Lilac Coral Crochet Doily


Here is a lovely way to add a personal touch to your home decor. Crochet Doily patterns are the most versatile project you can make. You can use them as Tablemats...Placemats....Table runners....wall hanging art or use a larger size Hook and Yarn and make them into Crochet rugs.

Today am sharing the pattern for this pretty Lilac Coral Crochet Doily. I have used two shades of color. You can make yours with any combination of colors. The size of this doily can be altered according to your choice. The stitches used are very basic hence it would also be a great beginner friendly project. They would also make awesome gifts for your loved ones.





Materials Used:-
4 Ply Cotton Knitting Yarn
4mm Crochet Hook

Size:- 15 Inches( Can be customized to any size)

Notes:-
For this whole Pattern, the Starting Chain 2 is not counted as a stitch. It is Just to bring the yarn to a working height. Start the next stitch in the same stitch.

Here is the Video Tutorial:-







Lets Start...!!!

Round 1:-
Start with a Magic Circle.
12 Double Crochets in the Circle.
Pull the yarn end to close the loop.
Slip stitch on top of the First Double Crochet.
12 Stitches.

Instead of the Starting 12 Double Crochet, you can also directly start with this round.

To Make a Double Crochet Cluster Stitch:-
