I make any doily pattern in yarn larger hook of course, and the doily " grows " quite a bit. Baby yarn works well with 3mm hook and worsted weight with a 4mm hook. chunky ? maybe but I think that's getting into afghan size.....hmmmmm??

i like diagrams, hard to find but the easiest to follow i think...if you are ok with spending a little money, the encyclopedia of crochet is awesome, lots of diagrams and maybe you could come up with your own :) good luck:)

Ha, ha, I was about to post and ask the same thing! I have been looking for yarn doilies too! I have a few that I found in a box when we moved and my husband and I have no idea where they came from! They are old and the colors are really ugly, lol, but I like to put my jar candles on them since the bottoms of them get hot! I found one pattern that is really nice....I'm about to start it in the next few days...here it is if you want to try it...

Hi,

Here is a link to a "yarn" doily pattern that has hearts in it. I made this doily with Simply Soft yarn and I think it came out beautiful! The pattern was very easy too! It is the perfect size to use under one of the small candle jars...looks so pretty! :)

 

I do have a photo of this doily that I would love to add to this, but I can't seem to figure out how to post a photo on Crochetville...? I am sort of new here and have not posted many messages, ...maybe that is why I cannot?

Who has taken a doily pattern and turned it into an afghan or bedspread (making the doily over and over and over and over again)? Some of the doily patterns are incredible and would make wonderful larger items if that person had patience (which I do not!) I'd love to some photos of WIPs or finished items!

Most of the doilies that are around, can be made with yarn. Baby yarn is one step up from thread, then try ww yarn. Just remember to use your larger hooks for the doily. Start with an F and work up depending on the size yarn you use. I think you will be surprised with how they turn out.:hook

I was looking for an easy doily to make at lunch and had these saved (I had another but it looks like it's gone) and I remembered there was a post asking for yarn doilies.

http://www.crochetnmore.com/myfirstdoilybyvictoriagable.htm

is done in speed cro sheen but could be used with baby yarn or even regular yarn. [note: also works well in size 10 thread, that's what I used and it's small but nice easy pattern].

http://www.crochetnmore.com/lacydoily.htm is done in sportsweight cotton yarn, says size 1 hook, but could be made with any that is comfortable to you.

Helpful suggestions. I know this is an old post, but I was wondering if folks had come across any other good yarn doily patterns since it was last active.

Just saw this post. Thanks so much, I also do not do thread. Loved the link to the hearts doily.

I've made like 2 of those, and it's really easy to make. I especially like it because it has hearts.

The hearts around is only a coaster size.

 

I made the petite pineapples doily with simply soft and an E hook and they came out to be the perfect placemat size.

Not all are doilies, but they look like them... most are small coasters, but fi you use a larger hook, you can get them done.

 

You can also make some and adjust as needed. I've done that. Which means you need to frog. So if youd o a few rows and it's too tight, then you frog and add more chains or stitches. If it's too loose then you frog and take out some chains or stitches. Chains are easiest if they're not used in a pattern.

I made yarn doilies for my end tables and coffee table about 3 years ago.

I made just a large granny square with a ruffle at the end to go under lamps and a rectangle granny square with a ruffle for my coffee table. Mine were in forest green and fisherman they really looked nice.:)

 

 

Hope this helps Cheryl

I've used doily patterns to make throw rugs out of worsted weight. For years I was afraid to try it with thread, what a sissy!!
