The chart for this lovely doily immediately captured my attention and I knew it will be the perfect one for my how to read series.
What the chart says:
Ch 12 and join to make ring.
Rnd 1: ch3 (counts as the 1st dc) and dc 31 in ring. Sl st to end.
Rnd 2: ch1, sc 1 over the first st (of the row below), ch3, skip 1, sc 1 in next st. Repeat pattern to end. Sl st to join round.
Rnd 3: ch1, sc 1 over the first st (of the row below), ch5, sc 1 in next chain. Repeat pattern to end. Sl st to join round.
Rnd 4: ch1, sc 1 on the loop where you ended rnd 3. Make 9 dcs in the next chain /loop. Sc in the next. Repeat this pattern to end. Sl st to join round.
Rnd 5: ch1, sc 1 where you ended the previous round. Ch3, dc4 tog, make a 3-ch picot, ch 3 and sc in the 5th st. Repeat this once more to complete the "9dcs fan" of the round below.
Repeat this pattern around. Sl st to join round.
I used a different color for each round but I believe it will be beautiful in one color only too.
