Lil Butterfly Small Doily or Coaster - Filet

This pattern is my original design for “Sweet Little Butterfly” Doily in filet crochet. When making it using size #10 thread and a size #7 hook, it should measure 6.4” wide X 7.0” tall when finished.

Using my chart above and starting at the bottom right corner of the pattern, chain 85. Chain an additional 3 which will count as the first double crochet for the first row. Double crochet in the 5th chain from the hook. Double crochet in the next 2 chains which will complete the bottom right solid square of the pattern. Continue following pattern for the first row reading pattern right to left. After completing the first row, chain 3 to turn to start the next row. Continue following the pattern until all the rows are complete. At the end of row 28, fasten off. Starch and block as desired.

That's a cute little butterfly. Filet crochet is one thing I'd like to learn to do.
