I made this for my friend Ulla. She got it yesterday. This is my first attempt at a doily. The pattern is from a magazine (british, I think). I initially wanted to used solid color thread but could not find the right color at the local shop. So did it in variegated. It is Anchor size 8 thread and hook size was probably 2.00mm. The finished diameter of the doily was about 32 cm.
