EIGHT INCH DOILY

For this doily I used a size 20 crochet cotton and 1.00mm needle.  With my tension it worked out approximately 8 inches (20 cm) across.

 

Special instructions:  A cluster is made by leaving the last loop of each stitch on hook, then when

all stitches in the group have been worked, yarn over and draw through all remaining loops together.

 

 

To begin, ch7, join with sl st to form a ring.

 

Round  1:          Ch6, trc in ring, (ch2, trc in ring) 8 times, ch2, join to 4th ch of initial ch6.

                        (10 spaces)

 

Round  2:          Sl st into 1st space.  Ch4 (to count as first trc), 5 more trc in same space.

                        6trc into next space and each space around.  Join with sl st in top of ch4 at

                        beginning of round.

 

Round  3:          Ch4, trc in next 5 trc.  *Ch2, trc in next 6 trc.  Repeat from * around.  Ch2 join

                        in top of ch4 at beginning of round.

 

Round  4:          Ch4, work a trc cluster over next 5 trc.  *Ch2, work 6trc in next ch2 space, ch2,

work trc cluster over next 6 trc.  Repeat from * around.  Ch2, 6trc in last ch2 space,ch2,

join in tip of 1st cluster.

 

Round  5:          Ch6, trc in each of next 6 trc, *ch2, trc in tip of next cluster, ch2, trc in next

                        6 trc.Repeat from *  around.  Ch2 and join in 4th ch of ch6 at beginning of round.

 

Round  6:          Ch9, trc cluster over next 6 trc.  *Ch5.  (trc, ch3, trc) in next trc.  Ch5, trc

                        cluster over next 6 trc.  Repeat from * around.  After last trc cluster is worked

                        ch 5, trc in next trc of previous row, ch3 and join in 4th ch of beginning ch9.

 

Round  7:          Sl st across to tip of 1st cluster.  Ch1, sc in same tip.  Ch7, sc in next ch3

                        space. *Ch7, sc in tip of next cluster, ch7, sc in next ch3 space.  Repeat from

                        * around.  Ch7, sl st in 1st sc at beginning of round to join.

 

Round  8:          Sl st to centre of 1st loop.  Ch1, sc in same loop, *ch8, sc in centre chain of

                        next loop.  Repeat from * around ending with ch8, sl st in 1st sc of round.

 

Round  9:          Ch4, trc in each ch and sc around.  Join with sl st to 4th ch of beginning ch4.

 

Round 10:         Ch6, trc in same place as join.  *Skip 3 trc.  (trc, ch2, trc) in next trc.  Repeat

                        from * around.  Sl st in 4th ch of beginning ch6 to join.

 

Round 11:         Sl st in space.  Ch7, trc in same space.   *In next space work (trc, ch3, trc).

                        Repeat from * around.  Sl st in 4th ch of beginning ch7 to join.

 

Round 12:         Sl st in next space.  Ch4, 2 trc in same space.  *ch3, 3trc in next ch3 space. 

                        Repeat from * around.  Ch3 and join in top of beginning ch4.

 

Round 13:         Ch6, skip 1 trc, trc in next trc.  3trc in space.  *Trc in next trc.  Ch2, skip 1 trc,

                        trc in next trc, 3trc in space.  Repeat from * around.  Join in 4th ch of ch6 at

                        beginning of round.

 

Round 14:         Ch4.  3trc in next space.  *trc in next trc, ch3 skip 3trc, trc in next trc.  3trc in

                        next space.  Repeat from * around.  Ch3 and join.

Round 15:         Ch1, sc in same place as join.  Sc in each trc and chain around.  Join in 1st sc

                        (320 sc worked)

 

Round 16:         Edge 

                        Sl st to centre sc over space.  Work a 3trc cluster into same sc.  Ch4, sc in 3rd

                        ch from hook, ch1, a 3trc cluster into same stitch as last cluster. 

                        Ch3, *skip 7sc, 3trc cluster into next sc.  Ch4, sc in 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 3trc

                        cluster in same stitch as last trc cluster.  Ch3.  Repeat from * around.  Sl st to

                        join in tip of 1st cluster.

 

Fasten off and darn in ends.
