Russian Doyley


The colour combination is what attracted me to this doyley which I tatted in Lizbeth 20. The colours are Natural, Harvest Orange, and Mocha Brown . I did altter it a little . It was worked from a diagram, and as I cannot read Russian, I cannot give the name of the book, or attribute the designer

Gorgeous! I love the color combination. I can't read Russian either, and I'm sure I'd have difficulty interpreting the pattern. You did a wonderful job!

Wow. Just wow! This doily takes my breath away. Love the colors and your tatting is superb! Great job working from a Russian diagram.

Fantastic! So intricate a design. However did you work following a Russian pattern?!

Just beautiful - the colors, the tatting, and the pattern combine into this wonderful doily! Would it be possible to show a scan of the book so we might know the source? (I'm always on the lookout for nice foreign books) :-)

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I borrowed the Russian book from our Guild Library, but it is on the Handy Hands site, and is the very first one on the Foreign Books list, the one with the tatted vest (which I also want to do!).

It is easy to follow diagrams in foreign books, as they have the stitch counts there. I did make a false start, and did normal picots where I should have done extra long picots, and I did tweak the stitch count a bit in a couple of places, but all in all, it is quite easy.

I found my way via Jon. I love your work and that you do 'big' doilies. I plan to do more of these some day.

Since I could not find your email address, do you mind contacting me so that we can talk offline?
