The Victorian Trellis Doily is an antique pattern from The Priscilla Tatting Book No. 2 (1915 - available for free as a PDF from the Antique Pattern Library, and also from Dover Books as Tatting Patterns, edited by Julia E. Sanders). Last year, or perhaps year before, a lot of members in InTatters members were tatting it and encouraging each other. Frivole blogged about hers in detail, with instructions and videos. This inspired and enabled a lot of us to follow in her footsteps. (Do a search for "Victorian Trellis" on Frivole's blog.)
I finally decided that I couldn't resist its beauty, and I started on it late last year (thread I'm using: DMC Cebelia Size 30, Ivory). Round 1 took me a long time, but the succeeding rounds have gone much faster. I'm now in Round 5. I'll probably slow down now, because I'm now onto another doily! More about that in another post.
