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.

Here is a chart of the doily.  Start with ch 5 and slip st in the 5th ch from hook to make a ring.  There are 16 dc in the first round.

Starting Round 8
Step 1- ch 3 and make a dc in the third ch from the hook (first cluster made).
Step 2- ch 3 and make a slip st in the third ch from the hook (picot made).
Step 3- Repeat Step 1 to make the second cluster.
Step 4- Skip the next 6 dc and make a slip st in the next dc (center dc of next 7-dc group).

I hope that you enjoyed this pattern!  Stay tuned for part 2! :D

  1. The finished doily is just beautiful!!!

  2. I am a little confused about part 1 and part 2 can you be more specific

  3. This has been selected as our groups first 2019 doily of the month! I just finished part 1! Lovely pattern, thank you!

  4. You should make a video tutorial..these are amazing

  5. I haven't yet begun this amazing work of art, but I have to tell you I am in awe of your masterpiece!

  6. I sometimes have trouble understanding the instructions, like I get some of it but not all of it. Wish there was a video tutorial on this! But I'll get help from a more "seasoned" crocheter. Thanks, this is beautiful!

  7. Your patterns are great. I would like it better if I didn't have to close out part 1 then go find part 2 and the same with all the pattern. Thank you for publishing it.

  8. Your designs are amazing...I am writing the patterns down in a tablet so I have them all together. I don't have any yarn right now that I can use for this so I wrote it all down even what you said about giving you credit and if I make one for anyone I will attach a small tag to it with your information on it because you do deserve the credit for desining such beauty. Thank you for sharing all your designs with us. We appreciate you and your wonderful talents.

  9. Красотища!!!

  10. I made this it is beautiful. Thank you :)

  11. Thank you for dividing up the full pattern. it's more organized as to not overwhelm the crocheter, and to keep it simple. your patterns are easy to follow, and I'm only an intermediate. I'm using 9.14m thread, using a 2.35mm hook. so sizing should balance out almost!

  12. ok so sizing wasn't quite proportionate, so i'm using a smaller hook. so so delicate!!! I do have one question. i love this yarn you are using.... what is the brand and where can i get it??

  13. Great woork..but would you please make these totourials as pdf be easy to save it..thanks

  14. I have been told (and shown) by a fellow crocheter that there is a part four that has not been documented as an instruction. If this is true (she showed me a picture) and "Manifestation" part four of Arcano weave exists, I'd love to have that, too.

    1. She posted both part 4 and 5 here on her website. Click on the Patterns tab above and look under "Doilies".

  15. Wow Beautiful Pattern, Thank you <3

  16. Beautiful doily. Thanks for sharing.

    When making the whole doily (all four parts) do you block each part individually or wait and block the whole doily at once?

  17. Right now I am making the second one, thinking of joining them to have a nice decoration. Love You, and your patterns,

  18. Thank you! This pattern is absolutely gorgeous! Suz
