The Daisy Doily In Tatting

Yea! it is completed all 26 daisy's  I also found out something very special that helped me complete this.
The woman who designed this was Myrtle Hamilton, born in 1899 and designed many different patterns and was loved by many for keeping tatting alive along with many other fiber skills.

to find out more on this dear woman click Here Ambitatterous Blog has a wonderful write up and pictures.
I made a PDF of pattern 
                                             Here is the link to the Daisy PDF.

This is the Monster Doily and I have just started the next round! I have several tips and like fox said I have to write out each round separately, And pay close attention to picot count, most are incorrect if there is not number beside them! Diane also mentioned that there are 3 different #counts
for different styles and that can add to confusion too.

    1. Oh Thank You, wish I could take credit for color choice my daughter was very specific and has a good eye. That last round was done in several different colors and then I realize through all the scribbles it was written written.

  12. What a great job you did on this doily! Thank you so much for giving Myrtle Hamilton credit for the design! She was a wonderful lady and also my Great Grandmother! I loved to watch her tat. She did it so effortlessly. My mother and I learned to tat and I have fond memories of her every time I do!
