Cheerful Summer Crochet Doily With Circle Edging

Bring the joy of summer into your home with this lovely and cheerful summer doily!

I love making Doilies. Doilies are always so beautiful and elegant to look at. You can make this doily to decorate your dining table or use them as a home decor and this would also be great to use as a table mat too.I have made this doily with variegated cotton yarn. Use any colorful yarn of your choice to whip of this doily.

The design is very easy and works up fairly quickly. For the edging, I have used circles which are worked along with the doily and not added separately. This size of this doily is customizable to any diameter. If you want to make a bigger doily size, then you can easily repeat certain rounds and increase it to the size needed.

Materials Used:-
Variegated Cotton Yarn
3mm Crochet Hook





Size:- 15 inches (Can be made to a size of any choice by repeating certain rounds)

  1. Hi! I absolutely LOVE this doily and pattern! Thanks so much for sharing it with us! One thing I'd like to know, though -- what size cotton yarn is this? Is it fingertip yarn, or sport yarn, or what? Also, what letter does a 3mm crochet hook correspond to? I'm sorry to bother you with these questions, but I'd really like to try the pattern and need the info. Thanks so much!
