A ‘Splendid’ Doily!

Hi !!

I made this Patricia Kristoffersen doily couple of weeks back . I did not do any washing or blocking as the thread was firm with this design . This is made with Anchor red heart size 20 thread . I have used this thread for the first time and I would say it is cost effective and good quality thread . It is cheaper than the regular Anchor size 20 thread and comes in 100 grams ball.

This doily, named as 'Splendid', measures 10 inches across and is done with 1.25 mm hook. The pattern is free and available at http://www.pkcrochet.com/pkcrochet-download.html . The design of a doily is more clearly visible when it is done in white or single colour but my daughter likes in various colors so I try to make accordingly :)

My next project with local thread is a bit thread-messy . It doesn't lay flat :( I love the lustrous colors of these threads :) They are used for embroidery . I guess I might have to attach it onto something .





Have a happy week ahead !

  21. Oh! I checked it now after seeing your comment. Looks like the pattern is no longer available on the home page too. Unfortunately, I did not save the pattern and used to open the link every time:( also, earlier she used to sell PDF patterns but now even those are not available at her home page.
