Although this gorgeous doily has the appearance of being rather small, it actually measures 16 inches across when crocheted as per gauge, which would make a great topper even for your dining room table! This is an intermediate-level pattern, for those of you who have familiarity with crocheting with Size 10 thread and steel hooks, and have the basics of crochet “down.” Tools/materials required include Size 10 cotton thread, heavy spray starch, and a Size 7/H hook. As you can probably tell by looking at the featured image here, there are some “special” stitches required to complete this project, and detailed instructions are provided with the pattern itself. This is truly one worth considering for next Christmas!
