Pineapple Doily, 1946 Model made by Steph Thornton. Steph's Notes: I used Twilleys Southern Comfort thread in a variegated purple/lilac/white colourway. The pattern is made up of pineapples and shells, and ends up as an unusual diamond shape. Valerie's Notes: The instructions indicate that the doily measures 10 x 14", but it was smaller when I crocheted it. It has a very beautiful diamond shape -- starting with a circular pattern in the center, then radiating with 8 pineapples.
