First Book of Modern Lace Knitting by Marianne Kinzel. I chose this specific pattern not only because I like the design, but also because it seamed like an easy enough pattern for a first attempt at this type of project. I must say that I found it to be no more difficult than other lace knitting I have done so far, or maybe even a bit easier, since instead of purling every other row (which for me is usually a slower process), I knit every other round. I also like the crocheted edging. It looks relatively interesting, it is easy to execute and does not tighten up the outer edge like a traditional cast off can. I definitely recommend this pattern to anyone who wants to try knitting a round doily or a small tablecloth. This one turned out to be 24" in diameter. In terms of yarn, I used a green, roughly size 10 crochet cotton, and worked on size US 0 (2mm) needles. You can see the real colour of the thread in the photo of the crumpled, unblocked doily. Speaking of blocking... I could have done a better job, but, oh well... next time. Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful day.
