Thinking of Spring Doily

The holidays are behind us, but spring is still some time away. I feel like I’m ready for it though. I love it when crocuses and tulips push through the soil and start blooming.



This doily’s design reminds me of crocuses. I like how many different stitches are used in its design creating an elaborate, spring look.

The few flowers in the pictures are from my yard. The pink hydrangeas are so pale from the lack of sunshine. But white primroses are doing well in such weather.



The pattern (symbol chart) was from Coats Crafts UK (click below)


What are you crocheting and thinking of these days?
