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.

Allow the doily to dry completely before removing the pins.

 Step 2- Pick up a loop of the thread you are joining and draw through.

Step 3- Ch 1.

Step 4- To make the first FPsc, insert hook around the post of the same dc and pick up a loop.

Step 5- Pull up a loop, there should be 2 loops now on the hook.

Step 6- yo and draw through both loops on the hook.


Finishing Round 9

Insert hook around the post of the next dc (same st as the first FPsc) and above the first FPsc and make the last FPsc.  To make the last ch-5 space, ch 2 and dc in the first FPsc.



Round 10


Working with the right side of the doily facing up, ch 3 (counts as first dc), and make 6 dc in the same st (the dc of last ch-5 space made).  [ch 3 and make 7 dc in the center ch of the next ch-5 space] around.  To make the last ch-3 space- ch 1 and hdc in the third ch of the first dc.

Making the first FPdc on Round 11

Step 1- yo and insert hook around the post of the next dc.

Step 2- yo and pull up a loop, there should be 3 loops on the hook.

Step 3- yo and draw through 2 loops, 2 loops remaining on the hook.

Step 4- yo and draw through the last 2 loops on the hook.

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.
