I wanted to make a large doily to use as a tablecloth; so I used worsted-weight yarn, instead of thread. It didn’t block out as large as I was hoping, but it fits on a different table than intended.
The pattern I chose was Cosmos Doily.
I would say this took me about 8 hours to make; however, I did get a little confused and had to rip out an entire round.
The pattern instructions are great, until you get to rounds 11 and 12. Then, they get a little confusing (to me.) Thankfully there was a photo that I could use to see where things should go.
This doily used about 3/4 of a full 7-ounce skein of yarn.
I am likely to make this again.
