This will look familiar to my readers- but I have remade the Nosegay Doily for our kitchen. This time, it is much, much smaller.
I will go ahead and answer the first question: Didn’t I just see a rug that you made based off this pattern?
Yes- however I made it out of acrylic and turns out that just isn’t a great material for a rug. Too soft, doesn’t hold shape, slipped all over the place, etc. So it was frogged and you will see the re-incarnation of that yarn later.
For now though, is this doily. I made it using a size ridiculously small crochet hook (2.1mm for those who may actually care about details like that) and size 10 crochet thread by Red Heart in, well, red. Apparently I was bound and determined to make this pattern for the kitchen, and make it red.
Starting out, I was worried that because I was playing with (what felt like) thread and a tiny little twig that there was no way this would be big enough.
This thing takes up approximately 50% of my table. And took 2 and 1/2 skeins of the crochet thread. And I was sooooo ready to be done.
Although it only took me two weeks from cast on to cast off it felt a lot longer.
I blocked it by spraying it with some spray starch and ironed it with no steam. Worked really well and I really like it. And I think I am finally done with this pattern. Although I recommend it entirely- it is actually quite a boring pattern and the best part was the outside edging that looks way more tedious and complicated than it actually was.
And yeah, I have a turquoise candelabra on our table. Why wouldn’t I?
Any other doily makers out there?
