My First Design

Tapestry-overlay spirograph design

I proudly present my first-ever doily design! I haven't yet bestowed a name upon this design. I was inspired by a mandala design, and wanted to translate that into a doily. I used Lizbeth size 20 thread in a lot of shades of purple, on a 1.25 mm hook.

Tapestry techniques were used to achieve the solid mat and overlay stitches. The overlay stitches are a progression of split stitches beginning with a double crochet increasing to a 5 yo stitch. The overlay forms a simple spirograph.
