In continuation of the royal series free pattern this week we have yet another mini motif, the lace bordering is an inspiration to the earlier week design. Love the delicate border of this doily. This is a beginner’s project with simple instruction. This is a free pattern, use yarn of your choice.
This pretty motif is worked in one colors. It is crocheted in the round starting in the center with the flower and working outward from there. This is an easy crochet project that works up quickly.
Supply List for Royal Motif
- Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can use just about any size fiber to make this project. We have used Anchor Size 10 Tread Color Used is Purple
- Crochet Hook Size: To crochet the flower, we used a size I.75 mm steel crochet hook.
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
The motif measures about 10 inches in size. The sizes will vary based on supplies used and other factors.
Using the Lacy Doily–
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.
