Easy Pineapple Doily



I came across the pattern for this lovely pineapple doily and couldn’t resist making it (see the pattern here). Besides, I was getting bored with my flower cushion project and I thought I need to crochet something different for a change.





The pattern is very easy, and the doily is quick to make. It took me one evening to make it. In the original pattern, the doily is made in yellow, but I made mine in white.



The roses in the pictures are from my yard. How nice to clip off a few and make a bouquet. Fresh flowers always cheer me up! And that is exactly what I need right now because I have caught a bit of cold. I hope to recover over the next couple of days.



Have a wonderful weekend and don’t get sick!

  4. Nice doily!!:) I too love switching to doilies or something small very often while working on big projects to break the monotony. But that break usually lasts for a long time :)

  5. Ольга, красивая салфетка и как быстро Вы ее связали! Цветы прелестны, а у нас еще только-только травка начинает зеленеть и цветут подснежники :). Желаю здоровья и удачного рукоделия!

  16. The pineapple doily is beautiful! I would love to find the time to make one but I have so much on my plate right now. Perhaps a little later :)

    Just getting your post on Google reader. I never understand why for days it will say I have read all new posts and then it will fill with posts from days ago!

  17. It is so beautiful!!! I have been looking high & low for a large oval pineapple tablecloth pattern. They are nearly impossible to find. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!
