Katchkan’s Amethyst Doily

Yes, it’s blocked and done! Yay! It might look good framed, no?

Here’s a close-up (just like that):

I love being a pattern tester! It brings together my two interests: crochet and fault-finding editing nicely.

Thread: Anchor size 20, two strands, one red and the other variegated in red and dark brown/black
Hook: Tulip size 2/1.5 mm steel hook
Pattern: Kathy‘s Amethyst Doily
Time: Over two days (no, you’ll never get time in hours from me, ain’t a marathon person)
Size: 18″
Extra: #1 Kathy might be doing a whole series of these doilies
#2 It cupped a bit after the final row, but it lies nice and flat after blocking. (No “wrassling” involved ;))

PS: It’s called Amethyst because that’s the colour Kathy made it in.

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.

  1. This is just beautiful. I can crochet by sight, but I still haven’t learned to read patterns. I learned to knit first so that is what I feel the most comfortable with. I am very impressed with the lovely items you have made.
