Jan Stawasz Moje Robotki 8/2007 Huge Doily tat-along Row 1

I ordered some Coats Aida 10 Ecru and a copy of Moje Robotki 8/2007 which contains a Large Doily designed by Jan Stawasz. and have shown Row I.

The thread is actually a nice creamy color and when compared to Lizbeth 10 it is slightly thinner. I am using a Starlit and Moonlit shuttle as they hold a lot of thread.

I am trying to do it "Jan's" way which has the picots on a ds as opposed to between. This is a new way of tatting for me and I am taking it slow. The doily is slightly cupped but I think if I dampen it this will disappear. I will just put it in a heavy book overnight.

I am not afraid of a large doily, the tablecloth in the header measures about 4 feet by 5 feet and I crochet it square by square about 35 years ago, now I wish I kept better track of my projects.

 If you get this post twice, sorry, had some issues with blogger on my smart phone and  this post was deleted.


  1. Welcome to the tat-along, I eagerly await more photos of yours and others progress. Unlike you, I AM scared of such a large undertaking, though I am plodding forward anyways :)

  2. I still consider myself a new tatter, its been just over a year and already my fourth tat-along. Don't be afraid just one step at a time and before you know it you are done. Actually because the later rows are so long the repeats get easier and easier.

  3. Yay! I'm so glad we are all doing this together - it certainly helps me to keep going...
