This is a doily my grandmother made.
I had always been told that she did tatting
which I've never been able to do.
I was looking at a tatted piece in a magazine
and I thought that I could make something similar in crochet.
This made me think of my grandmother's doily
so I got it out and, low and behold,
it was crocheted - not tattted.
This is my first attempt to re-create my grandmother's doily.
I tried to do everything the same,
except the final round which was done in picots.
I hate to do picots.
This is the final version.
I have been working on writing down the pattern,
