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.

  1. You did a Great Job on that doily!!!!It looks so delicate.

  2. It’s gorgeous! As always, a lovely job. 🙂

  3. Great job! It’s lovely. 🙂 Glad you didn’t have to wrassle… that’s hard work! 😉

  4. 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.
