Pineapple Bloom doily

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!  Sorry, but I was really lazy in posting a Thanksgiving wish up front.  No excuse except laziness!  This year our wedding anniversary fell on Thanksgiving day....46 years.

This doily is called Pineapple Bloom and was designed by Patricia Kristoffersen.  It can be found in the publication Absolutely Gorgeous Doilies.  It was made with #20 thread using a #10 hook and measures 16 inches. 

I did change the last round to a simple round of single crochet stitches with picots, which I like much better.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Blooming Pineapple Doily

This pattern can be found in a couple of foreign magazines called Moje Robotki, 12/2009 issue, and Sabrina Rob√≥tki, 6/2005 issue.  I've made it twice before.  The second one I made in April of this year didn't block correctly.  I couldn't figure out why, since the one I had originally made in July 2011 blocked perfectly.  When I started this one (which was a special request), I realized double crochet stitches changed to triple crochet stitches at a certain point.  I didn't pick up on this with the 2nd doily I made, thus my problem.

This one was made with #20 thread using a #12 hook and measures 18 inches.

Thanks for stopping by, and God Bless!

Vintage Pineapple Doily

This doily really doesn't have an appropriate name in the vintage publication it came from, so I call it "Vintage Pineapple Doily".  It was made with LizBeth #20 thread using a #10 hook and measures 18 inches across.  It was a special request in white.  I had made this one several years ago in color.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you have not done so and are qualified to vote in the USA, be sure you do so TODAY!!

Double Pineapple Doily

I've made this doily in years past.  This one in ecru and small thread was a "special request".  It was made with #30 thread using a #12 hook and measures 16.5 inches.  It comes from the vintage book Sparkling White Doilies, Star Doily Book 91.  You can find the pattern HERE for free.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed Wednesday and the remainder of the week!
