Made of sewing thread this SUNbrella is pretty lace weight. I choosed a star shape to modify and created as blended as possible for showing better the gorgeous motif of this vintage star doily pattern.

Colors are going from pink to purple accross red, orange, yellow, neon green, teal and blue (unfortunately my new camera doesn't seem to like violet shades at all so it's not that clearly visible on pictures...).

Named by Peargirl Knits on facebook! @;)

Amazing. I don't know how you can crochet in sewing thread.  It would destroy my eyes - and my fingers. Must have taken ages. But it is so pretty.

That's great! I do the same thing. I learned to crochet by watching my mom teach a cousin. I still don't know if she ever learned how to crochet. That was 41 years ago! I taught myself to read and follow patterns. I sometimes find some that give me a challenge, but mostly I can follow them. I have remade patterns to be the way I want them to be.
