Description: The Crochet Tulip Doily is a delightful and intricate piece that combines the charm of tulip flowers with the elegance of a doily. This pattern is perfect for intermediate to experienced crocheters who are looking to create a stunning decorative item for their home or as a thoughtful gift.


  • Crochet thread or yarn (size may vary based on your preference)
  • Crochet hook (size will depend on the thread/yarn chosen)
  • Stitch markers
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle

Finished Size: The finished size of the doily can vary depending on the type of yarn/thread and hook you choose. Generally, it will be around 12 to 18 inches in diameter.


  1. Begin with a magic ring or chain 6 and join to form a ring.
  2. Work a series of chains and double crochets into the ring to create the starting circle.
  3. Start the tulip motifs by crocheting small clusters of stitches that resemble the tulip petals. These will be staggered around the circle.
  4. As you progress, add leaves using a combination of chains and single crochet stitches.
  5. Continue building the tulip motifs and leaves in concentric circles, making sure to space them evenly.
  6. The center of the doily can have more intricate tulip details, and you can gradually transition to simpler designs as you move towards the outer edges.
  7. Finish off the pattern with a decorative border that complements the overall design. This could involve picot stitches, scallops, or any other edging pattern you prefer.

Finishing: Weave in any loose ends using a tapestry needle and trim excess yarn/thread. Gently block the finished doily to give it a neat and even shape.
