Centrino was originally released as the September 2009 Year of Lace design.   Centrino is a giant doily, based on a few vintage patterns I found and adore!  I’m not a doily person, neither lacey nor frilly, but the lure to begin something that starts out quite wee and grows into an abundant orb could not be refused.  

This project is addictive from start to finish. I loved the simple act of working around, and around, slowly building out.  The pattern shifts slightly but not so drastically that you are forced to hide away to “learn” your next repeat.  

Choose a yarn that you can get gauge with... if you choose a light fingering like in the red version your Centrino will be more open and airy.  If you choose a sport weight, like the cream version, your Centrino will be warmer, and more "blanket" like!
