I really like doilies.
This is the newest one I've made.
I bought the magazine just for this pattern, I loved the hearts that appear towards the edge :)
I like making doilies so much that I don't even mind working in the round to make one...something that I always used to avoid.
So many people seem to dislike them but I see so many beautiful designs out there I can't help but love them. There are lots of wonderful vintage patterns you can find free online and I love to buy magazines with doily patterns, even if I never make them, just to look at them. Do you do that too, or is it just me? ;)
Do you prefer to work from charts or a written pattern? Here in Spain, most crochet magazine have charts alongside the written pattern. When working in the round, I prefer charts, they are easier for me to follow and in my case they leave less room for misunderstandings.
I worked on this doily under my afghan from last year
When it's cold out is so nice to be at home, warm and crocheting :)
I made this doily with size 10 cotton crochet thread and a 1.5mm hook and this is the perfect project to show why I love to block my crochet work:
I'm thinking of taking this doily and turning it into a cushion cover.
I'd use some upcycled fabric and sew the doily on to one of the side. Do you think it's a good idea?
Have a wonderful day!
