This is only the second pattern from "Coffee 'N Cream" by Patricia Kristoffersen that I've attempted. This pattern book is exceptional! Each doily is unique but thematic. You can see the similarities between each one.
I used a 1.75mm hook with Alize Miss Batik thread in the color #3720. After blocking, the doily came out to 11-inches (28cm) in diameter.
I am not happy how abrupt the purple changed around the center to blue, but what can you do. All the other transitions in the thread were smooth, but for some reason when it transitions from the purple, it does so quite abruptly. I also really enjoy the use of white in the thread. I think it gives it a unique brightness.
