Finally I can share a photo of the doily rug I mentioned in my last post. My Dad used to crochet lots of lacy doilies and tablecloths in the finest crochet cotton. I could never have the patience to make anything so fine, but I do love how using a chunky yarn has made this into a practical and decorative piece of homeware.
I’m thinking maybe I could make one in a really bright colour for the teen? Look out for it in the new issue of Inside Crochet, on sale now.
