These small doily’s can be used in different ways on there own on any unit or table top as a decoration.

Under a plant or vase
Where as you can see my four month old kitten was so interested it took four shots before I was able to get a picture without the cat monopolising the plant.
I can make these doilies for a very low cost of £2.70 each.
250g Double Knit Multi coloured wool
4mm Crochet Hook
Unlike my last project I spent just a couple of days on this on just a basic block granny square. Sixteen on the front and sixteen on the back.
The trim was made by one row of double crochet, one row of treble and the last row was two treble in each stitch giving it a wavy effect.
This crochet Afghan Blanket is made with block Granny Squares, there are one hundred squares in total.
For those that want the facts I used double knit wool four 100g balls of white, 2 red, 4 different pinks and 1 dark red. I used a 5mm sized hook. There are twenty hearts which were sewn onto white squares and laid out to make a larger heart within the blanket.
Round 1: Double crochet into each stitch of the squares, two stitches into the corners of the squares, on the corners I did five double crochet.
Round 2: One treble,one chain, One treble into one stitch then miss one stitch and repeat.
Round 3: Two treble, two chain, two treble into the one chain on the “V” of previous round, and repeat.
Round 4: Three treble, three chain, three treble into the two chain on the “V” of previous round, and repeat.
I started work on this just after Christmas it was supposed to have been for a competition but it the finishing date was long past when finished, think it would have only been finished on time if I didn’t have to go to work every day.
