This doily may be made as large as desired by adding more rows and increasing the number of ch st between each s c, as required. The center motif may also be enlarged by increasing the number of rnds, and in each rnd adding 2 d c to each of the 4 sections as in preceding rnds. The last or outside rnd, of course, should contain the p.
