Next Stage of Doily

After completing the round with the scallops it made a very pretty doily and anyone wanting this size of doily, 7" in diameter, could stop there, but I want to carry on as I have never designed a large doily before.
I tried with the repeat of the round of split rings and it works in perfectly and if my sums add up correctly when I have completed another 4 rounds after this one I should end up with a last row of 18 scallops and the whole thing should measure approximately 12" in diameter. Fingers crossed!

Linda, The doily is looking really good, I cannot wait to see the finished product. Please feel free to ask if you need a test tatter as you know of my love for doilies.

It'll be really interesting to see how it turns out. It looks like you're having fun designing it. I like that particular ecru color, the ecru I have from DMC is more of a creamy, yours looks more eggshell. I like it.

Clyde, I had been toying with the idea of asking you to test tat this as I know doilies are your it was lovely to receive your message! When the doily is complete I will make a PDF of it so that I can sent it to you.
