This crochet wall hanging was inspired by a vintage doily pattern that is in the public domain that was listed on FreeVintageCrochet.com. The original pattern, Straw Doily, is from Lily Mills Company Modern Crochet Book 75.
I know people hate using stitch markers, but they really help with this pattern for keeping track of the first stitch of each round and for the counting when the count starts getting well over 100 in the later rounds of the pattern.
I used Lion Brand Summer Nights Yarn in the color Cast Away, a 3 mm hook, and a 12-inch metal hoop in this pattern. You can use any super fine yarn, but 10 inch hoop seems to be the biggest hoop I could get this to attach to with the number of rounds in this. If you want to go bigger you might have to increase the number of rounds and do another criss-cross section.
- Super Fine (1) Weight Yarn (about 110 yards) – Used in the pictured model: Lion Brand Summer Nights Yarn in the color Cast Away
- 3.00 mm crochet hook
- 12-inch metal hoop
- Yarn needle to weave in ends.
- Stitch Markers
12 inches in diameter
This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
Initial chains in rounds count as a stitch unless otherwise noted.
If you don’t want to start with a Magic Circle, a ch 3 or ch 4 loop should work.

Rnd 21: In this round, you will be attaching this to the metal hoop. To attach to the hoop you will do a sc in each sc and ch space of round 20. To do this, initially lay the yarn over the top of the ring, after inserting the hook into the stitch put your hook through the hoop and yarn over by grabbing the yarn that is on the front of the hoop from behind the hoop and pull through a loop, then yarn over again for the last part of the sc by grabbing the yarn from behind the hoop.
