Crochet Pattern: Blossom Doily

By Erin Burger – 14 Comments
This doily was designed with a similar idea in mind as The Hipster Doily; using sock or fingering yarn in modern colors to update the idea of an old fashioned doily made with cotton lace weight yarns and tiny steel hooks. I love the way this doily looks either like a flower or a star, making it versatile for decorating.

Skill Level: crochet skill level intermediate

Finished Size: Approx. 8″ (20.32 cm) in diameter

60 yards Fingering Weight Yarn
Crochet Hook E (3.50 mm)

Gauge: not needed for this pattern

    I’m having trouble with rounds 1, 2, 3. Can you run your eye over the pattern to make sure it’s correct. If it is, I’ll try to convey more precisely what my problem is. Thanks!

  5. Rae says:

    Thanks sooooo much for these patterns. I do a lot of crochet and knitting at work, (nightshift computer watching :)) and I just finished a project earlier than I planned, soI didn’t have anotherone ready to go. 12 hours with nothing to keep my hands busy is a looooong night. Then I ran across you site, and these wonderful, quick working patterns. I’ve got the “Hipster”,the “Large Hipster” and the “Blossom” printed out, (can’t save websites at work), and an email of the link to myself so I can get more at home!!!
    Thank you for helping to keep me sane, and save the sanities of my co-workers!!!

      Hi Ela, I think Erin had a typo in the pattern, so I edited round 2. Let me know if you have trouble with the way it’s written now.

    I’m just not getting round #5.
    Beginning with after I have done tcl, ch 3, tck. I then ch 16. sl st in 12th stitch of chain I have just worked to form a ring, then ch 3, turn work, then 6 dc in ring. then it says sl st in sc of prev row. I may, although I’m not sure, be joining in the wrong stitch of the previous row. I assumed that this would be the stitch that was an sc in the row below it while I go forward with my work. Not turning at this point, then turn again and do 8 dc in ring and turn. here is where I am completely lost. I came out constantly doing the wrong side of the ring and in so doing twisting my work causing it to not lay flat at all or having not otehr place to go other than on top of the previous tcl point.. What am I doing wrong?

  9. Alessandra Hughes says:

    Hi! I know this is an older post but I was hoping to get some help on row 5! I can’t get it! 🙁

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Sure! What part on row 5 are you having trouble with?

      • Alessandra Hughes says:

        When sl st on 12th chain from hook, is that the sc that we joined row 2 and 3? Then ch 3, turn, 6 dc into ring, I did that. Then sl st in sc of previous row I don’t get it
        Thanks for responding!! I love this doily, I did the hipster one and it turned out great!

        • Rachel Choi says:

          The 12th chain from your hook will be apart of the 16 chains you made. You will not make the slip stitch into a single crochet, you are working into a chain. Starting from your hook, count 12 of the chains and then make your slip stitch into that chain. Since you chained 16 you will have 4 chains left.
          The “sl st in sc of previous row” means to make a slip stitch into the single crochet on row 4. You don’t want to work into the chains that are left.
