I found this pattern in Crochet Today magazine.  They showed a few in different sizes attached to a denim skirt.  It looked really cute, and I haven't made any doilies before, so...


I haven't blocked it yet, I HATE blocking!  I haven't woven in the tail either, guess what, yup, I HATE weaving in tails, too!  Grin


Excuse the yucky ruler, I just grabbed the first one I could find.

I may attach it to a pair of denim short-alls my princess has, but I'm definitely going to make some more in different sizes to attach also.
I'm sorry, I don't remember the size thread I used.  It's Aunt Lydia's.  I used a size 4/2mm hook.
Comments are always welcome, but please be gentle- I'm a doily virgin, and I've only been crocheting a few months (self-taught).

You did a really good job! I saw that pattern too and thought about making it, but I have too many projects on my plate right now. I do love crochet today though!

I say you did a very good job!

Thanks!  I ended up short one shell, but you wouldn't know unless you had read the pattern and counted them.  I want to try the tea leaf green swing top they have too, but even though I know all the stitches, it's still a little scary.  Maybe I should start with learning granny squares.

Thanks!  I strongly suggest Crochet Today!  It's not an uppity magazine.  Although there is nothing wrong with pricey, posh yarns (I love the feel), my 4 kids and tight budget do not allow for anything that costs that much.  They use normal yarns that I can find at any craft store (and sometimes even Wal-mart <gasp>).  Most of the patterns are Easy and Intermediate, and most also offer patterns written out or in chart form.  It's my favorite!
Very pretty! I love the traditional crafts.
Thank you, too!  I think I need to make a doily to send to my grandma.  She would be so proud!  She tried teaching my mom, but she never got past chains.  My mom taught me chains, but I had to learn the rest from books, and tv.
