Lavender Doily 2 Complete (LHO 10)

This is done. The last round seems a little short and looks pulled. It reminds me of a dinner plate because of the colour change. Picotsnkeys asked if I was going to do another colour change - but I did not. Kathy, the centre is not difficult as long as you have a picot gauge.

Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 in Col. 641 Lilac dark and Col. 646 Purple iris light. The pattern is from page 71 of Lee Hye-oon's book Lovely Tatting Doilies for Spring and Summer.

Now I can concentrate on tatting Renulek's WIOSNA 2018.


  1. Beautiful. I think it must’ve been tricky to tat, you did a good job.

  2. Goodness, that's absolutely lovely! Weird about that outer ring being so tight, still lovely though.

  3. Your doily is beautiful, I do believe that people have different tension when tatting and then writing up directions.

  4. By closely looking at your work, I found that the very small picots(-) you made throughout the work seem a little bigger than mine. The accumulated length seemed to make the last round short and pulled. However, your overall work is so good and I appreciate your tatting many of my patterns and sharing them with your community.

    Thank you,


  5. It really does look like a lovely dinner plate. I really wouldn't have noticed the tightness of the outer round. A beautiful rendition of Hye-oon Lee's design. I admit I have never used a picot gauge!

  6. Thank you all for your lovely comments. I agree with Hye-oon's observations. If my picots were smaller, the design would look more pronounced and the circumference would be smaller. Do try this pattern. It was so rewarding to tat.
