Netted Doily with Linen Center from Tatting and Netting

Here is another edge that had embroidery on it in the book.  I chose to show just the netting.
The Netted Doily with Linen Center on page 136 of Tatting and Netting, does not tell the size of the cloth to be used in the center of this doily.  The instructions for the cloth-centered doilies on page 130 say to use a 7" diameter circle.  The number of knots to start with are the same as for this doily.

If I were to use this edge, I would make sure that the last row is correctly centered over the rows before it, especially where the chain of increases is concerned.
