With a size 7 steel crochet hook: single crochet through 3 stitches, chain 9, then single crochet through next 4 stitches, chain 9, (3x single crochet through next 3 stitches, chain 9) single crochet through next 4 stitches.
Repeat this process 5 more times until all stitches are off your needles.
Slip stitch the last chain 9 into the first 3 stitches. Then for easier stretching I usually slip stitch up to the center of the first loop, single crochet in the middle of this loop, chain 9, single crochet into next loop and continue like that until the end, then fasten off. This gives you a centered loop right over the tip of each leaf. Makes it a lot easier to stretch even.
Using size 30 cotton and #2 needles this will stretch to a 10" round, very lacy doily.
