This is such a pretty pattern. I have finally decided to try my hand at thread crochet, since one of the members of my crochet group is a whiz. I'm going to use this pattern to get me going.

Thanks for sharing. Blessings to you in the New Year! Leslie

I have just finished this and I'm delighted with my attempt. It's the first thread crochet item I've ever tried, and my first doily.

Thank-you so much for the pattern, it's beautiful and km delighted with my result. I've found one mistake on round 4 I've done 2 DC rather than 3 in one place, but I don't *think* that anyone else would notice.

Thanks again for the pattern.

Should I block this now, and is stray starch ok to use. What do you suggest?

Thank-you.
