16-Spoke Doily

16-Spoke Doily
By Pammy Sue



Note: Keep in mind that the size of your hook and/or yarn may make a difference in how your doily looks and whether it ruffles or not, etc.  You may need to adjust your ch stitches between stitches if you use a different yarn or hook size than suggested.)

I used white cotton yarn (Color A) and peach baby-weight yarn (Color B).  Mine came out to 16 inches across using these yarns.  It’s probably best to use two of the same kind of yarn though because it was a little weird with them being different sizes.  I’d recommend using all baby-weight or all thread.

Size E crochet hook or appropriate size for yarn or thread used

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.
