Trilogy Doily

Trilogy Doily Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This doily gets it's name from the 3 sections of filet stitches that are separated from the 2 rounds of Lover's Knot Stitches. You could put a votive candle in the center of this doily for a very attractive centerpiece on a table.

Lover's Knot. This may not be the correct way of doing the lover's knot but it is the way I did it for this pattern.

RND 4: Ch1, sc in same st as slst. (Now pull the thread that is on the hook so that it is about ½" long. Yo, pull through loop. ch1. Sc in the long loop you made over just one strand. The center strand that is to the left of the loop.) This completes the first part of the whole stitch. Then repeat one more time bet ( ) to complete the stitch. This is how you will do each lovers knot around.

Start each lovers knot as a sc. *Sk next dc, lovers knot in next dc. Rep from * around. Join w/slst to first sc of first lover's knot then make that loop ½long and slst to the next sc of the first lover's knot to start your next row. Yes this will double up this spot but it will not show much.
