Working Out This Doily from Alenalea

 This doily is a tat along on Facebook which I don't belong yet. click here Alenalea (thank you). 
Margaret is the one who found and sent me this information.
 After finishing all chain rows, you get to do some rings and chains. keep in mind I had an awful time with the chain count on the last row of the chain before the rings and chains. I was confusing for my brain but may be fine with everyone else.

Now here is where a design suggestion could go two ways, to attach the flowers was made.  After attaching the flowers one way they did not look right and so it worked out much better this way.
 Ring of 4 separated by 3 picots. the middle picot attaches to pervious round middle picot of chain. Then I chained 12 ds. (double stitches) attached a picot from flower and 12 ds. and then the pervious ring count. Then a chain and attach the second part of flower and repeat.
Now between the flowers a chain of 10ds. and picot and 6ds.  then a ring of 4ds picot, separated by 2ds and 4 more picots separated by 2ds then 4ds close ring. chain 6 picot then 10 and another ring attached to pervious row 


Well this work out well and speeded up things a bit.  Happy so far with this result.
have a great week!

  5. I seem to have missed your earlier posts on this!
    It looks so pretty and the colours really pop out against the last background.
    I'm glad you worked it out to your satisfaction ... I'm not on facebook, so cannot comprehend the details.

  7. I loved your colours, I'm on the first few rounds of the middle, Hopefully will get to the place where the pattern changes as I have decided to change colours and not got the other colour with me.
    I will bear in mind your change of stitch count when I get it that point. You will be finished before me.
