Crocheted Five-Swan Symphony Doily... we made it...

Thanks to the pattern idea from this website...

I was searching for an idea for the Fiber Arts contest and stumbled upon the free pattern and instructions provided by the website for Swan Symphony Doilies. Based on the idea, I have made my pattern for a three dimensional five swan symphony doily. As I was  new to crocheting, struggled with the hook and thread for a whole day, when my daughter came to my rescue. Thanks to her, we could make this in time. She is also not an expert on crocheting, but somehow manged to help me out with this design.

The total length of this doily is 70 centimeters, center piece measuring about 30 centimeters and each swan is of 20 centimeters in length.

I am not familiar with much of the technical terms used in crocheting, Kindly bear with me...

Step 1: Materials

Being semi-rural, we do not have much choice in selecting the material. We went to a store which sells craft materials and bought the following items:

  • Cashmilon yarn 6 rolls of white color, five for the swans and one for the center piece
  • Cashmilon yarn one roll of red color for edge of center piece, bottom of neck and beak of swans
  • Crochet hook two pieces (one is enough, but we bought two). They were marked as 13 on the sides and it was the only size available
  • A bundle of cotton from a medical store (required for stuffing the swans' neck and beak)

Please make sure to buy the required colors of yarn to finish the piece at one time (with some allowance). Or otherwise you may find it difficult to get the matching colored yarns latter.
