More than a crochet doily, this piece was created in memory of my mom who passed on January 30, 2010. Incorporating mom's favorite stitches, this doily boasts pineapples and roses like you've never seen before. Front post stitches add texture and character that gives way to a lattice-like, arbor feel - perfect for tucking in rosebuds and roses. 50% of the proceeds from this doily will go to Alzheimer's research.
100% cotton thread, size 10
Steel crochet hook size 8 (1.50 mm)

I enjoyed making each of them, but especially enjoyed making moms rose lattice doily. I love the way you did the lattice part. Thanks again for all the great patterns, I so enjoy being part of your crochet world."

My mom taught me to crochet when I was a just a kid and I know if she were still here today she'd love your patterns too. I'm a leftie and have to say in all the years I've been crocheting the detail in each step as you proceed with your pattern seems so simple it's relaxing."
