Picot Mesh Shawl design started with me spotting the beautiful sparkling yarn ball on the shelf of my crafts store and not being able to leave it there. It was Lion Brand Summer Nights Blue Lagoon!

Here is a truly vintage crochet doily pattern from 1846. I call it the “waves doily” because the edge reminds me of rolling ocean waves.

This striped Nautical Towel makes a nice handmade addition and adds a pop of color to your kitchen. You will learn or practice three different techniques. First, the towel is made with corner-to-corner (aka C2C) technique which means working the piece in diagonal rows, increasing on first half and decreasing on second half. Second, the look and texture of the towel is created by moss stitch which is a simple pattern of single crochets and chains. And third, changing the two colors of yarn after each two rows gives the towel its nice contrast stripes.
I renamed this doily Beach Doily after using the vibrant beachy colors of white, aqua and orange. But it also looks great in white and navy blue as a Marine Doily to give your room the extra touch of nautical vibes. It is easy to crochet.
