I think I love youtube. I was browsing through youtube the other day and I found a tutorial on how to crochet a doily from start to finish. I found this last week when I was making my braided ear warmers.
I love crochet but I have never actually crocheted a doily because the instructions just seemed so complicated, but I think I can follow along with a video to get this done.
Here is the link to the first part of the doily instruction video (there are three parts), the other two parts will show up on the right hand side of your screen for you to click when you are ready for them.
I have a set of steel crochet hooks and I'll be using a size 1.65 mm hook to make the doily and I bought some crochet thread for this project. I bought two 1,000 yard skeins of Aunt Lydia's Classic Crochet Thread Size 10 from Amazon. Each skein was $6.40.
Before I start the doily project I wanted to get used to using a small hook again so I started a granny square using the thread and a 2.25 mm hook. I enjoy crocheting granny squares and this will make a nice doily when I get it to a decent size.
