Tiny Tops

Six and a half years ago, I made some bookmarks with small net circles above a rectangle of netting. I called one of them Tops because the decrease stitch reminded me of a spinning top. This was one tiny doily that did not need changing.


Remember to tie a connecting knot (CK) at the end of each round to form the last loop of that round.

Regular Center

Round 1
mesh stick: 3/8”
Form a grommet with 24 loops, the last one tied by hand with a connecting knot (CK). (24 loops in the round)

Rounds 2-3
mesh stick: #3 knitting needle
Net 1 knot in each loop. (24 loops in each round)

Tops Decrease Stitch

Round 4
mesh stick: 3/8”
Net 1 knot in each loop. (24 loops in each round)

Round 5
mesh stick: 3/8”
Without mesh stick, net together the loop formed by the CK and the loop to the right of the CK.  Now with the mesh stick, * net 2 loops together*; repeat from * to *.  (12 loops in the round)
