Big Vintage Doily Free Crochet Pattern



Happy Holidays! 




In the original publication (Priscilla Doily Book No. 101 by Coats & Clark's, 1958) this doily is called Midsummer Moon. But I'm going to use it as a Winter Holidays decoration.

This doily is very big; I couldn't even get it all into a picture. I used size ten crochet cotton thread and a 1.25 mm steel hook. My finished doily measures 22 inches across.  It took me about a week to finish this doily. 



Starting at center, ch 4. 1st rnd: 15 dc in 4th ch from hook. Join with sl st to top of starting chain.

2nd rnd: Ch 4, * dc in next dc, ch 1. Repeat from * around. Join to 3rd ch of ch-4 (16 sps).
