Doily Center
Starting at center; ch 9, join with a sl st.

Rnd 1) 16 sc in ring, sl st in 1st sc made.

Rnd 2) Sc in same place as sl st, * ch 5, skip 1 sc, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5.

Rnd 3) * Sc in next sc, 2 sc in ch 5 sp, ch 4. Repeat from * around.

Rnds 4-15) * Skip 1st sc, sc in each remaining sc of sc group, 2 sc in ch 4 space, ch 4. Repeat from * around. (15 sc in each sc group on last rnd).

Rnd 16) Ch 4, * skip 1 sc, sc in next 13 sc, ch 4, sc in ch 4 sp, ch 4. Repeat from * around.

Rnd 17) Ch 5, * skip 1 sc, sc in next 11 sc; (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 5. Repeat from * around. Continue in this manner, having 2 sc less in each sc group and 1 loop more between sc groups on each rnd, until 1 sc remains in each sc group, and ending with ch 5, sc in loop preceding 1st sc. Now work as follows:

Rnd 1) * Ch 2, sc in next loop; (ch 5, sc in next loop) 7 times. Repeat from * around, ending with sc in loop preceding 1st ch 2.

Rnd 2) * Ch 5, skip ch 2 loop, sc in next loop; (ch 5, sc in next loop) 6 times. Repeat from * around.

Rnd 3) * Ch 5, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around.

Rnd 4) * Ch 5, 6 dc in next loop; (ch 5, sc in next loop) 5 times. Repeat from * around, ending with sc in loop preceding 1st dc group.

Rnd 5) * Ch 5, sc between 3rd and 4th dc of dc group; (ch 5, sc in next loop) 6 times. Repeat from * around.

Rnd 6) * ch 7, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Fasten off.

First Rosette:
Ch 10, join.

Rnd 1) 24 sc in ring; join.

Rnd 2) * Ch 5, skip 3 sc, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around (6 loops).

Rnd 3) In each loop around make sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, and sc; join.

Rnd 4) * ch 5, sc in back loop of sc between this and next petal. Repeat from * around (6 loops).

Rnd 5) In each loop around make sc, ch 2, 7 dc, ch 2, and sc; join.

Rnd 6) Sl st in each of next 2 ch, sc in same place as last sl st, * ch 5, skip 3 dc, sc in next dc, ch 5, sc in 1st ch of next ch 2, ch 5, sc in 2nd ch of next ch 2. Repeat from * around; join to 1st sc.

Rnd 7) Sl st to center of 1st loop, sc in same loop, * ch 6, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around; join.

Rnd 8) Sl st to center of 1st loop, sc in same loop. Ch 8, sc in 5th ch from hook, (picot is made), ch 3, sc in next loop (1 picot loop made). * ch 5, sc in center of 1 loop on last rnd of center piece, ch 2, sc in 2nd ch of ch 5, ch 3, sc in next loop on rosette. Repeat from * 5 more times, (6 loops joined). Make a picot loop in all remaining loops of rosette; join (12 free picot loops). Fasten off.

Second Rosette:
Rnds 1-7) Work 1st 7 rnds as for 1st Rosette.

Rnd 8) Sl st to center of 1st loop, sc in same loop, make 1 picot loop, then join to 1st Rosette as follows: Ch 5, sc in picot of 2nd free loop after last joining on 1st Rosette; (ch 2, sc in 2nd ch of ch 5, ch 3, sc in next loop on rosette, ch 5, sc in next picot on 1st Rosette) twice, this 3rd joinng is made in the picot of the last joining of 1st Rosette to center- ch2, sc in 2nd ch of ch 5, ch 3, sc in next loop on rosette. Join next 5 loops of 2nd Rosette to next 5 loops on center in same way as 1st Rosette was joined. Make a picot loop in all remaining loops of rosette; join (10 free picot loops). Make 11 more rosettes, joining in same way and taking care to join the last rosette on both sides.

Finishing:"
Stretch doily on ironing board and spray with water. Pin in place with rust proof pins to block. Allow to dry and remove pins.
