Doily Afghans in UK terms loosely translates as ‘lacy blankets’ Think of a doily but bigger!
I really enjoy hooking up a lace doily/mandala pattern, but often wonder what to do with them afterwards…
Problem solved with this little book, because who doesn’t love,want (or need) more pretty crochet blankets? There are 5 patterns for you in this book, not really a book more of a bookazine, published by Searchpress for Annie’s Crochet. Each blanket is designed by a different designer. Skill level = easy to intermediate.
My favourite pattern is called the ‘Circle of Stars’ on page 18.
This is a simple but clever design. Easy to follow pattern, with a super result. As you can see I am well on the way to actually finishing the first motif. Plus as I am using chunky yarn and a large hook (12mm) I may not need to crochet so many motifs.
I fancy trying this in chunky cotton for summer. I may even make it up in white for a stunning blanket to use on the garden furniture. A garden ‘throw’ perhaps?
I used a chunky yarn and a large hook, making this project a fast one to crochet. i liked the result of this pattern so much, I have considered using it as a rug (that is if I ever finish it)
All patterns from Doily Afghans are written Us terms, with a handy conversion chart included at the end, for easy reference.
In conclusion, if you are a crochet fan who enjoys hooking up an unusual blanket pattern, than you will love this crochet book.
