Make yourself a stunning doily, a perfect addition to your decor for any season, with this free crochet doily pattern. It is a very easy crochet project that works up fairly quickly.
I crocheted my Star Doily with cotton thread size 30 and a 1,15 mm/9 crochet hook. It measures 21 cm (8,3 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.
