  1. I just made this and put it on my blog. I am very new to crochet and have been looking for an easy pattern. This was it. I didn’t do the picots and I ran out of yarn on the last row but I was just practicing and it turned out lovely. The next ones I make with the proper materials will be gifts. Thanks for a great, beginner pattern to something that I think is a lost art. I am very interested in learning more. Thanks!

  2. I liked this pattern. It was easy to follow for my first doily. Tho I did add 2 additional sc for each of the loops to make them a bit fuller looking. I also did 3 piccot on each loop for the last round. Thank you for sharing this!

  3. http://flic.kr/p/bLEECg That link contains a picture of the doily I crocheted from your pattern. Thank you so much!! It is so cute! I did not include the cluster stitches, as I decided later to not make the last round because I already liked the size it was, but next time I make it, I will definitely plan ahead better. Thanks again, hope you like the photo!!


  4. Easy instructions. Did you starch your finished doily?

  5. First time trying to make a doily. After hours of trying to find something that either I could see or that I could understand, I found this site and so far so good! I love it. Thank you so much!

  6. Also, how do you keep the edges from rolling in? I’m crocheting as loosely as I can.

  7. What is a “dbl tr”?

  8. easy to make project for beginners like me. Thank you.

  9. Easy to make but still very beautiful! It’s perfect for someone like me who’s never made a doily before.

  10. easy for beginner and quite stunning
