How about a little doily just for the 12” and under crowd?
Sometime ago i was wanting one for a little table i saw at the Victorian Woodshop. I still don’t have the table, but i can dream. Anyway, i have the doily! This one is 2 1/2 inches across and if you want one a little large just make it in size 20 thread or if you want it for 1/12 scale make it in tatting cotton or finer (size 70 – 100). So here is the pattern….

Rnd 1: 12 dc in ring
Rnd 2: (Sc, ch 2) in each dc around, sl st to first sc.
