I really like floral doilies, and wanted to try making my own with a flower in the center. It starts out with a small flower that has 7 rounds, followed by 6 smaller pineapples, and 6 larger pineapples. For the final round I switched to the leaf color, and worked in the back loops only.
The flower I named peacebloom, after the one in World of Warcraft. The doily is 29 rounds and measures about 12 1/2". I used a 1.75 mm hook with Aunt Lydias size 10 thread in the colors ecru and frosty green. The pattern for the flower and doily will be available soon!
