Oya Doily- Finished!

5 Comments




So a while back in a previous post about knitted lace doilies and the tablecloth I made thats on etsy, I also stated that I was in the middle of making a mixed crochet and Oya doily.  Well, Its done!  And doesn't it look mighty fine?  Each has 5 rows of crochet and then 6 oya petals which are all joined to each other.  I much prefer mixing crochet with oya to make doilies than starting off in the traditional way, as this takes forever and I get bored.  I'll make one one day though, I always like to try things atleast once.  This took me a while to complete, by the 5th motif I was getting drained, because as I said previously each petal has to be worked up individually.  I'm going to put this one up on etsy sometime and see how it goes, although I should make some more in different styles for the market stall that I hope to have sometime this year!

Enjoy your day! Thanks for reading!

It's lovely. Will it be OK if I try to make a similar one? I've started with cotton thread, and I think you use the silk one...

Thanks Kim!

Piwonia: cotton thread will distort when washed and you'll have to block it to keep its shape. I use only nylon thread for all of my igne oyasi projects. And of course you can try this design out, let me know how it goes.
