My first doily

I finally decided to try a doily pattern. The one I chose was doily number 7274 from the Free Vintage Crochet site. This was done in size 10 thread with a 2.0 mm hook. It looks a little wonky so I may try blocking tomorrow. It took about 4 days to complete, not working more that a couple hours at a time.
I enjoyed making this and have already picked out my next doily pattern and thread. This one has pineapples which will be another first. Hope to have an update with a pic on that one soon.


  1. Your first one!?! And it only took 4 days....Wow. That is amazing because this turned out so delicate & beautiful!

    Stunning job!

  2. oh no !!!

    what a great job !

  3. Yours first doily? You have done a good job, it' s really elegant :)

  4. Beautiful job! I haven't had the courage to try making doilies yet. I shy away from crocheting with thread. You did a wonderful job! Keep up the good work!
