Summer Evening Doily

Summer Evening Doily

I like this pattern so much, I’ve made it twice. Usually I only do one doily from a pattern, but this one is the exception. I love the open space in this one, and it tatted up rather quickly. The first one I made I entered in the Colorado State Fair and won second place. I later gave it to my sister-in-law. I missed having it around, so I made myself another one. I keep it under a statue of Christ I have in my living room.

The pattern is called “Summer Evening” and can be found in Traditional Tatting Patterns, edited by Rita Weiss.
