Do you remember the beautiful doilies your grandmother or great-aunt used to make? Have you always wondered how they created such pretty pieces and wished you could crochet them too? Many thread crocheters started out as yarn crocheters until they realized the stitches are worked exactly the same in thread as they are in yarn! Now you, too, can learn how to crochet elegant doilies by taking this mini class. In this beginner-level crochet class, you'll:
  • Learn how to work and join rounds
  • Learn how to single crochet in a ring to form the first round
  • Watch Susan demonstrate basic crochet stitches in thread
  • Discover how to create a multicolored project
  • Work chain stitches, single crochet, double crochet and treble crochet
  • Learn to work a simple treble crochet shell
This class is one lesson from the 4-1/2-hour Crocheting With Thread class. Included in the Beginner's First Doily class is a $5 off coupon toward the Crocheting With Thread class.

I never thought that I would be able to make such beautiful work like my Mother used to make, until I came across this class.

I had a difficult time as the hooks were so tiny and the thread so thin. I tried using a larger size hook and thread, and had some success, but I'm afraid I had a problem with counting, slip stitching, and following the directions were pretty much Greek to me. Am beginner except for granny squares, but I think with time I may just master this great little pattern.
In fact I have two I made I'd like to show you. How can I send into the project images from students?

You can find my demonstration of blocking the Beginner's First Doily in the free class called "Blocking Techniques". Annie's put this video class together and gave it to everyone who purchased a crochet or knitting class (it should be in your "bookshelf" of Annie's classes.

Very good class. I understood all the instructions. You did not tell how to block the doily and I really needed to see that.
I would recommend this class.
