September 21: Cluster Stitch Doily - COMPLETED

Pattern # 264:  Cluster Stitch Doily

How gorgeous is this bad boy?  Very gorgeous, very intricate.  I tried to pick up my hook and make one of these, but chickened out.  I blamed the head cold, said I could not process such tiny stitches.. hehe

Updated 3/21/2013: I finished this last October. It was a birthady gift for my mom. She loves it. It did take me forever to finish it, but I am really happy with how it turned out. The pictures do not do it justice!



  1. Hey Meg! Here's a tip for making your first lace/doily project less intimidating: Instead of working with an ultra fine thread and tiny hook, try using a very light weight yarn and hook appropriate for that yarn. There's no way I could get my fingers around such a teenie thread or hook, so I may try this one (because it's GORGEOUS!) in yarn and make a tablecloth or decorative throw out of it.

  2. This is my favorite doily so far...of course it also looks like the most complicated!


Comments make me happy! Thanks for leaving a word to let me know you are reading! :)
