Doily of the Week #27

My doily post is late this week because my baby got sick last weekend. I couldn’t think of anything other than my poor child. He is better now though not completely recovered yet.

I got this doily from my mom. She doesn’t like it and was going to rip it, so she could use the thread to make something else. I didn’t want the doily to be ripped and asked her if I could have it. I have tons of my own doilies, but most of them are round ones and I liked the unusual shape of this one. Of course, my mom let me have it.

Here is what it looks like in the middle. I don’t know where the pattern came from. I suppose it’s from one of my mom’s Russian crochet magazines.


  1. What a great design, unusual shape. You have a beautiful collection of doilies. I hope your baby gets well soon.

  2. Poor little one, hope he's completely better quickly. This doily is just gorgeous. Glad you saw it before it got ripped out.

  3. I hope your child is better by now...
    I'm happy for not ripping this doilie, i've seen this stitch in modern sweaters!
