Doilies are a great way to take time out of a busy life to get back to the soothing relaxing art of crochet!This collection of 27 doily patterns is for the intermediate level crocheter, but can also be tackled by an ambitious beginner. My goal in creating this book was to breathe life into forgotten vintage patterns from the 1930’s and 1940’s, by adapting and updating them with new colorful materials and making each pattern a user-friendly workable size. All of the doilies are worked in 14 rounds or less; depending on the size of your thread and hook, this works out to about 12” in diameter or less. This size means that these little doilies require small amounts of yarn, can be easily taken on the go, and are able to be completed in a single evening. When working on the compilation of this book, I wanted to make sure to have a variety and selection of different crochet techniques. Just to name a few: crossed stitches, the pineapple shape, working a spiral, creating petals, creating mesh, clusters and popcorns, working around loops and picots. Note: There are no charts, just photos and written directions, so you will need to have a basic knowledge of reading crochet patterns.
