This doily was so much fun to make. Little did I know when I started making it that I was supposed to start with the outside piece first. You crochet the outside piece back and forth kind of like knitters do to make lace. Then, just like magic, it starts forming a circle to fit on the outside of the inside piece.
Here’s a picture of the finished piece. This needs to be added to the bottom of the pile of ironing for a nice surprise.
