Happy Pastels Day

Today I declare Happy Pastels Day.
Just because. ;-)

No such day without a doily though! This doily pattern is from a Japanese crochet book, published a couple of years ago.

I deviated from the pattern for the last rows and edging...

Oh, before I forget: here is a glimpse of Mollie Makes #41 which has tutorials for three hangers I made. All très pastel chic. ;-) Hope you like them...!

    1. Thanks! Unfortunately I don't have the title of the book, because it's only written in Japanese (in contrast with a lot others Japanese crochet books, where there is also an English title), but the colophon gives the following clues: Copyright Kazuko Murabayashi 2008. Plus a website: books.bunka.ac.jp. On the cover there is a photo of two delicate white crocheted flowers.
      Hope this helps...

  8. Your pastel doily is a lovely design. It seems to be based on natural forms. That's great because nature can always lead us to beauty.

    I will be on the lookout for the Mollie Makes issue with your designs. It always takes a while for the 'current' issue to reach us in New York.

    1. Hi Jen,

      First of all I'd like to say I feel honoured you're making the hanger - yay!
      Happy to help of course. :-) I'm not sure if I understand the question right: Do you mean how to close the square? If so, you could do that either by slip stitching or by using a needle.

      The second round will go as follows (I'm using the English terminology, as does MM, in contrary to what I normally use in my posts):
      [2dc, 1htr+ 2ch+1htr in 1 st] close round by either ss or sewing.

      Mmm, let me know if this helps (or makes thing worse...)

      All best,

      haafner
