The Tea Time Doily -- Crochet Pattern Review


Doilies are so pretty and they add a so much character to a boring table.  I absolutely love them and so I decided to give crocheting one a try.  I found this really cute pattern on Ravelry and it's called the Tea Time Doily.

This pattern was really easy to crochet but really hard to read.  It is archived on a site on wayback machine and the website has a horrible background.  It's so hard to read the pattern.  If you are going to make this doily I really suggesting copying and pasting the pattern into a word document.  If you don't do that with this crochet pattern it is going to be almost impossible to read without driving your eyes crazy.  Without doing this the pattern will be almost impossible to read.  The website was created at a time when everyone wanted to use those textured backgrounds.

Other than that little complaint this pattern is awesome.  It comes up together really fast and I have gotten tons of compliments on how easy this doily is to crochet.

If you want to create this really fun and easy crochet pattern than check the out the link here.

They doily in the photograph at Ravelry is stunning, they use two colors which is what the original pattern calls for.  I decided to crochet my doily in one solid color.  I had no other colors available to me at the time.

5 Interesting Non Traditional Crochet Square Patterns

I absolutely love to crochet squares.  The very first crochet pattern I ever learned by heart was the granny square.  Even now, years and years later, when I am bored and I just want to crochet for the pure joy of crochet, the granny square is my go to pattern.  I know many other crocheters out there feel the same way and that's why crocheting squares is so popular.  There are so many square patterns out there, a crocheter could never complete them all in a life time.  I decided to search up a few really awesome squares and I felt were unique but still reminded me of that classic pattern I love so much.  These are the patterns that I found.  The stained glass afghan pattern costs a $1.99 but the rest of the patterns listed here are completely free and they are featured on the blogs of other designers.  All of these designs are now additions to my crochet bucket list.
