Simple Doily Pattern

As we all know doilies are making a wonderful comeback. They are beautiful because of their delicate intricacies and obvious vintage connotation but with this super simple pattern you can create a doily with a contemporary feel. For this pattern I used a heavy weight rug yarn and a large crochet hook but this pattern works and looks great with any material.

Chain 7. Slip stitch into the 1st chain to form a ring. Chain 2.

Make 13 double crochets into the ring. Slip stitch into the top of the next stitch. Chain 6.

*Make a triple crochet into the top of the next stitch. Chain 2. Triple crochet into the next stitch. *Repeat 11 times. Chain 2. Slip stitch into the 4th chain of the original 6 chains you made at the beginning of this round.

Slip stitch into the next space. Chain 4. Make 3 triple crochets in to the space creates by the previous round. Make 4 triple crochets into each of the remaining spaces.

Now with this simple pattern you can create an array of doily projects! Be creative with this pattern, create things that you will use and love but if you are stuck on ideas here are several great sites with that can get you started:
