Doily and Coasters Set

Untitled

Are you in doily withdrawal?  If so, you can take a gander at this doily and coasters set I made for my friend's bridal shower gift!

The crochet specifics: size 10 thread, 1.5mm hook, and the pattern Round Crochet Doilie.

Using two patterns from the Japanese book Crochet Lace in Antique Style (thanks again Ale!), I made six coasters (three from each pattern) with size 10 thread and a 1.65mm hook.

I think the doily and the coasters makes a pretty cute little drink set!  I could see a cute tea pot on the doily with some matching little tea cups on the coasters...  mmmm tea...  I think I hear Earl Grey calling my name.  Coming!  Have a fabulous day my friends!

  1. What a gorgeous doily and coasters, Kate. The colour is one of my favourites too, that golden yellow. That's a wonderful gift for your friend's bridal shower! I like the shape of that last little doily with four circles. I can just see a dainty Japanese teapot on that one!

  5. These are really gorgeous. Do you block them when you're done crocheting?

    1. Yes I do! I forgot to mention that part! Yes, I pin them out with T pins, spray them with water and let them dry overnight! Easy!

  11. I want to make something like this for my niece who just purchased her first home, but I want to use thread and an F hook. Possible?

    1. I'm so sorry it's taken so long to reply!! An F hook may be too big for size 10 thread like I used... However, I have used a D hook with size 3 thread, which I thought worked pretty well! The best thing I can suggest is to just experiment with the pattern you want to use, try different hook sizes and see what you like!
      Good luck!
