This doily was crocheted with Royale Classic Crochet Thread sz 10, in Burgundy, and a US sz 6 hook. The pattern suggests using a sz 7 but for some reason, I am a tight crocheter. I may be a loose knitter but not so when I crochet. Hmmm? It still only measures 13 3/8" across...
The pattern can be found at ThreadAddicts under Files/CrochetAlongs-Monthly/2010 CAL/04-April. There is a rich assortment of doilies to make and with lots of friendship....and help, too, when needed.
I am my mother's daughter. She taught me how to knit, ride a horse, love and enjoy the unique characteristics of all living things, shoot a .22 rifle, drive a car, cook, be kind to people (if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all), sing, and country dance.
Back to knitting...I dream, think, read and talk knitting.
I knit every day.
