Blocking and Finishing



It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the doily to be lightly stiffened. Soak the doily and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the doily working from the center out to the edges. Allow the doily to dry completely before removing the pins.






Starting Round 20


1- With the wrong side of the doily facing up, join the thread around the post of center dc of any 15 dc group on Round 18.  Ch 1 and FPsc around the same st.

2- FPsc around each of next 7 dc on Round 18.  Skip the next FPdc decrease.  FPsc around each of the next 5 dc.

3- Ch 7.

4- Turn your work over so the right side is now facing up.


Round 20 continued

1- Skip the next 9 sc, sc in the next sc, slip st in the next sc.

2- ch 1 and turn your work back over so that the wrong side is facing up.

3- 11 dc in the ch-7 space just made.

4- FPsc around each of next 2 dc on Round 18.   

For the remainder of the round repeat from  to ★ 15 times-

 [FPsc, ch 3, FPsc] around next dc, FPsc around each of next 7 dc, skip next FPdc decrease, sc in each of next 5 dc, ch 7, turn, skip next 9 sc, sc in next sc, slip st in next sc, ch 1, turn, 11 sc in next ch-7 space, FPsc around each of next 2 dc on Round 18, repeat from  around, FPsc around next dc, above the first FPsc made, ch 1, hdc in first FPsc to make last ch-3 space.


Rounds 25 to 31, left side of the pineapple only

This is optional if you prefer the look of the pineapple in the photo on the right, though it is a little bit more work.  The steps on how to do this are shown below.  You can also do this with the smaller pineapples if you like :)



FPdc twice around next FPdc, making the second FPdc behind the first.  It helps to make the FPdc stitches on the left side of the pineapple look the same as the FPdc stitches on the right side.  

1- After completing the last sc of the pineapple, FPdc around the next FPdc.

2- yo, and pull the FPdc just made to the front so you can work behind it.  Insert hook from front to back around the post of the same st as the last FPdc made.

3- Yo and pull up a loop.  (3 loops on hook).

4 and 5- [yo, and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice to compete the second FPdc.  



Sc in same dc and FPdc around same dc on Round 33

1- Ch 3 to start the round.

2- FPdc around the next dc.

3- Pull the FPdc just made to the side and working in the same dc make a sc.

4- continue the round with- [ch 1, sc in next dc] 4 times.

 5- FPdc around the post of the same dc as the last sc made.

6- dc in the next dc.

Charming Heart Motif


Happy new year!  Today I'm sharing the pattern for these little hearts :D  They measure about 2" in diameter.  Materials you'll need are a small amount of size 3 crochet thread and a 3.25 mm hook.

  The main stitches used are front post and back post double crochet stitches.  This pattern is worked in rows.  After completing rows 1-4, chain 2 and turn your work over.  At the end of row 5, chain 4 and turn your work over. 

For the hearts pictured I used Aunt Lydias size 3 cotton crochet thread in the colors- white, maize, warm rose, lime, warm teal, warm blue, plum, and purple, and natural.  

This pattern has 7 rows.  Finished size is about 2" in diameter.  Pattern is written using U.S. Terminology.  A printer friendly version with fewer pictures is available here- https://www.draiguna.com/p/charming-heart-motif-printer-friendly.html.

Blocking and Finishing

It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the doily to be lightly stiffened. Soak the doily and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the doily working from the center out to the edges. Allow the doily to dry completely before removing the pins.







sc decrease on Round 11

1- insert hook into next sc (first sc of the next 4-sc group).
2- yo and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook).
3- skip next 2 sc and insert hook into next sc (last sc of the 4-sc group).
4- yo and pull up a loop.
5- yo and draw through all 3 loops on the hook.


triple picot on Round 12

1- ch 4.
2- slip st in fourth ch from hook.
3- ch 7.
4- slip st in seventh ch from hook.
5- ch 4.
6- slip st in fourth ch from hook.
7- slip st in the last dc made to complete the triple picot.


Congratulations on your finished doily!  I hope that you enjoyed this pattern! :D
