Mint Pineapples Doily, Free Vintage Doily Pattern




I used 1.25 mm steel hook and Aunt Lydia's crochet thread size 10. 

My doily came out 16 inches across. When I was making it, after the 11th round it began to ruffle quite a bit. But once I finished the doily and blocked it, it turned out perfectly flat and beautiful. 

The vintage pattern is from Hand Crochet by Roayl Society, Crisp New Doilies Book No 9, 1948.

1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 dc in ring. Join with sl st to 3rd st of ch-3.

6th rnd: Ch 3, holding back on hook the last loop of each dc, make dc in next 7 dc, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (cluster made), * ch 7, sc in next sp, ch 7, make a cluster as before over next 8 dc. Repeat from * around. Join.

7th rnd: Sl st to center of loop, sc in same loop, * ch 7, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join.

8th rnd: Ch 4, holding back on hook the last loop of each tr make a 3-tr cluster in same place as sl st, ch 4, make another 3-tr cluster in same place as last cluster was made, * ch 7, in next sc make cluster, ch 4 and cluster. Repeat from * around. Join.

9th rnd: Sl st to center of next sp, sc in same sp, * ch 5, in center st of next chain make dc, ch 3 and dc (shell made); ch 5, sc in next sp. Repeat from * around. Join.

10th rnd: Sl st in next 2 ch, sc in next ch, * ch 3, shell in sp of next shell (shell made over shell); (ch 3, sc in center st of next ch-5) twice. Repeat from * around. Join.

11th rnd: Sl st in next 3 ch, in next dc and in sp of shell, ch 6, dc in same sp (starting shell made over shell), * ch 3, skip ch-3 sp, 8 tr in next sp, ch 3, shell over shell. Repeat from * around. Join.

12th rnd: Sl st in next sp, * shell over shell, ch 3, (tr in next tr, ch 1) 7 times; tr in next tr, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.

13th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 3, sc in next tr, (ch 4, sc in next tr) 7 times; ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.

14th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 3, sc in ch-4 loop, (ch 4, sc in next loop) 6 times; ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.

15th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 3, sc in ch-4 loop, (ch 4, sc in next loop) 5 times; ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.

16th rnd: Sl st in next sp, ch 6, in sp of same shell make dc, ch 3 and dc (2 shells made); * ch 3, sc in ch-4 loop, (ch 4, sc in next loop) 4 times; ch 3, in sp of next shell make (dc, ch 3) twice and dc (2 shells made). Repeat from * around. Join.

17th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 3, shell over next shell, ch 3, sc in next loop, (ch 4, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.

  6. In round 22 what does the "R" mean where it says "(make R 3-tr cluster in next dc)?
