Crochet a Petal Doily
This piece, called a Petal Doily, is just a bit different. the stitches are tight, not the typical loose design, with each little petal and there's alot of them, separate and slightly standing.
Technically a doily, it looks more like a mat and has great potential. The directions reference that it's made with Metallic Mercerized Thread (color of your choice), but I think it might also look great in one of the tri-color blends. This pattern comes from the October 1963 issue of The Workbasket. It's a public domain pattern; you may use and share any way you wish.
