15 Decorative Doily Crochet Patterns to Liven Up Your Living Space

227 Shares

Let’s make doilies a thing again! I’m telling you that Grandma had the right idea all along. Seriously, handmade doilies are ridiculously versatile. You can use them as hot pads to protect your table from scorch marks or put them under plant pots to soak up extra water. They also look great hanging up on the wall or as a centerpiece underneath candles or a vase. But wait there’s more! You can also use them as placemats or table settings. You can even use them as rugs if you make them big enough! On top of all these practical uses, they are also just plain pretty to look at. Instantly add pizzazz to an entryway table or nightstand. Fancy up the coffee table or decorate your dining area. The possibilities are endless!

The Frost Nova doily is a kaleidoscope of shapes. There are a lot of things that remind me of snowflakes in this design, so I can see why it is called Frost Nova. You’ll notice that there is also a round of pineapple motifs.

This rug is a total statement piece that will surely garner lots of compliments! The light monochrome makes me think of a snowflake, but I could also totally see this as a sun in bright yellow or orange. Maybe for baby’s nursery?!

5. Gift Bag Doily

Designer: Brenda Stratton for Talking Crochet

Hold a gift bag closed in style- and keep the contents a secret – with this marvelous gift bag doily. Unlike wasteful tissue paper, this doily can be used over and over again. This piece would look extra festive in bright colors or shiny metallic thread!

6. Pansy Doily

Pansy Doily - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: Sweet Home by Lulu

Doilies don’t have to be monochrome. This Pansy Doily is a lovely example of how adding color into your piece can transform the whole look. The design for the pansies is spot on and the alternating blue and yellow colors really make this doily stand out.

7. Doily Amal

Designer: Lena Masterica

Do something different! A square doily shape is very refreshing and looks great! Plus, this square doily pattern uses more textured and solid stitches vs the traditional lacey and open stitches. But wait there’s more – the designer also chose non-traditional doily colors – purple and grey – to great effect!

8. Andromeda Doily

Andromeda Doily - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: Virklust

Feast your eyes on the beautiful Andromeda Doily. The beautiful shaping on this design reminds me of a cat’s eye. It is so refreshing to see a doily in a shape that isn’t round and you can tell that the colors have been chosen with a keen designer’s eye. Simply lovely!

9. Arcanoweave

Arcanoweave - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: Draiguna

I never knew how badly I wanted to make a purple doily until I saw this one! Arcanoweave (such a creative name!) is the 2nd part of a magnificent doily design worked in 3 parts. The thing that really stands out about this one for me is the cable work in the first few rows of the lighter purple color. Wow, just wow!

10. July Mandala

July Mandala - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: Lifestyle by Ella

You can try a lot of different doily techniques in this sampler-style mandala. I love all the shapes in this one – ovals for the flower petals, squares, and diamonds too! The repeating pattern of colors – pink, green, yellow, and blue – really helps to pull the design together.

11. Square Lace Doily

Square Lace Doily - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: Handmade by Raine

Who knew that doilies could be square? I love the X in the middle of the square and the contrasting white color on the last round. The best part about this splendid square lace doily design is that you can easily make it as big or as small as you’d like!

12. Seashell Doily

Seashell Doily - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: Handmade by Raine

I can’t get enough of this stunning seashell doily! It’s made with a technique called fractal crochet (sometimes called math-based crochet) which sounds super intimidating but it’s really just double crochet and chain stitches. I think this design would also look splendid in green because it reminds me of a palm frond.

13. Doily with Tulips

Doily with Tulips - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: Marifu6a

A pretty wheel of tulips might be wishful thinking this time of year but, hey, maybe it will help spring get here sooner! This classic white doily with tulips would make an excellent addition to your collection and it looks great in bright pink too.

14. Susie Doily

Susie Doily - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: Irina Maleeva

Maybe I’m just hungry but the middle of this attractive doily looks like a pizza to me. Or maybe a pie. Either way, I really like how different and unique the Susie Doily is. The last few rows are particularly striking, with all those spokes.

15. Pink Pineapple Doily

Pink Pineapple Doily - Easy Crochet Doily Patterns for Beginners

Designer: American Thread Company

With size 30 thread and a #12 hook, this showstopping piece measures 11 ½ inches across. The pink pineapple doily is also lovely in white and other colors. One of the projects on Ravelry uses gold and red thread and it’s really quite something!
