Linda's Classic Doily - Completed
As I made mistakes in the tatting of the rings after the first set of scallops, it is puckering a little and the shape of the scallops are not distinct. I am learning from the mistake and will tat another doily. This measures about 13.5 inches across and tatted in Size 40 threads.
Many of you commented that the colour is very pleasing. I must admit that blue isn't my favourite colour but it is a favourite of many.
I was first attracted to this pattern when I saw it on Linda's blog. It reminded me of a mandala although it isn't obvious in this rendition. See hers here.
I also love the look of the doily if it ended after the first set of scallops. If the pattern gets too overwhelming, it would be a good option to end it there.
