I'm looking for table cloths/centerpieces 30-36 inches in diameter

Call me old fashioned, but I absolutely LOVE doilies. I use them on practically all the furniture in my house. This doily pattern is so beautiful, and even though it says it's intermediate level it uses a simple double crochet and single crochet stitch throughout. Plus, the detailed video tutorials make this a no brainer. Even if you're a beginner, don't hesitate to make this pattern, you'll be so proud of yourself when your done.

I used to make doilies when I was a girl, using the steel crochet hook in the very tiny sizes along with the Aunt Lidia's crochet thread. I made them for my mother. Mine were always white or ivory, but I LOVE seeing it in the blue orchid color! They are intricate and do take some time, but the end result is so worth it. Thanks for this pattern!

This looks like a very lovely pattern! I love the color of the thread in the picture. I do find it odd that the pattern is so tiny, but perhaps it's meant to be connected or as accents to bigger patterns. It might look nice to combine many of these into a bigger piece (like a table runner). To beechiegirl1953 and yattetap 4597359, I think you can make it bigger by using a bigger size yarn/thread as well as a bigger hook. It may change the overall look of the pattern though (not too sure).

I agree, this would make a great table runner or centerpiece!

I love that this is a smaller size doilie, only 5.25 by 5.25! It shouldn't take too long to make this one. I don't have size 3 thread though, I have size 5, I will see how that affects the size when I'm done.

I agree with yattetap's comment below. How can one make the doily larger? I would love to make it in 8" - 10" - 12" sizes for various uses. I wish I knew how to do this myself, but I'm not that proficient in crocheting, even though I can make all but the most difficult ones. Increasing or decreasing is a whole other skill. I'm giving it for the beauty of the pattern, which I believe will be easy for me to make. )

How can i make this doily bigger i Love It and it was easy!
