Starflower mandala doily

This week I crocheted Zooty Owl's doily,
which is a coloured starflower with an amazing palet of colours.
I would not have come to the idea of mixing up all these colours myself,
but the effect is truly amazing.

You can find the pattern here, with some more amazing colour schemes.

So I digged in my box full of yarns and first started arranging the coulours.
This was already a satisfying job, because I did not only tidy up my yarns, I also realized how many nice colours I had collected in the past years.
I had to buy some blue though, because I have a tendency to buy far too much pinkish and purplish colours all the time...

Then I got hooked up but arriving at tour 10,
I was not so satisfied with the roundness of my doily. 
It did not become nice and round as I intended, not matter how I tried.

Therefore I crocheted tour 10-14 with my own stitches,
which worked out quite well.

I love it!

Do you?
