  1. Very pretty. I love variegated yarn, too.

    1. Thanks! I recently ran across this and the bath mat pattern and realized I'd forgotten to post them.

  2. Your doily is very lovely and the color is wonderful... I also just notice your Tulip Stitch cloth. I am going to give a go. Thanks for sharing your patterns. I would also like to wish you and your family a Very Happy Easter Holiday. hugs Judy

  3. Thank you, Judy! I hope you enjoy the Tulip Stitch Cloth.

  4. Your doilies are so nice! My mom made an afghan using the popcorn stitch and I love it.

    Have a great weekend!


  5. Thanks, Vicki! I bet your mom's afghan is gorgeous.

  6. Toni, The yellows and greens remind me of my Nana who lived in Jackson, Mississippi. Very pretty work and tension on your yarn. I have never made a doily...but I am working on some booties :)

  7. Thank you, Jacqueline! I hope you'll post a picture of the booties when you're finished with them.

  8. Oh, nice doily! Thank you very much for sharing, I love those popcorn stitches and how they make the fabric thick enough to hold a hot teapot. Needless to say, I have to give it a try even if I don't have a teapot! (I am a tea bag user) ;-)

    Happy Resurrection Day!

  9. Hi Alhana! I use some loose tea, but I'm a teabag user, too! It's all good. *chuckles* Glad you like the doily.

  10. I can't comment on the bathmat post, but I would love for my daughter to make one of long do you suppose it would take to knit this up?

  11. Hi Jacqueline,
    I knitted this bath mat in a few weeks working on it for a while each day. It knits up fairly quickly since it's made holding two strands of yarn together. I hope your daughter enjoys knitting it. :)

  12. Oh~ that is beautiful!!!
    Teach me to crochet... puhleeeze? :)

  13. I'm working on this and have run into a couple of problems. It may just be me but......
    In Rnd 9 do you sl st in the loop on each side of the popcorn and work 2 dc in the sl st?
    And in Rnd 10 it says to sl st in 3rd dc but there aren't 3 dc groups in Rnd 9 and it says to sl st between the sc sts and there aren't 2 scs together in Rnd 9 so I'm confused. You can reply to me at butterflycrochet at


  14. Wanda, just follow the directions in US stitches and it will be fine.


Thank you for your comments!
