Renulek's Spring Doily.

I haven't been tatting almost anything in the last months, but designing, coding, studying, then realized that it seems that these days every tatter in the tatting groups I belong to, are talking about or tatting Renulek's Doily.

My tatting friend also tatted it. I had to asked myself what that doily had to be so special.

Well, It's an impressive doily indeed. So, if I would like tatting it, what would I need? Pictures don't show the real size of the doily

First, the pattern. It's easier and portable to have a written pattern than a picture of every round.

Second, the thread. If the doily were small, I would have enough thread at home, but if it were a big one (and it is), I'd have to buy... Well, It's an excuse just to go to the (online) shop to buy threads, maybe some shuttles, you know, for the new doily :)

I took the pattern from the Renulek's pictures posted in her blog. If there is(are) any mistake(s), please comment it here, to correct it.

This is a massive pattern, you are awared.

I have divided the pattern in rounds as Renulek did and calculated the thread for each round, so if you want to use different threads in every round you'd know how much thread you'd need to load in every shuttle.

I've also added the link for every round, please check them to have a visual guide.

Remember that THREAD 1 is used to tat the first shape of the pattern or the round.

It would be nice having a Moonlit shuttle to tat from ROUND 3 to ROUND 13. But if you have to reload your shuttle in the middle of the round remember to add 30cm or 1ft to THREAD1 if the round ends in a ring plus 30cm 1ft to THREAD2 if it ends with a chain for every reload.
