Coquille

No excuses for being silent for so long. Sorry.

Well, the last post was about my trip to Japan.  Since then, I have been to Norway, Sweden and Finland spending a good two weeks savoring the breath-taking views of the fjords, glaciers and  learning the histories of the respective countries. Tavelled by bus, train, plane and took the cruise ship across the Baltic Sea, where I had a wonderful view of the sunrise.

But, this post is not about the trip.

August is a special month for me and I want to share it with all my readers and followers.

This doily was designed in 2014 and I was keeping it for a good time to share it, .... and it slipped my mind until now.  I wrote a post about this doily asking for suggestion to name it. Kathy Nicklewicz suggested the name "Coquille". It is short and simple, which I like very much, hence the name. Thank you Kathy.


And the good news is I am sharing this pattern for free.
You can download this from Google drive through this link,
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bz--YEf52NIRTkEwblhIbnBZTmM/view?usp=sharing

Please, please, this is a free pattern.
You do not have to pay for it. 
There have been many posts about certain people taking free patterns and selling them.  I don't know which is worse, selling free patterns or sharing copyrighted patterns for free. Feels like it is stealing either way.

oops .. sorry ... venting a bit ....

Anyway,  you can sell anything that you make from this pattern, if you wish.

This is my first time sharing anything through Google Drive, so they may be hiccups along the way. If so, Please let me know and I will make corrections if I can. When it comes to computers,, I am not really tech-savvy, actually.

Enjoy!

  26. I just came across this post, and I was quite amazed that I suggested the name for your beautiful doily, as I didn't recall doing that! I had to go to the original post from 2014 to refresh my memory. Then it came back to me that I had looked up the French word for 'scallops' (which describes the lovely final round); and I discovered that in the world of cuisine, scallops are often served in a real oyster shell or shell-shaped dish, and the word coquille is more a description of the 'shell', which also 'fits'! In the lace world it is a term used by bobbin lacers for 'shell' patterns, and is frequently used in crochet.

    It's so generous of you to share this beautiful pattern! It came right up on my computer and is an excellent diagram. I very much look forward to tatting it!

    You've certainly been 'on the move' with your travel adventures! I'm a bit envious!
