This is a good piece to practice some more complex instructions - this one has a few extra turns. This sample was made as gift for a friend who wanted a tiny doily. It was made with DMC Cebelia #10 thread and an 8 or 9 hook and measured 6 inches across. This makes and elegant and sturdy dresser scarf or table runner.
Here are the instructions for the motif. I'll post the entire pattern shortly, which includes instructions for joining motifs.
