Step 1: Getting Started

Create a lovely wild grape doily with our free crochet pattern to enjoy in your home or as a wonderful hand made gift for someone special. This doily is fun to make and a great pattern for experienced crocheters. Our guest crocheter, Chris Bordner, also made some coasters to go with the doily. She used the doily pattern to row 4 and then used the same edging around the coasters. They turned out so pretty! (See the images.)

Difficulty: Intermediate

Materials: Pictured Doily = US D3 /3.25 MM hook and Aunt Lydia's #3 fashion thread in Sage, Coffee, Plum and Natural. The doily made with US D3 /3.25 MM hook will measure about 15 inches wide from point to point.

Note: This doily could be made in white, ecru or combined with color making the cluster of grapes in purple thread. The original pattern measures about 9 inches, if made with size 30 mercerized thread and number 14 steel crochet hook. A larger size may be made by using Larger size thread and hook. (See images for example of larger size.)

Abbreviations: ch (chain) St (stitch) sl St (slip stitch) sk (skip) sp (space) dc (double crochet) lp (loop) pc st (popcorn stitch) rnd (round) tr (treble)
