Center piece doily - written pattern

The chart for this doily was jumping around in different groups on Facebook. I tried to search the origin/designer/look for a written pattern but I had no success, so I made my own written pattern. Note that it's only my interpretation of the chart, so there might be a different way of doing it. Feel free to leave a comment if there's a better way to describe the process :-) Also, English is not my native language so excuse my grammar and other language errors I've made.




This is how I made mine:

  • sl st = slip stitch
  • ch = chain
  • dc = double crochet
  • lp = loop
  • tr = treble 
  • sc = single crochet
  • EOR = until end of round/row
  • pc = picot (ch 3, sc 1 in first ch)
(Written in US terms)
First piece if work in the round.
  1. ch 8, sl st to form a ring.
  2. ch 3 (=1 dc), dc 17, sl st 1. [18 dc in the ring]

    *dc 1, ch 1*. Repeat *-* till end of row (EOR).
    End round with a sl st. [18 dc]
  4. sl st 1 to reach the space, ch 5,
    *dc 1in next space, ch 2*. Repeat *-* EOR. Sl st.

    *dc 2 in next lp, ch 2*. Repeat *-* EOR. Sl st. [18 clusters]

  25. sl st to lp, (dc 3, ch 3, dc 3) in lp,
    ch 3,( dc 1 in space between dc from prev row, ch 1) 12 times ,
    ch 3, (dc 3, ch 3, dc 3) in lp. Turn!
  26. sl st to lp, (dc 3, ch 3, dc 3) in lp,
    ch 3, sc 1 in ch/lp from prev row,
    *ch 4, sc 1 in next lp*, Repeat *-* until all dc are out, ch 4, (dc 3, ch 3, dc 3) in lp. Turn!

    Each row is one loop less than previus in center part.
    Repeat the pattern of r 26 until you have 1 loop left in center part.

  27. sl st to lp, (dc 3, ch 3, dc 3) in lp, ch 3, sc 1 in lp, ch 3, (dc 3, ch 3, dc 3) in lp. Turn!
  28. sl st to lp, (dc 3, ch 3, dc 3) in lp, skip to cluster on the other side of the center, (dc 3, ch 3, dc 3) in lp. Turn!

    Repeat r 28 four more times or as many rows as you wish to finish the end.
  29. sl st to lp,  ch 7, sl st 1 in next lp. Break yarn and fasten ends. Repeat on the other side of the circle piece.
Fasten yarn in 2:nd lp counting backwards from the ch of 20 you made in r 12 and start on row 13. Of course you skip the part of "sl st to lp" :-)
