Large Shell Doily

Hello friends...I came across this really pretty shell doily on Ravelry called the Gemstone Doily, by Foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.  I liked that it uses worsted weight yarn, giving it that not so dainty appeal...



I used some leftover bamboo yarn from another project and made mine larger by adding a few extra rounds and the blue trim.  I had to modify the pattern slightly for the extra rounds to make it lie flat...




I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out...I plan to use on a round pedestal table that we use in the basement beside the sofa...the table top is a pretty painted blue colour, which peaks through oh so prettily.




And, here we are again on my dining room table...
