Every Wednesday in October we'll work on a doily decoration, Marsha Glassner's "Boo!" pattern, available as a free download on Ravelry. The pattern uses #10 crochet thread and a #7 (1.65 mm) hook, but many of us plan to use #3 crochet thread and a D (3.5 mm) or E (3.75 mm) hook which will create a larger project.
