I'm a beginner crocheter and this is the first pattern I've created. I wanted to try a doily but I could find a pattern to match the size yarn and hook I wanted to use so i decided to try my own. I used 2 skeins of embroidery thread and it has a wpi of 12/13 and a size F hook. I believe though that as long as you use the same number of stitches per round, then it should work with any weight of yarn and hook. I plan to try it again with worsted weight yarn and a 5mm, 5.5mm or 6.5mm hook.
