Aunt Lydia's Thread Size 3 Small Doily, Free Crochet Pattern by Olga Poltava




Today I have a new doily pattern to share! 

This is a doily that would be very suitable for beginners. First of all, it's a very simple design and there are only 14 rounds in the pattern. 

It is made with a bigger size hook (D/3, 3.25 mm) and crochet cotton thread size 3, which should be more comfortable to work with for beginners (rather than the traditional thread size 10). 



I love the way my doily turned out. Simple, but lovely. 

It fits my fruit basket perfectly!

Pineapple Bouquet Doily, New Crochet Pattern



The year 2018 is going to be a year of doilies for me! I am so hooked on making doilies! I've made a resolution to make 100 of them!

And not only I'm making them, I'm designing them myself. This is my most recent design.


There are million of pineapple doilies out there. Does the world really need yet another one? 

I think it does! 

I named my doily Pineapple Bouquet! 



It measures about 17 inches across after blocking. I used aunt Lydia's crochet cotton thread size ten and a steel hook 1.5 mm. 

The pattern is available in my shops. I'm trying to promote this new pattern, so right now it's only $2.79 








I also want to share two pictures of doilies made from my most recents patterns. They were made by Mary and Sarah from the Thread n' Doily group on Facebook. 

If you like crocheting with thread, sharing your projects, getting inspired by seeing the work of other crochet thread enthusiasts, that's definitely the place to be. It's such a friendly, warm, and supportive community. 

It gave me so much joy seeing the doilies made from my patterns!
