All doilies were crocheted from patterns... I didn't design any of these.

Another one of these. This is probably my favorite pattern, since it goes quickly and isn't annoying.

Two strands of thin thread. This picture doesn't do it justice. 11 inches across.

Yay, lacy doilies finally! I made this with two strands of quilting thread crocheted together, one solid blue thread, and one thread that changes color from navy to light blue and back. I found this pattern on the web, dated 1951. I think it's absolutely gorgeous in the middle, however, I think the border (10 ch loops) is totally stupid, and some of the gaps were the wrong size, so I'm going to rewrite the pattern and try it again sometime. 8 inches across.

I've done this one before in ecru.

This one may look the same as the one immediately following, but it is made of a higher quality thread. These are a pair for our end tables in the livingroom.
