My Yarn Doily Pattern

Edit Dec 31, 2020:
I thought I would make this doily again and the mistakes I found in this pattern. I can see why creators seek pattern testers. I got to row 4 and realized I was I was suppose to have 3 dc between the increase, not 2. I had to fix every row after row 4. I also made some other changes. 


There is nothing fancy about this doily, just a simple flower pattern using worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn to make this doily, but worsted weight cotton could work also.

I used a size F hook and got a doily that measures 8 1/2 inches (22 cm) across.

I did make the latest doily is Peaches and Cream cotton yarn, I also ended up grabbing a size G hook, Here are the results:


One two ounce ball of Peaches and Cream was enough to complete the doily.



Here is the pattern:
Ch 6, join to form ring,
Row 1: Ch 3, 15 dc in ring, join

Row 2: Ch 3, 2 more dc in same stitch, ch 2 *skip next dc, 3 dc in the next dc, ch 2* repeat around, join at top of chain 3. 8 3 dc cluster.

Row 3: Ch 3, dc in the same stitch, dc in next dc, 2 dc in the next dc, ch 2, *2 dc in the next dc, dc in the next dc, 2 dc in the next dc, ch 2* repeat around, join at top of chain 3.

Row 4: Ch 3, dc in the same stitch, dc in next 3 dc, 2 dc in the next dc, ch 2, *2 dc in the next dc, dc in the next 3 dc, 2 dc in the next dc, ch 2* repeat around, join at top of chain 3.

Row 5: Ch 3, dc in the same stitch, dc in next 5 dc, 2 dc in the next dc, ch 2, *2 dc in the next dc, dc in the next 5 dc, 2 dc in the next dc, ch 2* repeat around, join at top of chain 3.

Row 6: ss to next dc, ch 3, dc in the next 6 dc, leave the last dc unworked, ch 3, sc in ch 2 space, chain 3, * skip next dc, dc in the next 7 dc, 
leave the last dc unworked, ch 3, sc in then ch 2 space, ch 3* repeat around, join at top of chain 3

Row 7: ss to next dc, ch 3, dc in the next 4, [ch 3, sc in the next ch 3 space] 2 times, ch 3, *skip next dc, dc in the next 5 dc, [ ch 3, sc in the next ch 3 space] 2 times, ch 3* repeat around, join at top of chain 3.

  1. love this simple pattern - I've been looking for something that would easily fit over my pumpkin! I'm thinking 2 of these joined one on top of the other would be just perfect for my decorative pumpkin! Thanks for sharing!
