Apple Doily

I know this is belated, but HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!!! :)

Again, I was hit by an urge to crochet a doily, and I found this free pattern on Ravelry. :D

This doily can be worked up in just a few hours, and I'm sure it would make a nice gift for teachers. This year, I'm my son's teacher so this doily is for myself. Ha!

I also recently found many beautiful doilies some skilled crocheters made on Flickr, and I was off to my local craft store right away to buy some thread in pretty colors. :) Now I'm on the hunt for beautiful variegated thread!

I feel the joy of crochet the most from using #10 thread and little hooks. How about you? :) More doilies to follow... I think. :D

I love to look at the results of thread crochet but it makes me slightly crazy when I do any myself! Love your doily - very pretty :-)

I love your Apple doily. I would love to make one myself, but I can not get the free pattern anywhere. Every site is down. Can you share your copy.

Thanks

I have to say this apple doily is a fun pattern. I have made it now in cream with red apples... I've done beige with red apples... and I've also done black with red apples... the newest version is green apples.... I've also used two different shades of green for the leaves on the beige and cream doily. Thank you so much for posting this doily. I'll be making more.
