You should be able to take any doily and by using worsted yarn and a large hook (maybe a K) it should work. If there's repeatable rounds all the better.

Try this pattern:

I did it awhile back using worsted weight yarn with a size 5 hook...It came out to be around 2 feet in diameter...I think I may have posted a pic of my FO here as well...It was a fun project and came out looking great...

This is probably something you might have already considered, but you can also take a doily motif and do as many squares as you want. Then sew them all together. Generally, these motifs will work in any size yarn, too.

Best of luck to you in this project.
