Do you secretly love old doilies? Well, my secret’s out, I do; but what I am I going to do with a bunch of doilies? I’m not too into tablecloths or jar covers. Then that magic crochet bug hit me, dissect them! What I found is a deep love for the intricate edgings. Go on check them out. They are amazing. Immediately I thought, BELT! The stitch pattern below is an edging that has been around for over a hundred years, but in this setting you take all the fuddy-duddy out and are left with a great belt. Very Bohemian, very hip, very now. So next time grandma wants to give you another doily, say, thanks! And start imagining all that you can re-create with it.
