Joy's Split Chain Doily

Joy, from Australia, sent me this photograph of the Split Chain doily that she has completed.
Didn't she do well!

Oval Doily in ecru from 2012

I had a request from Alley Cat asking if I had the PDF pattern for the Oval Doily I blogged about in January 2012
I had completely forgotten about posting the finished article so here it is in all its glory.
I have put the link to the pattern in my Free Pattern section.

Knitting squares

I was given a pattern for knitting squares directly onto one another so doing away with having to sew them together. I used just left over double knitting wool I happened to have in my stash, hence the odd arrangement of colours. The pattern worked very well and I was pleased with the end result. My hubby has claimed it as his "wuss" blanket for when he needs a "horizontal"

When I was making the above blanket I thought the pattern would lend itself well to two colours and tweaked it a bit to achieve the effect I was looking for. This is going to be a cushion cover but I thought I would do the back differently so that I can chop and change sides whenever I feel like it. You can see how far I have got on the bottom picture.
