This is a replica of an old doily that I found in an antique store years ago. It is one of my favorites. I'm sure it will be yours too. The pansies are worked first and then joined in the leaf round. This is a challenging round to do, but it's well worth the effort. The flowers are made with embroidery floss - one skein for each flower. The center is worked in DMC cebelia thread #10. We worked this in white with pastel colored pansies but we liked this color scheme better.

This was one of the first things that I learned to crochet (many, many years ago) and I was thrilled to find this pattern again. It's a show stopper in any setting, never fails to get compliments.
