Small Pink Doily, My Free Pattern



I’m trying my hand at designing doilies again. After all, that's my biggest crochet passion, which started this blog. 

Here is what I came up with!




This doily measures 7 inches (almost 18 cm) in diameter. I used pink crochet cotton thread size 10, and steel hook size 4 (1.25 mm).

I didn’t have anyone to test the pattern, so if you see any mistakes or something doesn’t make sense, please let me know. Thank you.

  15. Thanks for a great pattern :-) This is my first time making a doily. Just to clarify, on round 2, there will be 9 ch 2 spaces with 3 dc in each and 1 ch 2 space with 2 dc in it. Is that right? Or should there be 3 dc in all 10 ch 2 spaces?

    1. I had the same question. The picture seems to show one with just 2 dc but I've never seenthat in a pattern so I added a dc in the first ch 2 space and it worked fine.

    2. Yes, there should be 3 dc in all 10 ch-2 spaces to keep the symmetry. It was my mistake.
