Welcome to the January Doily of the Month! Each month in 2016 we will share a new doily pattern for you to crochet in Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread. We challenged the top doily designers to create innovate designs that coordinate with the feeling of each month. Plus, every month we will select five winners to receive an Aunt Lydia’s prize pack.
For January, we have a Snowflake Doily with a wintry color scheme. The doily has six points, but the color changes make the focus on it circular.
