Is it a coily ? Is it a doaster?

Made a new round thing! Dont know what to call it. According to a recent discusion on HBT it would appear to be toobig for a coaster ot too small for a doily!!

Just spent 2 hours writing out pattern and adding photo, previewed it and guess what. All gone. not happy I hate this blogger thing. unwieldy What You See is Certainly NOT What You Get.

Have to keep regigging it.

Pattern follows. I havn't put when to reverse work or not to as I had trouble working it out at the time. May come back to this, as I think it may expand. However, I have 2 difficulties.

1 Any bigger than this and I can't work out how to balance the pattern, stitch count etc. and literealy use miles of thread doing it.

2 Still can't get my head round hiding ends other than cut and tie.
