A Crochet Along

I'm enjoying a crochet along that Faith of Crochet by the Sea, Stitchy of Stitchy McFloss, and Vikki of By Hooks 4U has going on.  Fabulous ladies!  Its the Pretty Petals Potholder, a 1946 pattern.   I'm not making it the potholder but as a coaster / doily.   I have one in green which is a perfect coaster size, and now have on the hook an orangey red which I think I will make somewhat larger.

I'm thinking that I would like to make this out of cotton to use as a rug.  Added to my list of things to make, maybe a Fall project.

Its fun to be sharing the same pattern with others.  Thanks Faith for setting this up.  Looking forward to other crochet alongs.
Have a great rest of the weekend.


  1. Those look great! I like the colors you are using. Hope you have a great day! Tammy

  2. It was Stitchy who thought of it, we jumped in at the same time...Isn't it fun? I like the idea of making this as a rug..Your lovely green one, would go with my pink one...great minds think alike. I plan on making a companion to the one which I posted about, in that green with the warm rose trim, for the vintage candleholders...simple charming......

  3. Wow, your doilies are lovely! This CAL is so much fun. I can't wait to start another one with all of you. :)

    Blessings to you and yours always

  4. Let's do start was fun knowing we were all working on the same pattern across the miles...:)

  5. Looks like since I have the book with that pattern in it I am going to have to get busy and make one up too. I saw Faith's and it turned out so pretty and so did yours. Now I am itching to make one as well. I mentioned to Faith that done in worsted weight yarn with a yellow center one could make a pretty pillow cover. Lovely!

  6. Oh yours are so beautiful, I love the colors you are choosing! I must put these to my to-do list, the pattern is just so lovely! Sounds you are having a lot of fun joining the CAL! :)
    You have a great day!
    Hugs, LS
