The pattern of this crochet doily, table placemat or coaster ( it is your choise :) ) I found in a Spanish crochet magazine. I think that this is a perfect gift idea for someone special. You can use that doily as a table decoration, as a coaster, or it can be put in a frame for a wall decor - as I already said - the choice is all yours.
I made this beautiful doily with cotton crochet thread No 40 and No 8 ( 1.25 mm ) steel crochet hook. The finished size is 10 inches wide and 9 inches height.
