Scroll Doily


Someone tell me, “NO! Don’t even start this!” Ahhhh, but recall the ol’ rhino principle?

Rhino Principle

“There’s a certain rule in life that I’ve found worth considering. It particularly applies if you’re confronted by a crisis. I call it the Rhino Principle.” Stephen Chen

I suffer greatly from the rhino principle as you well know. I’ve certainly written about it often enough.

Rhinos Principle Applied

I Google searched and searched and searched for some link to the pattern, but no such luck. So….like a rhinoceros charging, I grabbed thread, hook and began….then, I frogged, began again, frogged, then, luckily before I lost all courage, I came across this vintage pattern

on Antique Pattern Library, and decided it was close enough to begin the Crochet Challenge.

Picking Off the Pattern…How I do it

Using Size 10 cotton crochet thread and 1.75 hook, I look at the photo above, and then try various things to see if I can come close to what I see. I’ve crocheted enough to identify the popcorn stitch, double crochet, and back loop single crochet, and the sum total of the required stitches to make the doily. For the 9″ doily, 1 ball of thread and 2 balls of thread for the 15″ doily.

Luckily, I did decide to write down the successful rounds…mostly it’s where to increase and by how many makes for my greater challenge….but, yikes, it’s still not quite right!

After spending 2 weeks trying to work it out on my own, I posted a photo in my Facebook OUTLANDER STITCHENACHS group of what I had finished + the original photo and let one of our members, who is located in Russia, know I was hunting for the pattern. She responded with this link to a page where one can ‘search’ through over 200 pages of patterns.

Rhino Pays Off

After searching through pages and pages, I finally found the doily!!!! To say the least, I was thrilled to find the chart for making the scroll ‘tape’. However, before I found the directions for making the “scroll tape” for the doily here, I decided to make individual scrolls and sew them together, but…..ugh!

Och! No!!! Still not right!!!!

NOTE:

Recently, when opening the Safari browser and clicking the website immediately leads to opening a pdf of the pattern written in Russian… unfortunately a language I am unable to read. So, I copy/pasted the English translation of the directions because sometimes it dissolves and I have a heck of a time re-finding it!!

Link to the page with the following directions using a hook of 1.5 mm is recommended. Threads of mercerized cotton 443 m / 100 g, total 650 gr

We start the next layer, it is made of ribbon lace (the scheme by click increases): Pay attention, the ribbon lace is tied along the way to the “lugs” formed in the last row of the layer of the central motif from the posts and cones. If all the increases were correct, then you should get 19 pairs of these “ears”. Since there are 2 elements of ribbon lace for one pair of “ears”, the full layer will consist of 38 motifs of ribbon lace.

Having attached the last motive to the first link of a lace a thread to break off and begin to knit the first row of the next layer which will be a strip from rows with columns and “shishechkami”, but about it I will tell at the next stage of work. For those who have questions about the scheme, I tell you in detail.

The motif of the ribbon lace motif is very similar to the central motif, but it fits a bit differently. Let’s get to work: 1 st initial row: We knit a chain of 12 air loops. Immediately make a reservation, for the very first motive, I reduced it to 10 air loops, because the first row of the initial motive turns out to be a bit rougher than the others and I wanted to take a little extra. 2nd row: 1 air lifting loop = 1 bar without crochet, 17 bars without a crochet in a chain of 12 air loops. 3 rd and 4 rd row: air lifting loop = 1 bar without crochet, 17 relief bars without crochet (we tie ordinary posts without a crochet over the back of the column without the custern of the previous row). 5-th row: an air lifting loop = 1 column without a crochet, a relief column without a crochet, (*) a relief column without a crochet, three air loops, a relief column without a crochet in the same loop of the base – a pico appeared, two relief columns without a crochet , repeat 4 times, three relief columns without a crochet. We do not break the thread, we pass to the second motive . We start the work in the following way (see the big diagram): 1st row: 12 air loops, then attach this chain with a column without a crochet into the second picot of the previous motive (see diagram).

Note! Even motifs join in the designated places to the “ears” of the central motive

SCROLL TAPE LACE

Begin the next layer of tape lace it (by clicking circuit increases): Note lace tape attached on the fly to the “lugs”, formed in the last row of a layer of the central motif of the columns and cones. If all allowances have been made correctly you something should turn out 19 pairs of “ears”. As the rod member 2 have lace, a full layer will consist of a rod 38 lace motifs one pair of “ears”. Attaching the last tune to the first link of the lace thread break and start knitting the first row of the next layer, which is a strip of rows and columns with “knobs”, but I’ll explain in the next phase of work. For those who have questions about the scheme, telling detail. Driving ribbon lace motif is very similar to the central motif, but it fit a little differently. Getting Started:

1st starting row: Knit a chain of 12 aerial loops CHAIN 12. (Just make a reservation, for the very first motive I reduce it to 10 stitches, because the first row of the initial motive to get a little rougher than the others, and I wanted it a little further is gathered.)

2nd number: 1 = airbag lifting loop without the pillar 1 sc 17 sc columns without a chain of 12 air loop. (DBL C INTO 4TH CH FROM HOOK, SC 17 AROUND CHAIN—DO NOT CH 1 AT END OF ROUND

3rd and 4th row: air lift loop = 1 sc without the pillar, 17 sculptured columns without sc (we provyazyvaem regular columns without nakida the rear wall of the column, without sc of the previous row).

5th row: air lift loop = 1 the pillar, without sc, the relief column, without sc, (*) the relief column, without sc, three air loops, relief column, without sc in the same base loop – turned pico, two relief columns, without sc repeat 4 times, three relief column, without sc.

The thread is not cut off, turn on the second motive . Getting started as follows (see scheme larger.): 1st number: 12 air loop, and then attach this column without chain nakida second pico previous motif (see diagram.). Note! Even motifs joined in designated areas to “lugs” central motif.

Not Quite Right Yet

Even with the English translation of the scroll tape pattern, things didn’t come together as well as I hoped.

I almost figured out the second row of scrolls, but there was still more to discover. I was UN-willing to frog the individually sewn together scroll motifs, so finished up the doily and gave it to my mother. It is beautiful, although not quite the exquisite one made by the originator of the pattern.

Not Giving Up

I have begun a second effort and it’s working up beautifully.

I’ll make a pdf of the pattern I’ve worked out available soon. In the meanwhile, should you feel inclined, the link to the original is here. Be aware that when you click the link, the text sometimes does not download in English, so I’ve copy/pasted the English here for you.

Original Pattern English Translation

Knit-cloth tablecloth on-line. Part 2. October 6, 2009 Print KNITTING: patterns and schemes

Knitting for home and kitchen. Knitting master classes. Lessons for beginners napkintablecloth Editorial handmade Runet Now you’re ready to go.

Knitting cloth starting from the center of both tape lace, that is not the usual circle formation and increasing, and knitting a single motive-lobe. Then, without interrupting the thread continue to knit the next tab, sticking it in the last row of the previous lobe. Thus perform petals 5 and connect them in a circle, the thread breaks

I specifically singled out the motive of a single petal separately, so that it would be clearer. Let’s get to work:

1 st initial row: We knit a chain of 12 air loops. At once I will make a reservation, for the very first motive I reduced it to 10 air loops, because the first row of the initial motive is a bit coarser than the rest and I wanted to take a little additionally.

2nd row: 1 air lifting loop = 1 bar without crochet, 17 bars without a crochet in a chain of 12 air loops.

3rd row: air lifting loop = 1 bar without crochet, 17 relief columns without a crochet (we are tying the usual bars without a crochet for the rear wall of the column without the cusp of the previous row).

4th row: air lifting loop = 1 bar without crochet, embossed a column without a crochet, (*) a relief column without a crochet, three air hinges, a relief column without a crochet in the same loop of the base – it turned out pico, two relief columns without a crochet, repeat 4 times, three relief columns without a crochet.

We do not break the thread, we pass to the next motive . We start the work as follows (see the big diagram):

1st row: 12 air loops, then fasten this chain with a column without a crochet into the second picot of the previous motive (see diagram). The remaining rows are knitted similarly to the first motif. After completing 5 petals, the thread is cut off, the work is finished, the central motif is ready

Getting Started: 1st starting row: Knit a chain of 12 aerial loops. at once make a reservation, I reduce it for the very first motive to 10 aircraft loops, because the first row of the initial motive turns slightly rougher than the others, and I wanted it a little is gathered additionally.

2nd number: 1 = airbag lifting loop without the pillar 1 sc 17 sc columns without a chain of 12 air loop.

Third row: an air lift loop = 1 sc without the pillar 17 relief columns without sc (we provyazyvaem without regular columns for sc the rear wall of the column, without sc of the previous row).

4th row: air lift loop = 1 sc without the pillar, relief column, without sc, (*) the relief column, without sc, three air loop, without sc relief column to the same base loop – turned pico, two relief columns, without sc, repeat 4 times, three relief column, without sc. The thread does not break, go to the next tune .

Getting started as follows (see scheme larger.): 1st row 12 air loop, then this chain prikleplyaem column without nakida second pico previous motif (see diagram.). The remaining rows of knit similar to the first motive. After completing 5 petals thread breaks, the work is completed, the central motif is ready.

If you are good at reading charts, here you go!

Now we start to build our napkin first layer of circumferential rows (by clicking circuit increases to its print hover your mouse over the image and press the right mouse button. In the pop-up menu, select “open in new window”. The photo opens in a separate window, click on it once again, that it is opened in full size Then you can save it or print).: Good luck, and I went to a new level “sloenosti”, in the next stage will be to knit lace tape and another portion of the circular rows with knobs.

That’s how I got the previous stage with ribbon lace, and in the second photo you see already ready the next layer, the scheme of which is shown below (photos and scheme by click increase):

 

After that, another layer of ribbon lace is knitted according to the already published scheme , only the motives will be 2 times larger: 72.

As a result, you will get a big napkin (it increases by click):

I think Daria Nassiboulina is a genius! I ‘liked’ her FB page. I sent a note letting her know that I was making this post and hoped she would be OK with all the links to her page and pattern.

Just a side note: I have never crocheted anything more beautiful or challenging. Be still my heart.
