Crocus Doily

I just luv making this piece.

It's one of the few pieces I've made more than once and will probably make again. The pattern and the pattern repeats are so incredibly simple for such a complex looking doily.

I made this with my Bates 6 steel hook and #10 thread.
It measures 18 1/2 inches across.

This pattern is so incredible. This is the doily towel dried and laid out. It's still damp. It doesn't need pins, it doesn't need ironing, it just lays smooth.

I made this to go with a vintage lamp my husband fell in love with. I can't wait to finish getting everything unpacked from our trip so I can put them out together!

A close up view.
You can find the pattern here at the Coats and Clark site.



  1. I absolutely love this!! I printed the pattern so I can make one or two and see if I can still hold a small crochet hook. :-)

  2. Gorgeous...I will definitely have to make one!

  3. That doily is beautiful! I love the second picture you took of just one flower repeat. That is a gorgeous doily pattern!
