Please Note: This listing is for a PDF crochet pattern to make the doily pictured, not the finished item. You will be able to download your pattern directly from Etsy immediately after purchase. This pattern is written in English and uses standard American crochet terminology. No other versions of the pattern are available (no graphs, videos or translations.)
I know I am not the only crocheter who loves hummingbirds; I have lost count of the number of requests I have received for hummingbird designs! I made many versions of this doily, trying to create one that combined all the elements of summer that I love the most. In addition to the busy little hummingbirds, I wanted it to include cheerful roses and colorful, fluttering butterflies. And of course, I had to include some lacy pineapples for the background! After many attempts, I finally came up with a design that combined them all in a way that truly pleased me. Here, then, at last, is the doily I dreamed of; I hope you will like it! As a special thank you gift, I will be including a copy of the pdf pattern for my "Lacy Fan" doily with each purchase (see last picture.) This doily displays beautifully when stiffened and mounted in a vintage frame! I will also be including a tutorial on how to make an Eyelet Foundation, which is used in the doily pattern.
This pattern is in PDF format so you will need to be able to open Adobe Acrobat, and prints out to 14 pages. I use a large font for easier reading and add lots of pictures.
