Doily of the Week #24: Crocus Doily


crocus doily





I think this is one of the most gorgeous doilies I’ve ever made! Measuring almost twenty inches in diameter, this big doily will make a perfect centerpiece on a large dining table. It will also look charming on a small side table.

I used size ten cotton thread in ecru color. The pattern, which has 25 rounds, is not an easy one; yet it is not extremely difficult. I enjoyed making this doily especially once the crocuses began to appear.

I found the free pattern at Coats & Clark website (see the link below).

If you really love this crocus doily, make sure to come back to Lacy Crochet blog later this month as I am going to announce a giveaway for it.

  12. Beautiful doily!! I'll have to try this soon. I just finished the "Doves in Flight" doily. It was fun to make, yet, it was one the largest project I've made thus far in doilies. I have a pic of it on my blog if you'd like to see it. Also, thanks so much for the baby blanket pattern!! Love your creations!
