16-Spoke Doily Repost

[clip_image002[4].jpg]

I’m reposting this pattern from August 10, 2010.  This includes the corrections found by a couple of readers who have used this pattern and made suggestions.  However, please keep in mind that, as with every pattern, if you use a different size hook and/or yarn, or if you just crochet looser or tighter than I do, you may need to make adjustments if your work starts to ruffle or curl where it’s not supposed to.  You also need to block it when you’re finished to get the desired effect.  I wrote this pattern after seeing a similar doily on Flickr that did not include a pattern.  I have made the same corrections to the post back on August 10, 2010.

I used white cotton worsted yarn (Color A) and peach baby-weight yarn (Color B).  Mine came out to 16 inches across using these yarns.  I’d recommend using all baby-weight or all thread as it was kind of weird using two yarns of different weights.


Size E crochet hook or appropriate size for yarn or thread
Dtr = yo three times, insert hook into sp indicated, yo and pull up a loop (5 loops on hook), (yo, pull through 2 loops) four times.

**********************************

With Color A:
Start with a
magic circle (or you can Ch 6 and join with a sl st to form a ring)
Round 1: Ch 3, 15 dc in ring (total of 16 dc); join with a sl st.
Round 2: Ch 3, dc in same st, 2 dc in each dc around (total of 32 dc); join with a sl st.
Round 3: Ch 5, (skip next dc, dc in next dc, ch 2) around; join with a sl st to third ch of beginning ch-5.
Round 4: Ch 5, dc in same st, (skip a space, dc in next stitch, ch 2, dc in same stitch) around; join with a sl st to third ch of beginning ch-5. Fasten off.
Round 5: Join Color B with a sl st into any ch-2 space from previous round. Ch 3, make 2 dc in same space (first “spoke” made), ch 2, (3 dc in next ch-2 space from previous round, ch 2) around; join with a sl st to top of first ch-3. (16 spokes made)
Round 6: Ch 3, 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next, ch 2, (dc in next 2dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 2) around; join with a sl st to top of first ch-3.
Round 7: Ch 3, dc in next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 2, (dc in each of next three dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 2) around; join with a sl st top top of first ch-3).
Round 8-11: Continue in same manner, adding one dc to each “spoke” and always ending the spoke with 2 dc in last dc. Fasten off.
Round 12: Join Color A with a sl st to any beginning dc of a spoke. Ch 3, dc in each of next 4 dc, ch 3, dc in each of next 4 dc, 2 dc in last dc, ch 1, (dc in each of next 4 dc, ch 3, dc in each of next 3 dc, 2 dc in last dc, ch 1) around; join with a sl st to top of beginning ch-3. Fasten off.
Round 13: Join Color B with a sl st to any ch-1 sp, ch 1, sc in same sp, ch 1, [(dtr in ch-3 sp of previous round, ch 1) 7 times, sc in ch-1 sp] around, ending with a sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Round 14: Join Color A with an sc to any ch-1 sp, ch 3, (sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 3) around, ending with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.

  2. What great timing! After Christmas, a wee bit of rearranging was in order for my room. In the course of fooling around with all that, I decided I wanted a doily for one particular spot, to place under a new picture stand/easel-type thing.. WHATEVER it is, that my picture frame can set on! (0; I think I'll give this pattern a try, and I'll let you know how it comes out when I'm done... Wishing you a very Happy New Year, and thanks for sharing your pattern! ~teener
