As part of the Facebook Group, Designers Potpourri, I’m working a doily CAL for April! I loved designing this pineapple, floral doily that’s perfect for spring. I think it would make a lovely gift for mom, grandmother, aunt, sister, or someone special in your life. It’s a lovely way to say “thank you!” A gift from the hands and love from the heart – nothing as previous as giving of oneself. Part 4 (the last section) is now posted! I hope you’ve enjoyed the CAL!
|Medium:||350-yd ball 100% cotton thread size 10 (white)|
150-yds 100% cotton thread size 10 in ea ( sage, wood violet & orchid pink)
|Hook:||Steel size 8 (1.50 mm)||Finished Size:||18″ dia|
|Gauge:||2 rows dc = 1/2″|
These products work well for this project!
- This CAL will be four (4) weeks long.
- Each section or part of the doily will be introduced on this page only
- Each part will be delivered on Monday morning
- Download links for each section published will appear further down the post
- Share and display your WIPS (works in progress) using the link party below for the appropriate week!
Most any size 10 thread will do. I used Aunt Lydia’s crochet thread. Not all size 10 threads are the exact same size. Some are coarser, some are finer. Be sure to check your gauge and change hook size as needed. If you’d like to work in your favorite hook size and brand, it may effect the finished size of the doily.
Use the colors that you love! I chose the colors I did primarily because they were what I had in stock. If you opt to use one color think about using different shades of the same color; i.e. light pink and dark pink.
While the instructions given provide the doily in its entirety, I have included notes where to stop work for coasters and other sized doilies. The options are almost limitless! I have included photos below for where you can stop for various projects in addition to the doily in its entirety to create sets, or in place of the full doily.
