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.







sc decrease on Round 11

1- insert hook into next sc (first sc of the next 4-sc group).
2- yo and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook).
3- skip next 2 sc and insert hook into next sc (last sc of the 4-sc group).
4- yo and pull up a loop.
5- yo and draw through all 3 loops on the hook.


triple picot on Round 12

1- ch 4.
2- slip st in fourth ch from hook.
3- ch 7.
4- slip st in seventh ch from hook.
5- ch 4.
6- slip st in fourth ch from hook.
