Comments: This little doily can be customized at your pleasure; for example, all of you that asked me for a name doily, can use this pattern in the following way; crochet following diagram rows 1..10, then start crocheting your name and finish in a symmetric way. It will result in a big gift runner! The sample for this doily is crocheted with FILET #1
