You can take any doily pattern and work it in size 3.

I found this doily pattern that uses Size 3 thread.

You could probably even use this. I use a smaller hook for sock yarn then size 3 thread, but it's still doable.

When I make size 3 thread doilies, I just use regular doily patterns. Sometimes coaster patterns. I then adapt to fit. Some doily patterns with long chains won't work, but you could add a stitch between them to make them longer. With size 3 thread, that would be one long hole. If you want that, it's fine. That's up to you. If the chain is too long to fit on the size 3 thread (happens) I just do a shorter chain, for example, in stead of ch 5 I do a ch-3 or even a ch-4. I may have to frog but it can work out fine.

Not a doily, but a doily bowl
