My sister-in-law is looking for a round doily pattern that is at least 34" in diameter and made with size 10 thread.  We tried tonight to do web searches but had little success.  She suggested that I ask my friends on my craft group (that's all of you!) and see if anyone could find something for her.

So, if you know of a pattern on the web that fits this description, please post the address here.

THANKS!!!!!!

hmm.. You could always find a pattern for a smaller doily and extend the motif to make it as large as you want.

Have you checked websites like crochetpatterncentr al.com yet?

Yeah, we have but there's a qazillion doily and table cloth patterns and we didn't want to look through each one - I thought maybe someone would know of a pattern and save us some time.

I'm fairly certain this is the pattern I used to make my table topper. I am at work so I'd have to go home and dig through a pile of printoffs LOL

But, I did it in #10 thread, in black, and it was large enough to go over the top of my table (the same table pictured in the Annie's Attic photo) and extend a few inches all around.

34" is really massive, my great granny used to spend a lot of time crocheting really large doilies like those, I really should try and find her patterns.

I hope you can post pictures when you are done your doily Smiley!

Well, three feet IS a really huge doily, but size 10 thread?  Shouldn't have any trouble making a three foot doily in size ten thread, just by using a smaller pattern in smaller thread.  I suppose you'd have to work a few rows of the center to maybe see how the ratio worked out, but really, size 10 is fairly large for a doily, isn't it?

Edited to add:  Oh... also, look through tablecloth patterns.  At that size, a smaller round tablecloth pattern might be easier to find than a doily pattern, and basically a lot of round crocheted tableclothes ARE just bigger doilies.

Between my sister-in-law and myself we have made many, many doilies and we've never used anything but size 10 for them.

Wow.  Most of the doily patterns i have call for size 30, but they're all old patterns.  Not being a doily person myself, I guess I just didn't really look that close at newer patterns.
