Miniature Doily, My Free Pattern

Here in California, the weather is still summer like, and my roses are still in bloom. 

I've been working on some fall/winter crochet projects, but I still enjoy making doilies and photographing romantic summer vignettes. 

This doily is my own creation. It measures only 4.5 inches across, and has only seven rounds. I used some leftover crochet thread size ten, and 1.25 mm steel hook.

The doily is so small that it can be used as a bookmark, or maybe as a coaster. 

Ch 9, join in ring with sl st.

Round 1: ch 1, 16 sc in ring; join with sl st to 1st sc.

Round 2: ch 6, *skip next sc, dc in next sc, ch 3* around; join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch-6.

Round 3: *(sc, hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, sc) all in next ch-3 space* around; join with sl st to 1st sc.

Round 4: sl st to tr, ch 7, *sc in next tr, ch 7* around; join with sl st to 1st sc.

Round 5: *(sc, hdc, 2 dc, 2 tr, dtr, 2 tr, 2 dc, hdc, sc) all in next ch-7 space* around; join with sl st to 1st sc.

Round 6: sl st to dtr, ch 13, *sc in next dtr, ch 13* around; join with sl st to 1st sc.

Round 7: *ch 6, in 7th ch of next ch-13 make: (tr3tog, ch 4, sl st in 3rd ch from hook (picot made), ch 2, tr3tog), ch 6, sc in next sc* around; join with sl st. Fasten off.

  2. Hi Olga,
    How nice to still have warm weather. Here in the east it's cold now. I love your rose and the pretty doily you have made. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  3. Very pretty...thinner thread and smaller hook would make a wonderful crazy quilt motiff too!

  4. Muy lindo gracias por compartirlo, saludos

  8. Very pretty Olga! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

  9. Thank you for sharing all these lovely patterns! I'm thinking of using this one with a regular yarn to make a little patchwork afghan...we'll see if it works.

    I do think there might be a typo, in Round 1-- I think it's 16 sc instead of 26 in the round.

    Thanks again!!

    1. Hi Katie, yes, that was a typo. Thank you so much for pointing it out. I fixed it now.
      I'd be glad to know if this pattern will work out for your patchwork afghan.
      Happy crocheting ;)

  10. Hello! I am new to your blog and I absolutely love it! May I ask how would you join these motifs together? Is join as you go the best way to join?

  11. Hi Olga ... I just came upon this pattern & have already completed this sweet doily in lavender using a valentine variegated for the final round for the perfect finish! Mine is done with the chunky cotton yarn with an H crochet hook. Turned out beautiful!
    Thank you for sharing your design!
