I'm looking forward to this ... seven of us including myself will be working on this 1918 doily. The pattern itself is at Crochet Treasures ... I thank them for sharing these wonderful works of art.
The pattern calls for size 20 thread and a size 12 hook , too small for me right now, so I am going to use size 10 thread with a size 4 hook. Use whatever is comfortable for you. I picked out a creme color from my thread stash. This is a larger ball of thread then needed. I really thought about Christmas colors (I may have to do another one) but I'm thinking maybe the lighter color will photograph better to see stitches, etc.
The stitches that will be used are chain, single crochet, double crochet, treble crochet and picot.
I'm thinking of maybe getting this start off on Friday. If you want to go ahead and start feel free. Wanted to get this much posted as, of course, my computer is acting up, so making use of the time its working. Will post stitch instructions when I get back home today (hopefully). Have a great day!
