Bruce’s Tatted Doily row 3

Here’s the third installment of Bruce’s doily. Just one more row after this one!

This row is easy to tat, but looks awful before it’s blocked. The next row will hold all the clover leaf motifs together and will finish the whole doily nicely.

I used Lizbeth Autumn Spice, Color 136 in size 20.
