Vintage Crochet Roses Doily

This is a Doily crocheted by my grandmother. As a small child, I remember her crocheting these doilies without a pattern. When I looked closely none of the roses were exactly the same. She may have started with a pattern but my family has been unable to find it. I've worked a version of the roses in white. Of course you can do them in any colour.

Detail of Rose

It is done in a very fine weight crochet cotton.

This is a detail shot of the Rose. The variations in colour are caused by fading, rather than a variegated crochet cotton.

I'm including close detail shots for those people who are interested in crocheting from the pictures.

Detail of Crochet Rose Doily

Here is a cross section of the doily, large enough to be able to see the stitches for reading the pattern, for those of you are brave enough to work without a pattern. My grandmother could look at something and then just crochet it. I am not there.

The doily is heavily starched with a sugar water mixture and pinned to a cardboard to stretch it. This doily has not been re-starched since my grandmother did it. I think that the roses need to be starched individually.
