It's really pretty! What kind of handles did you use?

that's beautiful! What pattern did you use?

Any suggestions of doily books?

Sorry, girly, I don't have any suggestions. I only own one! But I bet you could find a simple FREE pattern online. That way you could practice and see if you like making doilies before buying a book.

Well I've bought the beads and ordered the yarn. Hopefully it will get here soon because I'm anxious to get started.

baast yours looks great!

I'm very interested! However, I don't have the yarn or the beads. I just printed the pattern though. It may be a little bit before I can start, because I'll probably have to order the yarn.

Listener15 you should go for it! I didn't know anything about making doilies until I decided to take the plunge and figure it out. It seems really overwhelming at first BUT if you can take it just one round at a time, you can do it. Good luck!  Grin

I've decided scarves are perfect knitting. You can try out all different pattern/stitches and not be committed to them for long periods of time.

I completely agree! Thanks for sharing the link - I've never seen this pattern before. You did a great job and the color you picked is gorgeous!

Well I googled "bullion stitch" and I definitely didn't do that. I loved it though! It's really pretty...

The part that looks like that stitch was actually front-post treble crochets into 2 rows below...I'm not sure if I described that right. For example, if you're on Row 13, you would do the front-post treble crochets into the 11th row stitches.

Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone!

The pattern is from a book called Extra-Special Doilies. It's a Leisure Arts publication. I bought it, got it home, and then realized that all the patterns are labeled as being for the experienced crocheter. I've only  been crocheting for about a year, but I decided that all these doilies were just gorgeous and that I'd look up the stitches as I got to them.

Rachelofthree I'm not familiar with the bullion stitch. I'm going to have to Google it! I know that the pattern never said "bullion stitch" though.

And this doily took me maybe 5 days. HOWEVER that's only because I had a friend in town that was visiting me for 3 days. At night, we sat around and did a lot of knitting and crocheting while watching TV. Also, I killed my right hand because I guess I was gripping the hook so tightly and for so long each night. I had to take a 2-day break from knitting/crocheting after finishing this doily!

Okay, so this is the second doily I've made. I love it! Some parts are kind of "lifted up" (for lack of a better phrase/word). I tried to capture that on my camera, but wasn't totally successful. Hopefully you can tell though. Thanks for looking!

The 1st pic shows the true color of the thread.

You can kind of see the little fan-shaped areas that are "lifted up" on this 2nd pic
