All over the net at the moment is a doily like this one. I decided to create MY OWN VERSION.

I DID NOT .......... I REPEAT ........... I DID NOT, COPY THE FRACTAL DOILY PATTERN ON RAVELRY!!



Measures 23" X 13" at the widest points, approx.  (Straight across, not on the slant)

I used a 2mm steel hook and DMC Tradition Plus thread in White (NEARLY ALL of a 100g ball)

Stitches Used:
Ch    Chain
Dc    Double Crochet
Sl St  Slip Stitch

Ch 12 & sl st into beginning ch to form a ring. Make sure the ch aren't twisted.

Ch 3, dc 34 in ring & sl st into top of beginning ch 3.

Ch 4, (dc, in next st, ch 1) around, sl st to 3rd ch.

Ch 5, (dc, in next st, ch 2) around, sl st to 3rd ch .
