Here is a small, but a cute doily for your end tables and dressers. Or, use it as a small centerpiece for the kitchen table if you like.
I’ve crocheted it here in three colors, but choose a single color too if you like.
The finished size measures just 7.5″ across the diameter. However, you could adjust the size slightly by choosing a thinner or thicker material.
