Romantic Doily with Hearts


It’s been only a few days since I finally packed away all my Christmas decorations. It is still a bit too early to think about spring holidays (though the weather here in California is already spring-like with the birds singing their cheerful songs and some of the trees starting to bloom!), but luckily there exists such wonderful winter holiday as Valentine's Day.




It used to be that whenever I thought about Valentine’s Day chocolate and red roses would come to my mind; but nowadays I associate Valentine’s Day with dainty hearts and cherubs.

When I came across the pattern for this big doily several weeks ago, I thought it would make a perfect Valentine’s Day crochet project.





The free pattern is from Coats Crafts, and it’s a symbol chart using UK crochet terminology. Actually, there are two patterns, and I made the smaller one.  Click here for the pattern.

  11. Pretty! Now I have to decide if it's time to print ANOTHER doily pattern or if there's too much unfinished still. =)
