Boo! by Marsha Glassner and some vintage yarn

It’s October! It’s officially autumn, and it’s officially cold here in Bulgaria. At least in the mornings, where I take my son to kindergarten at 0 C, but oh well, I get back from work at 20 C. It’s weird πŸ˜€ But I can wear my sweaters.
We do not celebrate Halloween in Bulgaria, but I just couldn’t resist when I saw Marsha Glassner’s Boo! pattern. It’s so cute!
So I dropped all the other projects and started it. I used Bulgarian crochet cotton and a 1.6mm Tulip hook.

Boo! is a very nice pattern. I found it relatively easy and fast to crochet. I had some issues in the last few rows where I had to make the heads round, but it’s probably not an issue with the pattern itself, but with me, because I am not the most experienced crocheter around.


I got the yarn from my auntie, it was my grandmother’s, but my grandma does not crochet or knit any more, so the yarn came to me as the only person who does fibre crafts in the family.

The threads vary from very fine to not so fine:D They have numbers, I guess that’s the weight, but I am not sure if it’s the same system all around the world. Anyway, the threads I have, are from 10 to 80. I also have some threads that are already started and a few color ones, very fine. I thought I could do micro crochet, but I have to think of interesting projects in micro crochet.

    That is quite possibly the cutest doily I’ve ever seen. Great job.

      Thank you, Kylie! :)))

    That’s so cute! It took me a second to realize there were ghosts in there, because at first glance it looked like a regular doily. I love the details!
    Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned.

    Ha ha! This is a great doily! Modern perspective in a vintage way!

    How I admire your patience, Mihaela. I love to crochet but I never finished a project with super thin yarn. Hold on, that’s not even true. I did make boho hoop earrings, but that’s not comparable to your darling doily. I am more of a chunky yarn kinda girl, lol.

      Haha, Habiba, I’ve never made earrings πŸ˜€ I have to try, I have a lot of that thin yarn from my grandma :)) I also prefer worsted and up in weight. πŸ˜€

    HELP PLEASE! Do you have any photos to help in crocheting the ghost doily? I am stuck on row 19. It was going along pretty good until rows 18 and 19. I don’t want to have to unravel all my work and give up. It’s taken me a while to get this far. Thanks so much!

      Hi Fran! I am sorry, I don’t have any additional photos. There are a lot of projects on Ravelry, there might be a photo that could help you:
