Easy Round Lace Doily

Create a beautiful lace doily with this free crochet pattern and add a lovely lace accent to any room in your home. The pattern is so easy and quick, you will find you can crochet one in all your favorite colors in no time at all.
I created my Easy Round Lace Doily with cotton thread size 10 and a 2 mm crochet hook. It measures 20 cm (7,87 inches) in diameter. You can use different yarn weights to create doilies of various sizes.
Besides your chosen thread and crochet hook, you will also need a needle to weave in loose ends and a pair of scissors.
