Lace Love: Willow

Willow was my first doily blanket pattern. I created it for the Fall 2011 issue of CraftSanity Magazine. It yields a generously sized lap blanket. Use an acrylic yarn for a durable throw blanket for your couch or use your favorite wool to create a warm blanket for chilly evenings.

Yarn used for sample:
Less than 2 skeins (~525 yards) of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn [7 ounces/355 Yards each]

6mm (J)

Willow is included in the Lace Love book and also in the October 2011 issue of CraftSanity Magazine.

    Hello! This is so pretty! I stumbled upon it somehow on a crochet blog and quickly found the craft sanity magazine so I ordered that issue – was so happy they still had some! I also just purchased the glory pattern and am so very excited to get started on these! They are so pretty and I am learning to crochet and am looking forward to learning now to work in the round! Love your patterns! Can’t wait to try Anya and Dory, too! :O)

    Greetings from Mexico!

  • I recently purchased this pattern for two reasons:
    1. I fell head over heals in love with it and knew I had to crochet two of these for my living room.
    2. My Mom, who is 88 years old and has been crocheting for over 75 years LOVES to crochet doilies. I shared this with her and sure enough she was crocheting Willow in every color she has.

    Love this site so much. Thank you for Willow. It’s a memory for my Mom and I that I’ll cherish.

    I love this blanket! Just finished one in fuchsia and I love the mustardy/gold color you’ve used above. I’d love to make one in that color next! Any chance you know what the name of that color is? Is it also HL I Love This Yarn? Thanks so much for sharing your talents!!

    Hi there! I’m absolutely in love with this pattern, thank you so much for creating and sharing it! I’m currently struggling with the CL though – I never end up with 3 or 5 loops on my hook, but rather 4 and 7 loops.

    When I start the CL, I already have 1 loop on my hook. Then I YO, pull loop through 3ch sp, YO, and pull through 2 loops – so I have my beginning loop and the loop I just pulled through. If I repeat that twice, I wind up with 4 loops, not 3. Clearly, I’m doing something wrong, I just can’t figure out what! Help would be greatly, greatly appreciated!
