Seagulls play over this old fashioned ship amid ocean waves in this filet crochet pattern originally designed as a tray insert in 1927 by Carolyn Waite. Add thread rigging to the masts and banners, and you’ll have a picture ready to frame.

I first got addicted to making doilies because I could pick a pattern and just get started with any thread I had on hand. I never had to worry about gauge again or whether the item was the right size. Cool! (Insert wrong buzzer sound here…)
