I'm guessing it would be quite difficult to have neat results on such a small scale. Both of the items I've made have looked quite sloppy for the first few rows, but as they get bigger, the inconsistencies become less obvious.

Your first attempt came out just lovely!

Fret not, with a steel hook and size 20 thread the design will work out the size given in the pattern.

By George, I think you've got it

Think about this, too: a fairly "solid" (i.e. not too many big holes) doily makes a beautiful afghan if you work it in worsted. Half of a round doily makes a really pretty shawl, too.

Ditto! Your first attempt looks much better than ANY of my attempts so far! LOL The color is lovely, too. I just made two hemp chokers from Mary Jane Hall's, Crochet that Fits. I had a heck of a time crocheting with the 1.9 mm hook I was using. I can't even imagine using some of the crochet thread that I see at the craft stores! I think you would need bionic vision just to see the stitches! LOL
