Doily Blanket

I challenged myself to a task for the contest last year: make two versions of a doily in different sizes. The “mini” version was to be made of thread, and the “mega” version was to be made from yarn. Here’s the final result of the larger version: a doily blanket.

The pattern is the Sunburst Pineapple doily, which is a rather large doily even when made with its intended thread. My blanket version was made out of the lovely Antique Teal shade of I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby.

No awards for this one, but I do really like it. In fact, it’s one of the few crocheted afghans that I have out on display. It’s draped over the living room loveseat at this very moment. 🙂

    • Thank you! I believe I used an I (5.5mm) hook on this one – that’s the size recommended for this yarn. I really wish I could remember how much I used – I know it required at least one “emergency” yarn store trip to get more skeins. Lucky for me, they were from the same dye lot! 🙂
