Blossom Doily Vintage Pattern




Summer is now over, but here in California it doesn't feel like it at all. The weather is still very warm, and we only had one little rain so far. I'm not in the mood for autumn projects yet; I felt like making something spring like.


The pattern for this doily is from Star Doily Book No.104 by American Thread Company, 1953.

I used different colors than in the original pattern. And I absolutely love how my doily turned out. 

Making this doily involved a lot of thread cutting and attaching, so it was a bit tedious. But the final result is well worth it!


With Shaded Yellows ch 9, join to form a ring, ch 4, 2 tr c in ring keeping last loop or each st on hook, thread over and work off all loops at one time, * ch 5, cluster st in same space (cluster st: 3 tr c in same space keeping last loop of each st on hook, thread over and work off all loops at one time), repeat from * 6 times, ch 5, join in top of 1st cluster st, cut thread.

2nd Round - Attach Green in any loop, ch 1 and work 3 s c, ch 3, 3 s c in each loop, join in 1 st s c.


3rd Round - Sl st to ch 3 loop, ch 4 (always counts as part of 1st cluster st), 2 tr c in same space keeping last loop of each st on hook, thread over and work off all loops at one time, ch 5, cluster st in same space, * ch 7, 2 cluster sts with ch 5 between in next ch 3 loop, repeat from * all around, ch 7, join in 1st cluster st, cut thread.


4th Round - Attach White in any ch 5 loop, s c in same space, * ch 7, s c in next loop, ch 7, s c in next loop, ch 7, s c in same loop, repeat from * all around ending with ch 3, tr c in 1 st s c (this brings thread in position for next round).


5th Round - 2 s c over tr c, * ch 5, 2 s c in next loop, repeat from * all around ending with ch 1, tr c in 1st s c.

6th Round - 2 s c over tr c, * ch 6, 2 s c in next loop, repeat from * all around ending with ch 2, tr c in 1 st s c.


7th Round - 2 s c over tr c, * ch 7, 2 s c in next loop, repeat from * all around ending with ch 3, tr c in 1 st s c.


8th Round - 2 s c over tr c, * ch 8, 2 s c in next loop, repeat from * all around ending with ch 3, d tr c in 1st s c.


9th Round - * Ch 9, s c in next loop, repeat from * all around, ch 9, join in d tr c, cut thread.


10th Round - Attach Green in any loop, ch 1 and work 5 s c, ch 3, 5 s c in each loop, join in 1 st s c, cut thread.


11th Round - Attach Shaded Yellows in any ch 3 loop, ch 4, cluster st in same space, * ch 4, cluster st in same space, repeat from * once, cut thread. * Skip two - ch 3 loops, attach Shaded Yellows in next loop, ch 4, cluster st in same loop, ch 4, cluster st in same space, ch 4, cluster st in same space, cut thread, repeat from * 6 times.


12th Round - Attach Green in 1st ch 3 loop after any cluster st group, s c in same space, * ch 8, s c in next ch 3 loop, ch 7, 5 s c in next loop between cluster sts, ch 3, 5 s c in next loop, ch 7, s c in next ch 3 loop, repeat from * all around ending to correspond, join in 1 st s c.


13th Round - * 5 s c in next loop, ch 3, 5 s c in same loop, 4 s c, ch 3, 4 s c in next loop, ch 5, 1 s c, ch 3, 1 s c in next ch 3 loop, ch 5, 4 s c, ch 3, 4 s c in next loop, repeat from * all around ending to correspond, join, cut thread.


14th Round - Attach White in any ch 3 loop above cluster st group, s c in same space, * ch 5, s c in next loop, ch 5, s c in next loop, ch 7, s c in next loop, ch 7, s c in next loop, * ch 5, s c in next loop, repeat from * 3 times, ch 7, s c in next loop, ch 7, s c in next loop, repeat from 1st * 6 times, ch 5, s c in next loop, ch 1, tr c in 1 st s c.


Repeat the 6th, 7th and 8th rounds once.


18th Round - 2 s c over d tr c, * ch 9, 2 s c in next loop, repeat from * all around ending with ch 4, d tr c in 1st s c.


19th and 20th Rounds - Same as 9th and 10th rounds.


21st Round - Attach Shaded Yellows in any ch 3 loop directly above the group of Shaded Yellow cluster sts of previous round and work in same manner as 11th round, but repeat from * 14 times.


22nd Round - Same as 12th round.


23rd Round - Same as 13th round.
