Mystery Doily - Patty Dowden




A Mystery Doily to Intrigue the Tatter

More than a decade ago I rescued this doily from a bin at an antique store. I was immediately intrigued by it. You will note that it is not a regular pattern tatted row after row in a circular manner. At first I tried to write the pattern but without success. My last try had it going in a serpentine fashion. But I got lost in the maze. So I published the doily online and invited tatters from the Online Tatting Class to help solve the problem.

At that time, several tatters came up with solutions. Vickie Reynolds' solution is still posted online: (http://www.georgiaseitz.com/mystery/reynolds2.html)




Recently, this mysterious doily was rediscovered on Intatters and caused a commotion. I was so pleased to know that even after more than a decade this doily is still being studied and worked by tatters. Patty Dowden of the Intatters discussion group on this doily, has prepared a new set of diagrams and directions for it. Please enjoy!!!
