Doily blanket #4 (#1, #2, #3)

6.5mm (US K) hook

Test yarns used
4 skeins Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice
2 skeins Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn!
2 skeins Caron Simply Soft
3 skeins Bernat Waverly

U.S. crochet terminology used. Stitches needed: chain, single crochet, double crochet, slip-stitch. Special stitch patterns are described and listed in the file.

    I just finished this project and I’m already starting another. Instead of making the blankie size, I used a smaller hook and cotton yarn to make a hearty doily for the table. It worked great! Thank you and keep your patterns coming!

  • This one is gorgeous! Well done, I have been doing some similar ones in the larger yarn and I love how they turn out as blankets.

    I bought the pattern, i really liked it, but it is turning out small because I used a (US K). I wanted to say the 6.5mm is not(US K) it’s a
    (US N). I didn’t want anyone else to make that mistake.

    • Where are you getting your conversion? 6.5mm is US K (10) and N (15) is 9mm.

      I think if you generally crochet with a tighter gauge, the larger hook will be beneficial. I usually use a 5mm or 5.5mm (US H or I) for worsted weight yarn, but went up to 6.5mm so the fabric would be open and lacy.

    I love this pattern! I’d love to make it larger, to fit a twin-full size bed. Do you have any tips? Repeating the pattern at a certain point?

    Thanks!

      I’m on the same boat with you!! I tried this pattern and it was awful! I couldn’t get it right but I’m Hoping that if someone with a good kind heart is willing to make this and sell me a few I would truly appreciate it A LOT!! Thanks!

    I do knit. I’ve tried to crotchet which I’ve been told it’s almost the same, but it’s not! I love this pattern and I have tried it and I had a hard time with it. I would love to learn how to make this pattern. I’m not looking for bulk purchases but a set or two. I wonder if you can do a two color pattern with this same style? Thanks
