I confess I have had a little bit of a crochet doily obsession as of late.  To prove my point enjoy a  few quick IPad captures:

worked this beauty from a diagram pattern. So excited I finally made the plunge!
The plan is to turn this one into a bowl.¬†¬† I’ll share when it’s complete.

I almost gave up on this¬† because I don’t really care for patterns that require breaking off and finishing things separately. Call me crazy but I like to have the freedom to rip stitches if I’m not thrilled with how the pattern is working up……However I loved how this turned out so happy that I hung in there!¬†¬†¬† Find the free pattern¬† HERE

If you are one of the lucky folks who have a three-day weekend….ENJOY!

I am not one of them.

Peace!

I crocheted this small hexagon using left over white thread from a previous project though I imagine this pattern would look fantastic worked up with vibrant color yarn.   The materials I used are a size 3 crochet thread with a size 0 crochet hook.  While I have not tested this pattern using any other type of yarn I am pretty certain  it can be worked up in a worsted weight yarn as well.   My example measures approximately  3.5 inches
