Classic Doily WIP

When I saw this doily at Tattyhead's blog, I said I have to tat this, in between the pineapple heaven doily. This is Linda Davis' pattern and you can find it on her blog. Thank you so much, Linda.

At the moment, this isn't done yet. Another WIP. I just finished Round 8 (7.5 inches across) and there are 8 more rounds to tat. This is tatted in Venus Size 40 threads in #365. I have already used up 50 meters of thread. No wonder the pattern required a full ball (25g) of thread. However this ball that I have is only 20g. I hope it is enough. Link here to see Linda's classic doily in its full glory.


  1. very pretty, and so classy. your tatted chains are so even in size.

  2. Looking good so far, hopefully you will enough, keeping my fingers crossed for you

  3. How can you tat so darned fast? It is beyond me. Such complicated patterns and you just whip along at breakneck speed.

    I am still stuck at the Coronet Doily - the SMALL one - that I have begin 4 times!

    This one you have displayed is very, very pretty. Love the colour as well.
    Fox : )

  4. Linda's doilies are so lovely, can't wait to see your finished version!

  5. Looking gorgeous!! Love all the beautiful doilies you have been tatting!!! :)

  6. You've sure been busy!!! I thought this was finished!

    Linda's pattern is breathtaking! But I'm afraid I'll have to admire it from afar. This is beyond my 'patience' level! The design reminds me of those spiral drawings that mezmerize!
