Red Doily for Valentine's Day, Free Vintage Pattern







Have you done any Valentine's Day crochet projects? 

I've done one so far - this red doily. I already have a collection of Valentine's Day doilies, but I couldn't help and make one more.

This was a vintage pattern originally called Sundial Doily, from Pineapple Pageant Book No. 252, by the Spool Cotton Company, 1948 


I like this doily, but I'm not very happy with my thread choice. Instead of cotton thread, I used acrylic. This doily is a bit too soft for my liking. I prefer crisp and starched doilies.

My doily came out quite big, 20 inches in diameter.

I post the pattern bellow exactly as it appears in the original publication. 




Starting at center ch 16. Join with sl st to form ring. 

1st rnd: Ch 3, 31 dc in ring. Join.

5th rnd:Sc in same place as sl st, * ch 3, skip 1 dc, sc in next dc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, sl st in first sc. 

6th rnd: Sl st in next ch, sc in loop, ch 7, * tr in next loop, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join last ch 3 to 4th ch of ch-7. 

7th rnd: Sl st in next ch, sc in same sp, * ch 4, sc in next sp. Repeat from * around. Join.
