Tiny Crochet with Sewing Thread

These two doilies were crocheted with quilting thread and a tiny 13/14 steel hook. The Lily of the Valley doily measures about six inches across. It would have been about 12 inches had I used a #7 hook and #10 crochet cotton.


If you like older thread crochet patterns, you'll notice most call for a hook size 11 or smaller, along with a finer thread.


If you like traditional thread crochet and fun vintage, please check my etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/acadiancrochet. Most items two to seven dollars. Make a cool person happy this Christmas!
