a little something I've been working on......

I decided to do a little crocheting and make some more of my favourite small crocheted doilies/coasters. I crocheted 2 with pink and white crochet cotton thread size 10 and a size 1.15mm steel hook. Then I decided to try the same pattern out using my worsted weight pink and white cotton for dishcloths with a size F Hook and I was really happy with the way they all turned out!
.
Here are some pics of the finished doilies. Now I think I'll work with some blue and white next...which would match perfectly in my kitchen! If you are interested in the pattern for this small doily/coaster you can find it here from Jodhi, the PotHolder Lady...it is an archived site and for some reason I haven't had much luck in the last few days viewing it, but if you keep trying it might work...if I find another link that works better for it I will be sure to post it here for you. The pattern calls for beads to be added on the last round, but I find adding a different colour works just as well! Very Pretty Pattern!! Make sure to click on the pics for a bigger and better look at them too :o)

This is the first one done with crochet cotton thread in pink with a white trim.

This is the second one I did with crochet cotton thread in white with a pink trim.


This is the first doily I made using 100% Worsted Weight Cotton and Size F Hook.


And here is the last one I made with the worsted weight cotton.



And of course this is a pic of all the doilies put together so you can see just how much bigger and smaller they are compared to eachother. I just love them!

Hugs For a Wonderful Weekend,

Hi Rachel,
You probably should just remove the link to these cute coasters since the site owner has blocked retrieval via the wayback machine. The pattern is no longer available anywhere on the web. I guess the only other way would be to try and contact Johdi and find out if the pattern is anywhere that we could get it. Your coasters/dishcloths are so pretty!!! Everyone wants to make them now!
