Every time our editorial board (of American School of Needlework) unfolded a new doily sent to us by Delsie Rhoades, each person around the table expressed how pretty she thought it was.  This designer has the unique ability of taking crochet thread and hook in hand, and pretty new stitch arrangements seem to appear effortlessly.  Thus we titled this collection of designs, Pretty Doilies.

By following these patterns  you will soon have your own collection of Pretty Doilies to enjoy now and to give as special gifts.  You will also take pride in the knowledge that you are creating an heirloom that will be appreciated in the future.

Crochet thread:  Bedspread-weight crochet thread, the size usually used to make tablecoths and bedspreads, is used for the doilies in these pattern.  It is sold under various brand names, such as: J & P Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen, Opera, size 10, or South Maid; Anchor Crochet Cotton size 10 DMC Cebelia, size 10 (Personally I prefer the Cebelia thread). or Baroque: American Thread Giant; or Grandma's Best.

 These doilies are about 11 inches to 14 inches in diameter
