I rediscovered this pattern a few years ago in the instruction booklet I had when I was 10. Translated it in English then more or less in my own words published it on my blog. That has been a hit ever since, thought I'd share it here too.

After practising on a few like these I was also able to work out a more complicated doily. Recommended for beginning doily makers who look up against it!

My abbreviations (in universal terminology; BE readers pls look up conversion charts USA>>BE):

ch - chain stitch (Dutch: losse)
ss - slip stitch (Dutch: halve vaste)
sc - single crochet (Dutch: vaste)
dc - double crochet (Dutch: stokje)

Start: 6 ch, close as a ring with a ss.

Row 1: 2 ch, 23 dc under the starting ch, close with a ss in the 2nd ch of the beginning of this row.

Tip: Find it difficult to fit 23 dc in? Make about 6 at a time then pull them back tightly between thumb an index finger, make the next 6 and repeat.

Row 2: 4 ch, 1 dc in the closing ss of the previous row; 1 ch. *skip 2 st; in the next st: 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc; 1 ch*. Repeat 7x from *to*. Close row with a ss in 2nd ch (of 4) of the start.

Row 3: 2 ch; 1 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc under the 2 ch of the previous row; 1 sc under the 1 ch. *2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc as before; 1 sc as before*. Repeat 7x from *to*. Close row with a ss in 2nd ch (of 2) of the start.

Row 4: No build up with ch as before; directly 3 dc, 1 ch, 3 dc under the 2 ch of the previous row; 1 sc to the left and right of the sc of the previous row. Repeat 8x and close with a ss in the first st of the row. Bind off or crochet a loop if you want to hang it up, then bind off.

I do wonder if the pattern isn't copyrighted? If you translated it from an instruction booklet, it might be...

The flowers are beautifully worked, I like them Smiley

Thanks BeaG and Naantje.

The book is 40+ years old and doesn't even mention a writer. The pattern has been on my blog since 2009, other blogs have linked to it and I never had any problems. As long as I don't ask money for it... but I don't even sell the finished product on Etsy exactly because it's not my own design.

This pattern is quite basic and it may be around elsewhere anyway. But I've seen at least one shop on Etsy (and if I know her shop she may know my blog) that uses the coaster as a photo prop and that made me smile.
