I just figured it out!

Sometimes I can be like a dog with a bone. Sometimes I just let things go. This Daffodil Doily had me stumped, and I just couldn't let it go. My friend Denise and I have talked about the pattern several times on the phone. She just started her doily, so she hadn't gotten to the final round to discover the "problem" that I had.

I did as some of my wonderful tatting friends suggested, and sent an e-mail to American School of Needlework. I couldn't find a tatting site for Janette Baker. I'll let you know what their response is.

That just wasn't enough, though. I pored over the picture and the diagram, and I finally saw what happened! On Round 3, all of the chains have 5 picots, except one which has 4. If you tat one chain with only 4 picots, then the edging without Ring A fits perfectly!

Now I think I'll look for some yellow thread, and maybe a touch of green to make a true Daffodil Doily!


  1. How cool that you figured this out. I look forward to seeing your "Daffodils" on the outer round. Something tells me you just might do this one again. Call me psychic...I know, it's a gift, LOL! ;)

  2. I can't remember the rhyme "dear little daffo-down-dilly". What a breath of Spring this brings.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
