"Valerie" in white

This is my favorite pattern by Patricia Kristoffersen. It's only 22 rounds and not that complicated. Row 17 can be a real pain because it takes forever to make all the strands of the petals, but it's well worth it. You really do appreciate how creative crochet can be with a pattern like this.

"Valerie" is a pattern from the book "Exquisite Doilies" and can be purchased here. I highly recommend it.  I bought the book for $4 and I've done this pattern twice. The other patterns are lovely as well. 

I used a 1.75mm hook this time and it came out to about 15-inches in diameter. You may purchase this listing here, or if it's already sold, you can commission one from me here.
