This terrific crochet doily pattern was originally published in Woman's Day Magazine in the 1980s. It is still a cute crochet pattern for use in contemporary homes and can be found free online from LaceCrochet on Flickr. The best part about this one is that the roses protrude with a bit of 3d appeal while the heart doily itself lies flat. It is a great conversation piece. Make it all in one color as shown or make the roses stand out even more from the background by changing colors.
