Vintage Pansy Doilies for Spring

Crocheted in the round with a white center, traditional pansy doilies have flowers around the edge that are crafted separately and added with a joining row, often in green. Many patterns call for a ruffled edging in white along the petals. They are usually made with #10 crochet cotton and a steel hook.
