Brussels Sprouts

A Brussels sprouts doily? No, not really. But Herbert Niebling’s Ranunkel reminded me of the Brussels sprouts in my garden.

The details:
  • Pattern: Ranunkel by Herbert Niebling, Kunststricken Schöne alte Blütenmuster, 40 rounds
  • Changes: Instead of K7tog, I slipped 3 stitches one at a time, k4tog, passed the 3 slipped stitches over
  • Thread: Cébélia DMC, size 30, color 799
  • Needles: US0 (2mm)
  • Finished size: approximately 9 inches diameter
Now, compare the Brussels sprouts to the petals on the ranunculus flower in the doily.
