Pinwheel Doily

Untitled

You guys are in need of a doily fix aren't you?  I thought so!  Well, that's what I'm here for!

This is the Pinwheel Doily that can be found at www.jessica-tromp.nl.

I used size 10 thread and a 1.65mm hook.  After blocking, the doily was about 13.5 inches in diameter.

I think this is a great beginner doily.  The pattern is easy to follow, it is made of mostly double crochet stitches, and I think the 25 rounds work up fairly fast!  Go on, give it a try!  (Free Pinwheel Doily pattern)

I hope you all had a great weekend, and I'll see you on Tuesday!

  2. I love the movement effect of the central pin-wheel on this doily and the edging is just lovely. Beautiful work, Kate and the colour is so soft and pleasing to the eye.
    Not sure I could do that pattern though with a 1.65mm hook. If ever I did anything with such a fine hook, it would have to be something really tiny! What sort of cotton do you use? It looks like slightly shiny mercerised cotton. I know that the good quality of a cotton makes for more beautiful work.
    What are you going to do with all your beautiful doilies? Are you making them to sell?
