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!
