Doilies are simple and fun crochet projects. Great for gifting and adding some vintage looks to your own homes. Multiple use of these crochet dollies like palce it under a flower vase, use as a coaster, frame it. The list is endless.
If you want to give your doilies a more modern look, use brightly colored yarn or multi-colored yarn to create a look that’s fun and funky!
Supply List for Floral Lace Mini Doily:
- Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can use just about any size fiber to make this project. We have used Anchor Size 10
- Crochet Hook Size: To crochet the flower, we used a size I.25mm crochet hook.
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
The flower measures about 6.0 inches in diameter. Doilie sizes will vary based on supplies used and other factors.
Using the Lacy Motif –
Unlike most crochet patterns, this pattern has no gauge, no thread requirement and no hook sizes.
That’s because you can vary the size and appearance of each motif to fit the needs of your project. If the motif is for a bedspread, you could choose size 5 cotton thread and an appropriate hook, the same motif could be made with size 10 cotton thread and a similar hook for a doily.
When choosing the thread and hook for your project experiment with a variety of threads to achieve the appearance and texture that pleases you.
