 Pineapple Doily

      from 1954

Convert this pattern to knit
The pineapple motif is a favorite with everyone.  Crochet this set for buffet or vanity or use the pieces separately.  The model was made of number 30 thread and a size 12 steel crochet hook.  White, ecru or a color would be pretty.  The long doily measures about 17 inches in length; the round doily is 10 inches across.  For a larger piece use heavier thread and a larger size crochet hook.

Abbreviations: Ch (chain);  St (stitch);  sl st (slip stitch);  sk (skip);  sp (space);  lp (loop);
SC (single crochet);  dc (double crochet);  tr (treble) -thread over twice,  work off 2 lps at a time;  rnd (round);  p (picot).
