The pattern I used for this doily can be found in "Easy Tatting" by Rozella F. Linden. I found it a little confusing in the beginning as it refers you to about 3 different pattern pages. The first round being really simple of course. I don't why I had such a problem on the second round, could be because I had a lot of distractions too (1 1/2 yr old grand daughter).The variegated thread is J.P. Coats Cotton Knit-Cro-Sheen Color # 165 Pastels, and green is Aunt Lydia's Size 10 Color # 154 Frosty Green. I would liked to have used a darker green, but just didn't have one. But I think I'll see if I can find some, (if nothing else in my 'Unidentified' threads) and do another using a darker green. I really do LOVE the way the colors turned out on this though, especially the pastels! Once started it actually does go really fast.
