Octagon Crochet Doily

Enjoy the beauty of the Octagon Crochet Doily on any table throughout your home. Use this free pattern to make the doily in a variety of colors and with different yarn weights. This way you will have unique doilies of different sizes to decorate your home. This design, the shape in particular, was actually requested by my good friend Jessica.
I crocheted my Octagon Crochet Doily with cotton thread size 5 and a 2 mm crochet hook. It measures 23 cm (9 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.
