3 {or should I say 4} Vintage Poinsettia Doilies Finally Finished!

I made these doilies for Christmas presents for my sister and mother, and of course one for me! I had to make mine twice because I was working on one at the hospital while my father-in-law was having surgury and a nurse came by and asked if I was selling these, so I sold her mine.

These work up so quickly once you get the centers of the flowers done. That part took me a little more time because they are so small, just one round of single crochets.

Since I had to re-make mine, I made it just a little different. I did the green all the way around the flowers and then added them to the doily. This one measures 14".

Vintage Poinsettia Doily

This was Annie's Attic free pattern of the day 12/06/07.

I used South Maid size 10 cotton thread and size 7 steel hook. I don't know the exact colors because I used thread I had left over from other projects and the color bands were missing. It measures 11 1/2" across.
