  1. Hi Cindi,
    I hope you let the publisher know so they could update their patterns 🙂 As I did not crochet each doily I could not have known specifically if there was an error in the pattern. But if you did make this and find this mistake you should definitely contact the publisher so they can check and then add an amendment to the pattern.

  2. Surprised that in your rating you didn’t identify the mistake in the round doily Round 14 should have been 4 dc in each space!

  3. These doilies brought me memories of my mother and grandmother crocheting them. The book reminded me of them. Thank you!

  4. Give me doily crochet pattern, and I will die happy. They can be elegant or weird. Mandala or overlay or even a good old fashioned lacy pineapple pattern. LOVE them all

  5. I loved your review of these doilies patterns. They are lovely I am going to save up to buy this

  6. I am wanting to make more doilies to create artwork for my wall. I want to place doilies on a large canvas. The doilies in this book are beautiful.

  7. I really enjoy your reviews because you basically give an opinion that coincides with on own! Keep up the great reviews and giveaways

  8. how about a review on I have started crocheting for charities lately.

  9. Grannies In Bloom. Perfect time of the year with all the flowers starting to come up.

  10. Your reviews are very thorough and concise. If I’m leaning towards buying prior to your review I’m almost sure to buy it after reading it.
