I ﬁrst got addicted to making doilies because I could pick a pattern and just get started with any thread I had on hand. I never had to worry about gauge again or whether the item was the right size. Cool! (Insert wrong buzzer sound here…)
Have you ever come across a pattern with several sizes of doilies in the same design, and wondered which size you should make? Actually, the designer intended for you to make all of them, and at least six of each!
Any attractive wide insertion in ﬁlet crochet may be combined with ribbon of the same width to make a very pretty door panel or curtain. Make the outside strips the longest, and the center strip the shortest, with the length of the strips gradually decreasing.
