Doily of the Week #32

Doily of the Week is back, but I am away on vacation. I have this and another doily post to be posted automatically.

This small doily is extremely simple and easy to make. But sometimes the simplest things are the most charming.

Ferris Wheel Doily Free Pattern (it's a vintage pattern from A Book of Crochet, Book #52, 1935)

Ch 8, join with sl st, ch 5. 1st rnd: 23 tr under ring, join to ch-5 with sl st. 2nd rnd: Ch 5, s c in top of every other tr with ch-5 between, ch 5. 3rd rnd: 3 tr under each ch-5 with ch-3 between, ch 3, s c under ch-5, ch 5. 4th rnd: S c in each 2nd tr and under each ch-3, with ch-5 between, ch 5. 5th to 8th rnds incl: S c under each ch-5, with ch 5 between; sl st to next ch-5, ch 5.

9th rnd: 5 tr under each ch-5, with ch-3 between (count 1st ch-5 as 1 tr), ch 3, sl st under 1st ch-5, ch 5. 10th rnd: S c in each 3rd tr and under each ch-3, with ch-5 between, ch 5. 11th to 13th rnds incl: S c under each ch-5, with ch-5 between. 14th rnd: S c under each ch-5, with ch-7, s c in 3rd ch from hook, ch-4 between.
