Sunbursts Small Lace Doily With Ruffled Edging

Pattern Created by Sandi Marshall

Printing: Many newer printers will print fine from this page or you can use the Printer-Friendly Page. If only the ad at the top of the page prints, try this: before choosing the Print command, click on the pattern portion of the page (tells your printer what part of the page you want to print), then choose Print.

I designed this small doily in an openwork lace design and gave it an edging with ruffled portions. The center of this doily is my variation of my own Lace Flower Face Cloth design. I made up the edging as I went along, with chain loops between ruffles, using areas of solid stitches for the parts that curl into ruffles. The stitch combinations that I used on the solid areas give a look that's unique for ruffles.

Materials Used In The Example: Size 10 cotton thread (you could substitute any brand of size 10 thread), I used Aunt Lydia's Classic Crochet Thread color 201 White and color 26 Shaded Purples
US Size 7 steel crochet hook
Finished Size: About 7 1/2 inches in diameter, at widest points
Gauge is not important for this project because a doily can successfully be any finished size so if yours turns out larger or smaller than the example, that's fine.

I used a front post stitch in this design. For a how-to, see: http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa060797.htm ... another special stitch that I used is a bobble made of 3 double crochet. How To Crochet a 3-dc Bobble: Work 3 dc into a same stitch, leaving the last loop of each stitch on the hook, then yarn over the hook and draw through all loops on the hook, chain 1 to close the bobble.

The photo on the left shows a two-tier rose added to the center of the doily. This is a nice touch if you are using the doily as a decoration by itself (if you are putting a vase, figurine or other home decor item in the center of the doily, then you'll want to leave the doily center flat, with no flower added). I made the rose with my Two-Tier Rose With Ties pattern so that it ties on and can be removed if I decide to put a vase in the center for awhile.
