Clematis

Hexagonal doily by Herbert Niebling. Several can be joined together to produce larger pieces.

Cast on 12 stitches and join in a round. Each round is six repeats of the pattern. In the swatch I have used ssk rather than k2togtbl for the left leaning decreases.

Shown with a cast-on count of 2 stitches.
