Here is a photo of the dolly as made according to the pattern found on the above link (I did not make this one ..... it is a photo from the website referenced above):
I like the pattern and wanted a set for my large coffee table. So here is the variation I made using the above pattern as my inspiration:
Using standard crochet thread (Aunt Lydia's size 10) and a size 7 metal crochet needle, I started out with the spoke pattern but at the end of the flat-topped spoked, I continued, using a decreasing dc and turned the flat-ended spokes into points. I continued with the "dc-ch3" but didn't want just a lot of blank space, so I added the mini-pineapples in the (what I call the) outfield. The green trim near the outer edge is when I went back to the original pattern and finished it up.
Like many of my projects, this was a "make it up as you go". One day I just HAVE to remember to write down what I'm doing as I do it!
A large glass candle display will sit in the center of this. I plan to make four or six small ones to use as coasters. Photos to follow, of course!
Maybe I'll crochet a basket out of seafoam green bedsheet strips to keep the coasters in.
