If youre new to working up thread doilies, this version is a great place to start because you dont need to work it in thread at all. Ive found that getting some practice in with larger hooks and yarn than the original calls for is the best way of tackling any potential bugs. Believe me, if you think untangling yarn barfs is bad, you should try it with #10 thread.

why is it so hard to find the written pattern to print

Hi! We're sorry you're having trouble with the pattern. I just tried clicking on 'Click here for crochet pattern' and was taken to the blogger's page with no problem. If you scroll down the page a bit, the pattern is written there in full and you should be able to print it. Please let us know if you try again and are still having trouble!

Doilies are fun to make. My grandmother made quite a few of them. I wouldn't be surprised if she had made one very much like this. I enjoy making doilies. I like to make them with an E or F hook and they come out larger than the originals. (It's easier for me to see for one thing.) There are so many pretty variegated colored threads now which makes for interesting patterns within the crocheted piece. This pattern is perfect for a variegated project.

This is such a pretty doily! I have only ever tried to make a doily once before, and I have not finished it yet. I think this pattern looks a lot easier than the one I have half finished in my drawers. I think I will pull that out again when I am done with my current project and try to finish it, that way I wont feel bad about making this one too!

Very pretty mandala / doily. I think back in grand mas days they called them doilies, but today they are most called mandala. The traditional white has been updated also to vibrant colors. These work great at protecting your furniture from hot dishes and from drinks being spilled from glasses.
