Small Dainty Doily Pattern

This free Small Dainty Doily Pattern works up quickly and doesn’t require a lot of yarn. It looks intricate, but it is actually a simple, beginner friendly crochet pattern.
You can make it in a variety of colors and with different yarn weights. This way you will have unique openwork doilies of different sizes to decorate your home.
I crocheted my Small Dainty Doily Pattern with cotton thread size 10 and a 1,75 mm crochet hook. It measures 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.
