Rosy Coaster or Doily

(click here for plain English)

Sample on left is done with size 10 thread and a size "0" hook.
Sample on right is done as patterns calls for, without contrasting border.

size '30' thread
size '8' hook

this pattern will also work well with size '10' thread and a size '0' hook
finished size with size '30' thread is nice for a coaster, with size '10' thread pattern yields a roughly 5 1/2" doily
