I like to do complicated, detailed crochet designs.
This is one of those - a doily that is 16 inches in diameter - from point to point.
The pattern came off the Internet - According to that listing, it is from a book "Priscilla Doilies Book No. 111" -- a design by the well-known designer, Priscilla, who I really admire.
As usual, I did it my way - in Lavender and Dark Purple with Lavender beads on the edge.
Here are some closeups, first of the center and, second, of the outer section.
On the picture just above, if you look close, you can see the Lavender glass seed beads on the edge.
This is done in a fine thread that is considered heirloom weight -- Lavender DMC Cebelia size 30 cotton crochet thread.
The thread in Dark Purple is a shaded color -- DMC Pearl Cotton size 8.
These threads are high quality cotton threads that are wonderful to work with and make beautiful items!!
This is listed in my shop: --
