I made the stunning Crochet Cathedral Doily with cotton thread size 10 and a 2 mm crochet hook. Its size is 16 cm (6,3 inches) in diameter.
Besides your chosen thread and crochet hook, you will also need a needle to weave in loose ends and a pair of scissors.

  1. Thank you for this beautiful pattern! I’m going to stiffen it and form it into a bowl. Should make a beautiful gift.

  2. No, it’s 18. There is an error at the beginning of rnd 3- should be 2 DC in 1st sp. I used a 7 hook and made adjustments throughout to make it flat.

    1. I just checked the pattern again. There is no error. The pattern starts with 19 dc and at the beginning of round 3 it has only 1 dc in first ch-1 sp. If you start with 18 dc or if you put the extra dc in round 3, then when you reach round 8 you will find that the number of stitches you have is incorrect and you will have to make adjustments there.
