Decorate a plain hem-stitched linen doily with a dainty lace edging knitted of fine linen thread. This showpiece doily will look amazing anywhere you want a mini-covering under something to protect furniture while displaying your lace knitting at the same time.

Other materials and supplies needed:

  • 8″ single row hemstitched round cotton or linen fabric center (you can find these at places like Lacis and Handy Hands that sell supplies for tatting and fine crochet)
  • small amount of waste thread for provisional cast on
  • small tapestry needle with an eye that is just large enough to accommodate your thread
