“Filigrane” (“Filigree”)

The original instructions call for Size 20 crochet thread, and needles “Size 2” which in my instructions I translate to 1.25 mm or US Size 0000. Have knitted with Size 000, so am hoping my guesstimate is correct. Also, I imagine this doily would look great in 2, 3 or even 4 colors. BTW, couldn’t find this pattern on Ravelry. The source is Beyer’s Handarbeitsblätter – Kunststricken – Blatt 305. Am glad a friend sent it to me more than a decade ago.

Finally, have retrieved a bunch of magazines from storage, so more will get published between my design adaptation efforts.
