Two Tone

Hope everyone had a wonderful Diwali..We don't celebrate this festival,but I enjoyed watching lights,traditional flowers,rangoli,sweets,fire crackers by neighbours, and the most fun was to watch the sky after sun with colourful fireworks!It was fabulous!In Kerala,we burst crackers during Christmas with all our heart!!Oh!!!I am waiting for December to come!
 OK,now speaking of Two Tones,I am back to Doily making after a short(very short) break!These cute things can be great gifts,I believe!This pattern was bookmarked long time ago and on Tuesday(which was holiday for my hubby) I started working on it. Its a very simple pattern and done in a day's time taking many intervals in between.As always choosing colour was really a task!
 Again I chose one with lavender n yellow,I already have an embroidered bed sheet set,2 crochet cushion covers in this combo, so why not a doily??
 The second one is flesh colour+peach,this was an experiment, but I loved this combo. quite fResh!Which one you like better?
 The pattern was so easy to follow and my doilies came 8 inch diameter after blocking. Without blocking also, it holds a very nice shape and size. If I happen to crochet this pattern again,I will surely avoid blocking part.

Pattern: Two Tone Doily
Thread:Anchor Crochet Cotton size 20

Till Next time
Take Care
