Clustered Puffy Pentagon Doily
Free Doily Crochet Pattern
Thank you to all those who let me know about the printing problems. I think the "Print Friendly" code is working again. Not sure what the problem was but it should be working now. Let me know if you still run into issues.
And you can still right click and select print. It will give you a clean ad-free layout of the page. After you select print you can change the destination in the top left and save it as a PDF, fax it, or send it to your Google Drive. :)
Although you can use any thread or yarn that you like to make this pattern, I found that it lays much flatter when made in a thread. In a worsted weight yarn is tends to flop a bit, however, the floppiness can be blocked out.
Also, I found that the thread creates a lacier look than a thicker yarn. But the thicker and more solid looks quite nice as well.
The doily measures 4" across when made in a size 10 crochet thread, and 8.5 in a worsted weight yarn.
This Pattern was Tested By:
Patrice Walker You can view an image of her doily on her profile page. She made hers in a baby yarn and it looks really good.
Thank you Patrice for working with me on this pattern. I really appreciate your help and look forward to working with you again in the future.
