Crochet Doily

This year, one of my crafty resolutions was to learn crochet. Though I know how to make some edgings n' all, I am not good with this techinique. Whenever I tried some bigger patterns, it never worked. Most of the time the whole thing would get crumbled up.
This week, I got a pic from my friend, Sunitha , which was a Doily which she made.She was brushing up the skills and I was asking her to send a pic. She only taught me all these techinques, while in college. Here's the pic of her Doily in pretty peach colour.

I was really motivated by this and wanted to give a try. Without much hope I took hook and thread and was experimenting my own,after sometime I realised my skills were getting better. Then I tried to make a Doily,the pattern which I saved in my system long long back. And it came pretty ok,Dont know how. For a perfect finish, I still have a long way to go. But on one glance its just too good. Here's the pic of my latest finish.

Doilies are something I love to make. The one thing still I dont know is where I went wrong all these times, as I did not try out any new techinques this time too..But,I am happy with the progress. Thanks to Sunitha.

Till next time,
Take care


  1. Great effort,Ninu. I could never be so patient. Crocheting with that thread takes so much time.I prefer crocheting with wool.

  2. wow...that looks perfect Ninu.
