Purple Star Doily Part 2


by M. J. Joachim
Betcha wondered if I was ever going to add to that purple doily I showed you a couple weeks ago. I kept it close wondering how I would finally end up making it bigger. I didn’t test any ideas, for fear the thread might fray because I had so many ideas in my mind. Over the weekend, I came up with a dandy and today I finally picked up my hook and finished our doily, making it approximately 14 inches diameter/38 inches circumference.
Please refer to Part 1 of this Purple Doily pattern, before following the steps below.
Part 2 – Purple Doily
Step 1:  Chain 3 (counts as 1st dc); make 3 dc over chain 3 just made
Step 2:  Double crochet in 3rd stitch from hook; make 3 dc over dc just made
[Repeat Step 2 around; join with slip stitch to top chain of 1st chain 3]


Step 3:  Chain 4 (counts as 1st triple); make 2 more triple in same place – between dc groups
Step 4:  Make 3 triple in space between each dc group around, joining with a slip stitch to top chain of 1st chain 4


Step 5:  Slip stitch into next triple, chain 1, single crochet in same place
Step 6:  Chain 5, single crochet in 3rd triple from hook (center triple of next group of 3 triples)
[Repeat Step 6 around, ending with chain 5 and joining with slip stitch to 1st sc in round]
Step 7:  Slip stitch in next 2 chain; single crochet in chain 5 loop
Step 8:  Chain 5, single crochet in next chain 5 loop
[Repeat Step 5 around, ending with chain 5 and joining with slip stitch to 1st sc in round.]


Repeat Steps 7 & 8 one more time around.
Step 9:  Repeat Step 7
Step 10:  Chain 7, single crochet in next chain 5 loop
[Repeat Step 10 around, ending with chain 7 and slip stitching in 1st single crochet
Step 11:  Slip stitch in next 3 chain, single crochet in chain 7 loop; repeat Step 10 around
Finish off. Weave in loose ends. Steam and lay flat to relax stitches.
