This puff stitch Pineapple Doily crochet pattern is another long overdue pattern I have been wanted to share here. I have developed the pattern in both written and chart form, hope to fulfill the wish of my readers who can read one or the other form of patterns.
A little flashback on the past of this puff stitch Pineapple Doily…. I completed it in 2014, but it took me more than one and half year to figure out if I should share the pattern in written crochet instruction or crochet chart, blame my indecisiveness, I procrastinated. Both pattern instructions are not easy to develop; written pattern can be confusing and I have to be very careful, chart pattern needs time to draw and develop. I ended up set the Pineapple Doily aside and move on with my other crafts.
I took out the puff stitch Pineapple Doily again early this year, thinking that it is a waste not to share the pattern of this beautiful Pineapple Doily with you. I have put quite a significant time on the design, I even crochet a few of them to try out which one looks the best. The puff stitches design in the Pineapple Doily gives the doily a more exquisite texture presence. Take a closer look on both top and bottom doilies, both of them has a slight difference (except the colorwork)…. The puff stitches at the middle of the both doilies are at different round. This Pineapple Doily is well adaptive, you can make puff stitches in any round at the middle of the doily, you can also replace the puff stitch with other similar stitches, eg, bobble and popcorn stitch. Colorwork is another way to make your Pineapple Doily unique.
The puff stitch I crochet in this Pineapple Doily is a slight variation from what’s commonly done by others. I find that it gives a more defined oval shaped puff pellete to the Pineapple Doily. Please read more in the pattern & tutorial page on how I crochet it.
Love the heirloom look that the Pineapple Doily gave, it simply brightens up the table gracefully and tastefully. Afternoon tea, please!!!
p/s: I think it could be a great idea to crochet this pineapple doily into giant doily rug by using clothesline rope, just like the one I did before.
