Small Purple Doily Free Vintage Pattern


I made this doily following a vintage pattern from Pineapple Pageant Book No. 252 by the Spool Cotton Company, 1948. 






I'm trying to use up every small amount of yarn and thread that I have. So I used leftover dark purple crochet cotton thread size ten. Unfortunately I didn't have enough, so I finished my doily with a lilac color thread.

My doily measures 10 inches in diameter. I used 1.25 mm hook. 



The flowers in these photos are from my Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow shrub (Brunfelsia Pauciflora), which is in full bloom right now. The flowers start dark purple, then change color to lilac, and eventually white, resulting in a beautiful display of flowers in three colors. 


Starting at center, ch 10. Join with sl st to form ring. 
1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 dc in ring. Sl st in top of ch-3. 

2nd rnd: Ch 6, holding back on hook the last loop of each tr tr make tr tr in next 2 dc, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (cluster made), * ch 9, sc in 5th ch from hook (picot made), ch 4, make a 3-tr tr cluster over next 3 dc. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-4 with sl st to tip of first cluster. 

3rd rnd: Sl st to center of next picot, in same picot make sc, ch 7 and sc; * ch 4, picot, ch 4, in next picot make sc, ch 7 and sc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 4, sl st in first sc. 

4th rnd: Sl st in next 3 ch, sl st in same loop, ch 3, in same loop make dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (shell made); * ch 5, in next picot make 2 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (another shell made); ch 5, shell in next ch-7 loop. Repeat from * around. Join. 

5th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, ch 3, in same sp make dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (shell made over shell); * ch 4, in sp of next shell make (dc, ch 2) 4 times and dc; ch 4, shell over next shell. Repeat from * around. Join. 

6th rnd: * Make shell over shell as before, ch 5, 5 dc in next ch-2 sp, drop loop from hook, insert hook in first dc of the 5-dc group and draw dropped loop through (pc st made); (ch 2, make a pc st in next ch-2 sp) 3 times; ch 5. Repeat from * around. Join.
  
7th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, ch 3, in same sp make dc, ch 2 and 2 dc; * ch 5, make a pc st in next ch-2 sp, (ch 2, pc st in next ch-2 sp) twice; ch 5, in sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc. Repeat from * around. Join. 

8th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in sp, ch 3 and complete a shell in same sp, * ch 5, make a pc st in next ch-2 sp, ch 2, pc st in next ch-2 sp, (ch 5, shell in next ch-2 sp) twice. Repeat from * around. Join. 
9th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 5, sc in ch-2 sp between pc sts, ch 5, shell over shell, ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5. Repeat from * around. Join. 

10th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 5, sc in next sc, ch 5, shell over shell, (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice; ch 5. Repeat from * around. Join. 

11th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 2, shell over shell, (ch 6, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 6. Repeat from * around. Join.

12th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in sp, sc in same sp, * shell in next sp (between shells), sc in sp of next shell, (ch 7, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 7, sc in sp of next shell. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, tr in first sc. 

13th rnd: * Ch 8, sc in 5th ch from hook (picot made), ch 3, sc in next ch-7 loop. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, sl st in tr.

  1. This is truly exquisite Olga! And I have to say I am happy you ran out and needed to finish up with the lighter color because I love the contrast.

  5. Your doily is lovely and reminds me of grandmother's house. She was an avid crocheter and made so many wonderful things. Now my daughter has taken the baton... Thank you for sharing with us on the Art of Home-Making Mondays. We are glad to have you :)

  6. Hi, loving this doily and thank you for sharing. I am wondering if you can help me with
    the pattern please? For my sins (lol) I am English, so have to translate instructions
    from American to English, usually not a problem but I am lost on Round two. Round One reads - 1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 dc in ring. Sl st in top of ch-3.
    Round Two reads - 2nd rnd: Ch 6, holding back on hook the last loop of each tr tr make tr tr in next 2 dc,
    I presume you mean the first row to read 23 tr tr in ring, not 23 dc . Yours gratefully, one very confused, stupid, ederly english person...lol

    1. Hi,
      Yes, in British/English terminology the first round would be: 23 tr in ring.
      But I'm not sure what tr tr would be in British/English terminology. It's basically a tall stitch like tr, but you'll make yarn over hook four times.
      I hope this makes sense.
