Small Doily Free Crochet Pattern

Small Doily Free Crochet Pattern – I was asked to make a small doily for a friend, just large enough for her to put a plant pot on, she did not want it too fussy but pretty enough to be on display in her window.

It got me thinking that maybe other people might like to make it also, so I wrote down the instructions as I made it. Hope you like it.small doily free crochet pattern
