Description

Designer Ann White of Bella Crochet (bellacrochet.blogspot.com) designed the Trick or Treat Doily to accompany another Halloween-themed doily in her design collection. Suzann Thompson crocheted the doily in 2019 with No. 10 crochet cotton from her collection (another term for "stash"). She said that watching the pleats form was fun. They fall into place naturally when you have finished three or four rounds. The first round of the lacy border more-or-less locks the pleats in place. Suzann starches doilies with a mixture of one part liquid starch and one part water. Suzann and her daughters enjoy creating holiday displays on the family's sideboard. It's a good excuse to clean off the items that mysteriously accumulate there in-between times.
