I must admit that at the beginning of my crochet adventure I had never thought that I would ever make any doily. I thought that they are outdated and boring. I wanted to make colorful, interesting and modern stuff. And I did make many colorful, interesting and modern crochet items. But then, somehow, I made my first doily. It was colorful, interesting and modern. And I really enjoyed making it!
So, after that first enjoyable experience, I changed my mind about crocheting doilies, and made many more colorful and fun doilies. I always followed somebody else’s pattern. But, recently, I wanted to make a lacy square for the scarf I had in my mind. Although, I tried, and tried, and tried some more to do that, I always ended up with a circle, not a square.
Then, it came to my mind that it might be a simple little doily. Why not? And my very first doily pattern was born! Unexpectedly and unplanned. Still, I think it’s a great addition to my existing pattern collection.
It’s a beginner friendly pattern, and probably the ideal crochet project for someone who is inexperienced, but would like to make something useful and beautiful, and to see the results quickly. Because, this is very simple and easy crochet project. You could probably make several doilies during a weekend, or even during an afternoon, if you’re a little more experienced crocheter.
For each of these doilies I used a thin, 100% cotton thread for doilies, 530m/100g – and you would need approximately 10 g of the main color for one doily. I used 2mm crochet hook which is size B1 in the US, and size 14 in the UK.
The pattern is written in English using both US and UK crochet terminology.
Like all my patterns, this one is also very detailed (as you can see in the picture above), with lots of step-by-step pictures.
The Follow Me Doily pattern is now available for purchase for only $3.97 in Dada’s place shop, here (payment options: Credit card and PayPal)
Have a nice and creative week and happy crocheting!
