Cats Playing Ball Filet Chart Curtain Doily

Originally published in1922 by The Queenslander, this pattern had no actual chart, but a photograph of the filet with row by row counts for a turn-corner and insertion lace. I re-charted the main cats, each is a mirror image.
 The original pattern was written in British terms. Ravelry is hosting the original pattern also under “Cat and Ball Insertion”. I simplified the image so that anyone can make it. I also used the extended double crochet stitch, but feel free to use a double or treble if you like.
