Size 10 orange doily thread and size 7/1.65mm hook were used to make doily

Doily measures approximately 10 inches by 10 inches, from leaf point to leaf point around

Step 1: Chain 10, slip stitch into 1st chain to make a ring

Step 2: Chain 3 (counts as 1st dc); make 17 more dc in center of ring, join with slip stitch to top chain of 1st chain 3 in round

Step 3: Chain 3, make (2 dc + chain 1 + 2 dc) in next stitch

Step 4: Make 1 dc in next stitch, make (2 dc + chain 1 + 2 dc) in next stitch

Repeat Step 4 around, join with a slip stitch to top chain of 1st chain 3 in round

Step 5: Slip stitch into each of next 2 dc and in chain 1 space

Step 6: Chain 3, make (1 dc + 1 tr + 2 dc) in same place

Step 7: Chain 2, sc in 3rd stitch from hook, chain 2

Step 8: Make (2 dc + 1 tr + 2 dc in next chain 1 space

Repeat Steps 7 & 8 around, ending with chain 2; join with a slip stitch to top chain of 1st chain 3 in round

Step 9: Slip stitch in next dc; make 1 sc in next triple

Step 10: Chain 3, sc in next sc; chain 3, sc in next triple around, ending with chain 3 and joining with a slip stitch to 1st sc in round

Repeat Steps 16 & 17 around, ending with chain 3 and joining with a slip stitch to 1st sc in round

Step 18: Slip stitch in each of next 2 tr and into chain 1 space

Step 19: Chain 3, make large beginning bead stitch in same space

Step 20: Chain 10, make (2 tr + chain 2 + 2 tr) in 2nd dc from hook, chain 10; make large bead stitch in next space

Yarn over, insert hook, draw up a loop (10 times), yarn over, draw through all loops on hook

Repeat Step 20 around, ending with chain 10 and joining with a slip stitch to top of 1st bead stitch in round

Step 21: Slip stitch into next chain loop; chain 4 (counts as 1 dc + chain 1)

Step 22: Make (1 dc + chain 1) 8 times in same loop, followed by 1 more dc in same loop = 10 dc + 9 chain 1 spaces in chain loop

Step 23: Make (2 tr + chain 2 + 2 tr) in next chain 2 space

Step 24: Make (5 dc + chain 2 + 5 dc) in next chain loop

Step 25: Make (dc + chain 1) 9 times, + 1 dc, in next chain loop (10 dc + 9 chain 1 spaces)

Repeat Steps 23 - 25 around, ending by joining to 3rd chain of 1st chain 4 in round

Step 26: Slip stitch into 1st chain 1 space, chain 1 and make 1 sc in same space

Step 27: Chain 3, make 1 sc in next chain 1 space (8 times)

Step 28: Make (2 tr + chain 2 + 2 tr) in next chain 2 space

Step 29: Make (5 dc + chain 2 + 5 dc) in next chain 2 space

Step 30: Make (1 sc + chain 3) in each of next 8 chain 1 spaces, followed by 1 sc in last chain 1 space of section

Repeat Steps 28 - 30 around, joining with a slip stitch to 1st sc in round

Step 31: Slip stitch into next chain 3 space, chain 1, make 1 sc in same place

Step 32: (Chain 3, make 1 sc in next chain 3 loop) 7 times

Step 33: Make (2 tr + chain 2 + 2 tr) in next chain 2 space

Step 51: Chain 3, sc in next chain 3 loop (twice)

Repeat Steps 49 - 51 around, ending on Step 50 with a slip stitch to 1st sc in round

Step 52: Slip stitch into next chain 3 space; chain 1, make 1 sc in same place; chain 3, make 1 sc in next chain 3 space

Step 53: Make (3 tr + chain 2 + 3 tr) in next chain 2 space; sc in next sc; make (3 tr + chain 2 + 3 tr) in following chain 2 space

Step 54: Make (7 dc + chain 4 + 7 dc) in next chain 3 space

Step 55: Single crochet in next chain 3 space, chain 3, sc in following chain 3 space

Repeat Steps 53 - 55 around, ending with a slip stitch to 1st sc in round

Step 56: Slip stitch into next chain 3 space, chain 1, sc in same place (3 times)

Step 57: Single crochet in next sc and in each of next 3 tr; make 2 sc in following chain 2 space, followed by 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc

Repeat Step 57 one more time for next 7 stitches and chain 2 space between them

Step 58: Make 1 sc in each of the next 7 dc, followed by 4 sc in chain 4 loop, followed by 7 sc in each of following 7 dc; sc in next sc, make 3 sc in next chain 3 loop

Repeat Steps 57 & 58 around, joining with a slip stitch to 1st sc in round.

Finish off, weave in loose ends.

Be careful when steaming this doily to relax the stitches. Do not press iron or steamer directly on top of it. Gently shape doily as you are relaxing its stitches, so the leaf patterns puff up and look 3 dimensional.

Thank you so much for visiting Lots of Crochet Stitches today. I hope you truly enjoy this new pattern and have a wonderful time making it. I’m off to start working on my next big project for you, so I’ll see you again as soon as I’m able.

Best to all,

M. J.
