2016 Doily row 3

Here’s row 3!  I think this doily works with just this many rows, but I’m going to continue it.  I’m having fun adding new colors!  I think this would look good in one color, too.  Some of the design elements would show up better without the distraction of the color changes, like the three clovers in a row on each side.

In case you missed them, here are links to the first two rows.

Row 1
Row 2

I used Lizbeth Orange Crush Color 183 Size 40 thread for this row. The design as shown is approximately 5 inches (16 cm) across when stitched with size 40 thread.
