Doily FO: “Poppy”

Last FO post, I mentioned that I had a lot of the second skein of Alize Miss Batik left over from that doily (“Emma”).  I decided to start another of Grace Fearon’s doily patterns– this time one that others have already crocheted (with great results) with that same line of thread.

Here’s my “Poppy”:

Again, the thread is Alize Miss Batik (colorway “3713”).

So much fun to watch the colors change as you crochet!  And the results are one-of-a-kind, since even using the same thread can yield distinctive results, depending on where in the color change you start.

I used the same hook as (almost) always– 1.75mm Clover Amour steel hook.

This was a fun pattern, and it doesn’t use that much thread, really, so it’s a good choice for partial skeins where you have a decent bit of thread left over.

This would also be a good candidate for build-your-own colorways (changing color every round or section, using a variety of single-color threads).

"Poppy"

This is another “advanced” pattern.  I didn’t make detailed notes, but looking at the photos of the finished doily, I can see a few potentially tricky spots for beginners… Nothing too hard, if you’re used to textured doilies, though.

There are a lot of finished projects for this pattern on Ravelry, so you can get an idea for how it looks in numerous colors– and there are also some to help you figure out where you might want to change colors, if you do try the “color block” style.

There’s still one more finished object in this thread!  Next time!
