Attempting Crochet Lacework……and I highlight the word attempting!

Ok so as if I don’t challenge myself enough! One of my goals when I began to crochet was to learn to crochet with thread and make lace motifs. I love the olden day doilies and table toppers and table runners with all their beautiful and intricate details.


I would sit there and study them and try and work out how they were made and if I were to make one where do I start from.

I have looked all over the internet for a pattern that would suit what I was wanting to do and that would be great to begin with. I found this pattern by BERNAT it’s called Crochet Doilies 3 ways as there are three different things you can use them for. 

So far I have only completed two motifs and ironically I did not do well on the inner circle on the first one but the outside was better and on the second I did well on the inner circle but totally lucked out on the outer one! Hopefully the third one I make will be the charm. (Insert fits of laughter here).

I need to do eight and then crochet a border so I can join them. Well wish me luck and lots of it! 

Thank you all for reading! I hope you are enjoying my blog. I will keep you all updated on the progress of this project.

A big shoutout and thank you for all of you who have supported my blog and taken the time to comment. I enjoy reading all of the feedback and advice I have been given. Thank you ❤❤❤
