A Nice Small Valentine Doily To Crochet!

Here is a little doily that won't take forever to crochet! Make them in different colors and use them as hanging decorations, or as little Valentine coasters.

The name relates to the little popcorn "hearts" tucked into the design, almost like a little secret. I think the most fun thing about this dolly is how the edges fool with your eyes! There are only four major hearts, but their edges depend on how you look at them. It was one of those happy accidents I guess.

Mine is done in smaller thread, size 20. Try crocheting it in size 10 or size 3 thread. Aunt Lydia's has a new thread called Baker's Cotton and it comes in a pink/white variegate and a red/white variegate that would look so cute in this pattern!

Whatever you decide to use, I hope you'll have fun crocheting several!

What You Will Need

Small amount of crochet thread in desired size and color.

I used Lizbeth size 20 in red/white for one version with a size 8 hook.

I used DMC size 10 cotton with a size 7 hook for the main photo.

A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...

You may use different yarns such as scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.

I own and love every size of this crochet hook. They allow me to keep crocheting despite severe arthritis in my hands.

I own and love this yarn cutting pendant! It's so handy when I'm working in stripes and have to cut yarn frequently! No more searching for where I laid the scissors!

I recently purchased this for myself. It's handy to know how much yarn a given project requires when you're going to be making more than one!

This is so much more attractive than what I used for years, a 3 pound coffee can with a hole cut in the plastic lid! Anybody testify? Bonus... this won't snag your thread, either.


A Note From Your Designer...

Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila
