This was named a beautiful crochet doily because I couldn’t think of any other name for it. It is a very simple pattern, but I just love the ribbed center with the pretty lace and picot edging.
The finished size of this crochet doily measures 11 inches across the diameter. Hence it’s great for just about any table or dresser. You could also crochet it in a cotton yarn and use it on your kitchen table for a small centerpiece arrangement. A vase filled with summer flowers, a candle or two, or a bowl full of delicious fruits would look lovely on top of this pretty doily.
Another option is to crochet this doily in a crochet thread. It would come out a lot smaller because of the thinner material, but it might work for a cute coaster or a dainty doily. So I hope you’ll have fun experimenting with this pattern, and also find many uses for it.
