Pretty blue doily edge finished

This lovely little doily just needs the ends sewn in and a little blocking. It is from a Russian translation of an Italian book, gifted to me by a kind friend.

Blue doily edge. From Russian/Italian pattern. Size 50 Altin basak blue thread paired with Lizbeth 40 rainbow taffy.

This has been my standby project, so I will need to find something else to have in its place.

Edit: here is an image of the book cover, as requested in the comments.

I haven’t been tatting very much this year as I have been time crocheting and knitting. One of the bigger pieces I made was a crocheted item for a commissioned yarn bombing at a shopping centre. It was a fun project to be part of.

I do miss my shuttles though, so I hope to have some of the new coloured threads on my shuttle soon to share some eye candy with you.

Until next time

Happy tatting

  1. Charming doily and I LOVE the crocheted pillar! The vine is awesome. 😉

    This is the most beautiful pattern! Can you show the cover of the book, so we can recognize it to find it -I know the words aren’t going to be any help to find it. I’m always afraid of things like this and handkerchiefs… anything you have to meet the end with. because I don’t understand how you can ever be sure it will end on the right part of the motif to join to the beginning. I wish I could figure this out, as this is absolutely beautiful – well done!

    • I’ll try and add a photo of the book cover tonight. In the planning for each peice I do a sample of a repeat to measure against my fabric and estimate the number of repeats for the last join to be made. This pattern has a bigger section to repeat, so it was a bit more important to count the spaces on the crochet header row carefully.

  3. Hopefully you can see the cover in the updated blog above.
