Eversong


This pineapple doily is easy to make and uses just basic crochet stitches!  There are  22 rounds and the finished size measures about 11” in diameter.  This tutorial has a photo for every round and instructions for the more difficult stitches.  For the doily pictured I used Knit Picks Curio size 10 cotton crochet thread in the color Clementine.

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.
