To watch this flower bloom, there is no need to get your hands dirty! Rather, gather some crochet cotton in various colors and start crocheting! A new heirloom will be created! Spectacular!
Bruce picked this crochet doily pattern for you, as he has with several patterns over the last couple of days, because I have been under the weather. He’s a keeper that’s for sure! Any man who encourages my “yarn habit”, and tolerates the huge rubbermaid totes/tubs of yarn filling the bedroom, the living room and even literally filling one full room downstairs known as the “wool room”, is a treasure all in itself! I missed you guys though, so here I am!
This doily looks like a pretty straightforward mesh stitch pattern, so I have complete confidence that you will be able to whip up a beautiful and delicate Dahlia Doily as a gift for someone special, or just to grace your own home!
If you are not sure you want to crochet with something as thin as crochet cotton and an itty bitty hook, consider using a thicker yarn and larger hook, and turn the doily into one of those fancy circular shawls. You would just need to extend the mesh stitches around and around, until it is the right size for you to begin the edging! If you do this, or make the regular doily, I would love to see them! Post pictures please!!
Above all, have fun with it!
