All I get are reward pages. Cannot see doily pattern. VERY FRUSTRATING.

Hi there, I'm not sure what you mean when you say you're only seeing reward pages. Are you on a phone or computer? I pulled up the page on my phone but wasn't able to replicate the problem. If you'd like, I can include the direct URL for the doily you're interested in, and that might help. Let me know how this sounds. Thank you!

These doily patterns are very beautiful! It looks easy and yes, they do not cost much yarn. I think these patterns look best for coasters. Using different colors of doily patterns will make your dining table look vintage yet elegant. You can also make these for gift giving or maybe as a souvenir. Very nice as Christmas gift for your lady boss!

These are so cute and I will be using them to teach crochet to my friends. They will like them and they will make up quickly which gives them satisfaction and confidence. I love their excitement when a pattern come see together for them. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Those are very nice and easy projects if you are new at crocheting doilies, or using thread for the first time.Though,I would say that the pinapple doily is a bit more difficult and personally I would say is for intermeddiate. I like to use diffrent colors when I make doilies, it gives all new expression to the project. I nver tried the giant doily project planning on it though.

I have just finished my first Doily ..Yeah.. im so happy with it thank you :)

I would appreciate your wonderful art works.Thank you. Zarah from

looking forward to making these patterns,thanks.

When I run pattern off the reading is backwards. Does anyone understand why?

Everytime I run pattern off on printer, the reading is backwards. I don't understand why.

I have crocheted several #5 doilies and in different colors. Besides being an easy pattern they are also fast and make great gifts.

I love the doily's if patterns were included, it would help!!

if you will click on the pattern name, it will pop up the pcture and instructions. No diagrams. just written instruction.
