Crocheters normally progress to doily making after having mastered Afghan rugs or Granny Squares. Doilies are worked in finer cotton with smaller hooks, than rugs etc., and therefore are considered a more advanced form of crochet. The free doily pattern above, is created with relatively basic stitches - trebles, double crochet, slip stitches. If you enjoyed making this doily, you might like to create my Crochet Doily Pattern.
