
The pattern for the doily is from the Land of Laces blog. It was published bt the blog author in several parts. You may have to scroll down several pages to get the pattern since it was published a while back.
The thread that I used for my doily is DMC perle cotton no.12. Not really a fan of perle for tatting but I had to try it at least once to find out how it feels. Well, still not a fan. The thread fuzzes up easily, understandable since it is loose twist 2-ply. The picots splits, which made it harder to join, especially if the picots are small. May not consider using it again for future projects.
