Starlight Update


I've updated the original Starlight doily pattern with new instructions and a few very small changes made to the doily.  The original pattern can still be found here- https://www.draiguna.com/p/starlight.html.

There are instructions for 2 different border styles starting on Round 17, a picot border or alternate border with no picots.  A photo tutorial for the picot version is available here- https://www.draiguna.com/p/starlight-photo-tutorial.html.

For the doilies pictured I used Knit Picks Curio crochet thread in the colors Kenai and Turmeric. 


This doily has 19 rounds and measures about 10".  There are instructions for 2 different border styles starting on Round 17, a picot border or alternate border with no picots.
A printer friendly version of the pattern is available here- https://www.draiguna.com/p/starlight-printer-friendly-version.html.

Alternate Border
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 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 to dry completely before removing the pins.
