This is so gorgeous. Can you tell us what material you used and what are the finished dimensions? It is absolutely wonderful. Hope you can share the pattern.

Wow! It turned out great. What size is it? How did you finish the edging?

Amazing! Very interesting pattern and excellent workmanship.

Just beautiful symmetry, elegant in both form and geometry. You've done yourself proud!

Great Job, the geometrics are beautiful!

Hey! It worked! YEAH!!!!!

and it looks really good.

This is a doubled adaptation - to both make the design larger and to be blocked square. I think (hindsight is always so much clearer) that maybe it needed to have another round of the rib and diamond around the entire design to set it off and make it easier to block square - but - WELL DONE!

His version of the original is here, Swirl Leaf Doily

i done it with size 8 needles and medium worsted yarn............ it took me over 3 months to finish the project...... I'd start and stop on it b/c of my company business................ i had a wonderful time doing it

Beautiful job. I've often wondered if those doily patterns could be expanded.

RickMartin's picture

Great job! I'm envious. What size did it end up being?

Hey how are you? I noticed this doily in the picture on the main page and I wondered who did it and then I sat down to look at your blog and 'there it is'. I was going to write because you seemed to be from Alabama or had been there recently and I wanted to say hello to you. I have only done one doily in the past and it was a lot of fun. Is that pattern for sale? I would be honored. Anyway, my name is Bryan. Please to meet you.
