Hortense was not involved in this project. Remember she always involves herself when it is something outside of my wheelhouse and totally not my cuppa. This is definately my cuppa.
I found the pattern with tutorial on You Tube.I'll add the link at the end of my posting. I realize that Ihave some followers who are not crocheters, I have a lovely cross section of folks here who do all kind of creative lovely things, which would be considered "Hortense" Crafts for me.
But if you are a crocheter, especially with thread this is a real pretty doily. It is a Japanese design, and so the pattern translated needs a wee bit of patience.I love the name of the doily
The Wind Rose isn't that pretty.?
I am crocheting this with a size 7 hook (steel) and size 10 Crochet cotton thread in the color Antique by Hobby Lobby. I am on row 10 and have 14 more rounds to do.
You can find the written pattern and the visual tutorial
Since I wrote this I've made progress, here and there. It was an inside weekend, cold and snowy perfect for snuggling up with a hook and yarn.
