Fleur de Lys Doily

 

Jacqui Cunningham 2003

 

 

 

I made this with No.40 crochet cotton and a 0.6 mm hook.   It worked out about 7 inches or 18 and cm across.  If anyone makes it in heavier cotton Id love to know how it works out and the size.

 

Special instructions:

 

Dtr Fleur de Lys:  Dtr in loop.  (Insert hook under bar of dtr just made and pull up a loop.  Yarn over and pull through 1 loop on hook) 9 times.  Insert hook under bar one more time and pull up a loop.  Yarn over and pull up through all loops on hook.  Yarn over and pull loosely through loop.  First petal made.

*Ch2, dtr  in same loop as last petal was made and make another petal as before.  Rpt from * once more.  Fleur de Lys completed.

Ch 10, join with sl st to form a ring.

 

Rnd  1:  Ch 5 (to count as 1st dtr) , 31 dtr in ring.  Join with a sl st in top of ch5.  (32dtr)

 

Rnd  2:  Ch1.  sc in same place as join.  (ch4, skip 1dtr, sc in next drt) 15 times.  ch 4, join with sl st in 1st sc at beginning of round.  (16 loops).

 

Rnd  3:  Sl st in 1st loop.  Ch5.  Dtr in next loop and complete a Dtr Fleur de Lys.  (dtr in next loop, fdl in next loop) 7 times.  Sl st in top of ch5 at beginning of round to join.

 

Rnd  4:  Ch 9 and turn so that right side is facing.  Dc in top of centre petal on next fleur de lys.  ch6, * dc  in next dtr, ch6 , dc in top of nest fdl. 

Rpt from * to end.  Ch6, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch9 to join.

 

Rnd  5:  Sl st into next loop.  Ch3, 2dc in same loop, ch3, 3dc in same loop.  *in next loop work 3dc, ch3, 3dc.  Rpt from * around.  Sl st to join.

Rnd  6:  Sl st across to ch3 space.  Ch3, work 2 more dc in space working off together for a cluster.  Ch3, 3dc cluster in same space *ch3, skip 3dc, dc in gap before next 3dc.  (ch3, 3dc cluster, ch3 3dc cluster) in next ch3 space.

Rpt from * around.  Ch3, sl st in top of 1st cluster to join.

 

Rnd  7:  Sl st into space and work beginning cluster.  Ch3, cluster in same space.  Ch4, sc in next dc.  *ch4 (cluster, ch3, cluster in next ch3 space above clusters.  Ch4, sc in next dc.  Rpt from * around.  Ch4, sl st in top of 1st ch3 cluster.

 

Rnd  8:  Sl st into space between clusters.  Ch1, sc in same space, ch3, sc in same space again.  *Ch8, sc between next 2 clusters, ch3, sc in same space.  Rpt from * around.  Ch8, sc in 1st sc to join.

 

Rnd  9:  Sl st in 1st 3ch loop.  Ch1, sc in same loop.  Ch6, sc in 8ch loop, *ch6, sc in 3ch loop.  Ch6, sc in next 8ch loop.  Rpt from * to end.  Ch6, sl st in 1st sc to join.

 

Rnd 10:  Ch3, work 3dc in next loop, ch1, 3dc in same loop.  *Dc in next sc (3dc, ch1, 3dc) in next loop.  Rpt from * around.  Join in 3rd ch of ch3 at beginning of round.

Rnd 11:  Ch6, sc in 3rd ch from hook.  Dc in same st as join.  *Ch1, skip 6 dc.  In next dc work (3dc, ch3, 3dc).  Shell completed.  Skip 6dc.  (dc, ch3, sc in 3rd ch from hook, dc, ch3, dc, ch3, sc in 3rd ch from hook, dc) all in next dc. Picot shell completed.

Rpt from * to last 6dc before end of round.  Ch1, then in joining space at beginning of round work dc, ch3, sc in 3rd ch from hook, dc, ch3 and sl st to join in 3rd chain of starting chain (just below the picot).

This completes the picot shell started at the beginning of the round.

 

Turn work.

 

Rnd 12:  Sl st to centre space of picot shell.  Ch6, sc in 3rd chain from hook.  Dc in same space.  Skip 1st dc of next shell.  Dc in next 2 dc.  (2dc, ch3, 2dc) in ch3 space.  Dc in next 2 dc.  Skip last dc of shell.  *Picot shell in centre space of next picot shell.  Skip 1st dc of next shell.  Dc in next 2 dc.  (2dc, ch3, 2dc) in ch3 space.  Dc in next 2 dc.  Skip last dc of shell.

Rpt from * around.

Dc in next picot shell space.  Dc, ch3, sc in 3rd ch from hook, dc, ch3 and slip st to join in 3rd ch of ch6 at beginning of round.  Completes picot shell.

 

Turn

 

Rnd 13:  The same as rnd 12, but shell is worked as follows. Skip 1st dc, dc in next 3 dc, (2dc, ch3, 2dc) in space, dc in next 3dc, skip last dc.

 

Turn

 

Rnd 14:  Same as rnd 12, but shell is worked as skip 1st dc, dc in next 4 dc (2dc ch3, 2dc) in space, dc in next 4dc.  Skip last dc.

 

Turn

 

Rnds 15 and 16:  Same again increasing by 2dc in each shell as before and turning at the end of 15th round.  Do not turn at end of 16th round.

Rnd 17:  This round must be worked with wrong side facing.  Sl st over to 2nd dc of next shell.  Ch3.  *dc in next 7dc.  (2dc, ch3, 2dc) in centre loop of shell.  Dc in next 7 dc.  Ch2, dtr Fleur de Lys in centre loop of picot shell, ch2, skip 1st dc of shell.  Rpt from * to last Fleur de Lys.  Ch2, sl st in top of ch3 at beginning of round to join.  Do not turn.

 

Rnd 18:  Sl st to ch3 space in shell.  Ch1, turn.  (Sc, ch3, sc) in space.  Ch9, (sc, ch3, sc) in tip of centre petal of Fleur de Lys.  *Ch9, (sc, ch3, sc) in 3ch space of next shell, ch9 (sc, ch3, sc) in tip of Fleur de Lys.

Rpt from * to last Fleur de Lys.  Ch9, sl st to join in 1st sc of round.

 

Rnd 19:  Ch1, sc in same ch3 space.  Ch5, sc in next 9ch loop.  *Ch5, sc in next ch3 loop, ch5, sc in next 9ch loop.  Rpt from * around.  Ch5, sl st in 1st sc to join.

 

Rnd 20:  Ch1, sc in same st as join.  6dc in next 5ch loop.  Sc in next sc.  6dc in next 5ch loop.  Sc in next sc.  Ch8, drop loop from hook and insert hook into sc just made.  Place loop back on to hook and draw through to form a ring.  15sc into ring just made.  Sc into same sc of previous round.  Continue working 6dc into each 5ch loop and sc into each sc around making a sc ring above each Fleur de Lys.  Join in 1st sc.

 

Fasten off and darn in ends.

 

A quick wash and iron and I dont think that you can tell that its been dragged around the garden and chewed on a bit by the dog.
