Christmas ruffle doilies. Easy crochet tutorial pattern instant download -- Olga Andrew Designs Pattern 036
This is a step-by-step tutorial pattern for hand crocheted Christmas doilies, which can be used also as a tea-cloth, coaster, place mat or hot bowl (plate) holder, table decoration. Excellent gift for Christmas and for any occasion. (For photos I used a beautiful Christine Purdy’s handmade pottery).
The pattern can be made up with any yarn. The instructions have been tested on several types of yarn and thread. If you use a different yarn brand or type, use an average hook size between the smallest and largest on the yarn label. Variations and experimentations are unlimited!
The pattern includes detailed photos with instructions how to make it -- useful for beginners. This pattern uses only basic stitches, so beginners should have no problem with it. It is written in English using Standard US crochet terminology (with UK crochet terminology if necessary).
Skill level: easy (you only need basic crochet skills).
Materials you will need: 1) crochet yarn (I used Premium Acrylic DK yarn): for small size doily 30 g, for medium size doily 50 g, for large size doily 75 g. 2) crochet hooks (I used hooks size 5 mm and 7 mm).
The approximate diameter of the crocheted doily is: – small about 15 cm (about 5.9 inch), flat base diameter about 7 cm (about 2.7 inch), – medium about 20 cm (about 7.8 inch), flat base diameter about 12 cm (about 4.7 inch), – large about 30 cm (about 11.8 inch), flat base diameter about 21-22 cm (about 8-8.6 inch). The size of the doily may vary depending on the type of yarn, hook size and how tightly you crochet.
