Starlight Refraction


Today I'm sharing an update to the Starlight doily pattern which has 11 new rounds!  This doily has 21 rounds and the finished size is about 12 1/2" in diameter.  I've included optional instructions for adding glass beads, shown on the pink doily.  These replace the picots of that round.  For the doilies pictured I used Aunt Lydias size 10 cotton crochet thread in the colors orchid pink and ecru.  The beads I used are called rizo beads, available at www.artbeads.com.  



This doily has 21 Rounds.  The finished size is about 12 1/2" in diameter.

(156 dc, 36 picots, 6 triple picots)

Blocking and Finishing

It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the doily to be lightly stiffened. Soak the doily and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the doily working from the center out to the edges. Allow the doily to dry completely before removing the pins.



Making a slip st around the bead on Round 20

1- sc in the next ch-6 space.
2- bring one of the beads next to the sc just made.
3- make a slip st, working around the bead and try to pull tightly.
4- sc once more in the same ch-6 space.

Making an arch on Round 21

1- slip st in the next dc, ch 2 and dc in the same dc.
2- ch 2, dc in the last dc made.
3- ch 5, slip st in fifth ch from the hook to make a picot.
4- ch 3, dc in third ch from the hook.
5- skip over the 2 ch-3 spaces on Round 20 and make a dc in the next dc, ch 2 and slip st in the same dc.

Making a triple picot on Round 21

1- ch 5, slip st in the fifth ch from the hook.
2- ch 7, slip st in the seventh ch from the hook.
3- ch 4, slip st in the fourth ch from the hook.
4- slip st in the very first ch made to complete the triple picot.

Blocking and Finishing

It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the bookmark to be lightly stiffened. Soak and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the bookmark, starting from one end and working to the other. Allow it to dry completely before removing the pins.

Cut a piece of ribbon about 9" to 10" long and starting on back weave the ribbon between each tr, or trtr stitch of the foundation row.  Fold each end of the ribbon in half and cut on a diagonal.  To prevent fraying place a few drops of fray lock glue to the ribbon ends.



Chart for ribbon sizes 1/4" and 3/8"



For ribbon sizes 1/4" and 3/8" 

Foundation Row
1- ch 59.
2- skip 9 chs and tr in 10th ch from the hook, and tr in the next ch also.  This extra tr is for weaving in the ribbon.
3- ch 2, skip next 2 ch, tr in the next ch.
4- Repeat step 3 across (15 more times).  There should be 18 tr and 16 ch-2 spaces, and the 9 skipped chains make a ch-9 space at the other end of the row.

Round 1

1- ch 1, working around the last tr made, make a sc
2- make 4 more sc around same tr.  (5 sc)
3- ch 3, working in the next ch-2 space of the foundation make 3 sc.  (8 sc, 1 ch-3 space)

Continue the round with-  
[sc in free loop of next ch (same chain as the tr on the opposite side), 2 sc in next ch-2 space] 15 times, sc in free loop of each of next 2 ch, [2 sc, ch 3, 7 sc, ch 3, 2 sc] in next ch-9 space, sc in each of next 2 trtr, [2 sc in next ch-2 space, sc in next trtr] 15 times, 3 sc in next ch-2 space.
4- Finish by making a dc in the first sc of the round.  This dc stitch makes the last ch-3 space.

If your work curls like this it's normal and should be fine once blocked- 

Starting Round 2

1- ch 1, [sc, ch 3, sc] around the last dc made on Round 1.
2- skip next 2 sc, dc in the next sc.  Ch 2 to start making the first cluster.
3- Complete the cluster by making 1 hdc in the last dc made.
4- dc in the same sc of the previous round.  Cluster in the last dc made.  Ch 4.
5- Slip st in the hdc of the last cluster made, this completes the first picot.  Next make 1 cluster in the hdc of the last cluster made.
6- [dc, cluster in the last dc made, dc] in the same sc.
7- skip the next 2 sc and in the next ch-3 space work- [sc, ch 3, sc].

Special Stitches

FPdc decrease- keeping last loop of each FPdc on hook, FPdc around the post of next 2 sts indicated, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

small picot- ch 2, slip st in second ch from hook.


  • [ ] - work enclosed instructions the amount of times indicated, or work enclosed instructions in the stitch or space indicated
  • ★ - repeat the following instructions the amount of times indicated.

Blocking and Finishing



It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the doily to be lightly stiffened. Soak the doily and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the doily working from the center out to the edges. Allow the doily to dry completely before removing the pins.






Starting Round 20


1- With the wrong side of the doily facing up, join the thread around the post of center dc of any 15 dc group on Round 18.  Ch 1 and FPsc around the same st.

2- FPsc around each of next 7 dc on Round 18.  Skip the next FPdc decrease.  FPsc around each of the next 5 dc.

3- Ch 7.

4- Turn your work over so the right side is now facing up.


Round 20 continued

1- Skip the next 9 sc, sc in the next sc, slip st in the next sc.

2- ch 1 and turn your work back over so that the wrong side is facing up.

3- 11 dc in the ch-7 space just made.

4- FPsc around each of next 2 dc on Round 18.   

For the remainder of the round repeat from  to ★ 15 times-

 [FPsc, ch 3, FPsc] around next dc, FPsc around each of next 7 dc, skip next FPdc decrease, sc in each of next 5 dc, ch 7, turn, skip next 9 sc, sc in next sc, slip st in next sc, ch 1, turn, 11 sc in next ch-7 space, FPsc around each of next 2 dc on Round 18, repeat from  around, FPsc around next dc, above the first FPsc made, ch 1, hdc in first FPsc to make last ch-3 space.


Rounds 25 to 31, left side of the pineapple only

This is optional if you prefer the look of the pineapple in the photo on the right, though it is a little bit more work.  The steps on how to do this are shown below.  You can also do this with the smaller pineapples if you like :)



FPdc twice around next FPdc, making the second FPdc behind the first.  It helps to make the FPdc stitches on the left side of the pineapple look the same as the FPdc stitches on the right side.  

1- After completing the last sc of the pineapple, FPdc around the next FPdc.

2- yo, and pull the FPdc just made to the front so you can work behind it.  Insert hook from front to back around the post of the same st as the last FPdc made.

3- Yo and pull up a loop.  (3 loops on hook).

4 and 5- [yo, and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice to compete the second FPdc.  



Sc in same dc and FPdc around same dc on Round 33

1- Ch 3 to start the round.

2- FPdc around the next dc.

3- Pull the FPdc just made to the side and working in the same dc make a sc.

4- continue the round with- [ch 1, sc in next dc] 4 times.

 5- FPdc around the post of the same dc as the last sc made.

6- dc in the next dc.
