Doily patterns

Doily patterns, usually knitted or crocheted in cotton thread, can also be used to make shawls or blankets. It is all a matter of choosing a suitable yarn and gauge. For example this Hemlock Ring lap blanket was originally a vintage doily pattern. It was worked in 720 yards of Knit Picks Telemark sport yarn, measuring 50 inches in diameter.

  1. Such a lovely blanket! I can't get over how prolific you are - you seem to finish major projects in no time at all.

    Also love the blog. Can't wait to read more :)
