Turkey Tracks Doily: A Free Crochet Pattern for You

I want to show my gratitude to all of you this Thanksgiving by sharing with you  this doily pattern. It went through many changes while I was designing it. At first, it was supposed to have rounds of little leaves, but somehow the leaves got turned into turkey tracks. Then I made it in two different color combinations and couldn't decide which I liked better, so I decided to include them both.
I hope you will enjoy the pattern, and I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with love and many blessings!
