Hi everyone .Today I am going to share 2 new doilies i made this month.Both are from 2 different crochet magazines but i am posting their pattern in this single post.I hope you enjoy making them as much as i do.Please share your doilies if you made any out of these patterns.

"Study In Clusters" doily-
I get this pattern from Decorative Crochet Magazine 66.The pattern is quite easy and people with basic knowledge of crochet can also make it Smiley But for the advanced/experience crocheters this pattern can get boring after sometime as you will be using only 2 stitches- the cluster stitch and chains.As for me i like something that has various stitches and difficulties to keep me interested.So I made this doily while working on another doily(the 2nd one,described below).I have used size 10 crochet cotton thread in  golden-yellow colour and 1.0mm crochet hook for this.In the last round i have used white beads to give the border  a more defined look. The finished doily is about 17 inches in diameter.

Doily No. 2 - "South Sea Flora" -
This doily pattern is from Decorative Crochet Magazine 48.It is my first oval doily and i had some difficulty in understanding the oval diagram,but after some time managed it smoothly.So, don't give up if it seems somewhat difficult at your first look,it will be easy  once you are crocheting it.Here is how mine looks-

You can find these 2 doilies patterns for free on my blog - http://deltazelta.blogspot.in/2012/09/2-new-doilies.html

These are lovely.  From the thumbnail I thought the first was sea urchin  Roll Eyes  I love the little beads all around the edge.
Thanks for the pattern link.
