Dawnglow


The pattern for this doily is available now!  It is small and quick to make.  Dawnglow is 18 rounds and measures 8 1/2".  There is a photo tutorial available here, and written instructions available here.  You can also find links for both in the patterns section.  Materials needed are- 1 ball of size 10 thread and a 1.75 mm hook.  The thread I used is Artiste cotton in the colors Glacier Ice and Rose Quartz.  For the ecru doily I used Aunt Lydia's.

The doily has a few different stitches including puff stitches, clusters, front post single crochet, and picots.  It also has pineapples!  I hope that you enjoy making the doily :D

Trio of doilies


I finished typing a pattern for the light pink doily and it will be available tomorrow :D  I'm still working on patterns for the smaller two.  The light pink doily is 18 rounds and measures about 8 1/2".   There are several types of stitches including puff stitches, cluster stitches, front post single crochet, and picots.  I've never made a doily with puff stitches before but I like how it turned out!

They all have the same center but I may change the border on the smaller ones.  The ecru doily measures 6 1/2" and the variegated orange and purple one measures 5".    
  
Making it again in my favorite color, glacier ice (Artiste thread).  The pattern will include a photo tutorial.

Spring Song


Happy spring! :D  I have another pattern to share today for this small doily.  The pattern Spring Song is available here and also in the pattern section.  It is 15 rounds and measures about 7 1/2".  For the 3 doilies shown above I used Artiste thread in the colors glacier, orchid, and tropical pink with a 1.75 mm hook.  For the border I used Aunt Lydia's metallic thread in the color natural gold.

There are also instructions available here for a picot border.    




I'm working on writing down more patterns and may have another small doily pattern ready for next week.  Also feel free to tag me @draiguna or use the hashtag #draiguna on instagram!

Spring Brilliance


Since today is the first day of spring I thought it would be a good time to post the pattern Spring Brilliance!  The pattern is available here and also can be found in the pattern section.  It is an update of the doily pattern Solar Brilliance.  Some noticable differences are- 
  • revised instructions written without the color changes
  • rounds 15, 16, and 17 are completely different
  • there is an 18th round with a new border
Why an update?  I was making Solar Brilliance last week and tried something different for the last few rounds and liked it!  I also figured it was a good time to revise the instructions for one continuous doily without any color changes.

I used Alize Miss Batik size 10 thread in the colorway 3708 with a 1.5 mm hook.  I really like how the doily turned out using a variegated thread.  






I hope that you enjoy making this doily :)  Please feel free to tag me @draiguna or use the hashtag #draiguna on instagram!

Snowy day and some crochet



Hello, It's already March and this is my first post of the year!  I've been working on writing some of my patterns down.  I need to try writing them as I go so it doesn't take as long lol.  This is the one I'm currently working on writing a pattern for-


Here are some other things I've been making this year-

Flower bookmarks made with Knit Picks Curio thread and a 1.5 mm hook.


This bookmark has a shamrock charm on the tassel

A Valentine's Day angel with hearts on her wings and skirt

A heart ornament

This is my current project!  The pattern is called State of the Art.  I'm on round 42 and using size 20 thread with a 1.25 mm hook.

I will try to post more frequently and also get these patterns written down!  Here's one last picture from today.  After some warm weather I guess winter is back!
