Crochet Pineapple Doily Pattern

Posted on Last updated: /

Crochet doilies are one of the popular crochet patterns many will want to make for their home. I started crocheting with lace thread when I learned this craft in childhood, and doilies are the first few patterns I made for my home. I especially love the pineapple doily design out of all the crochet doilies I have made. And, today, I am sharing this crochet pineapple doily pattern with you. Read on to learn how to crochet.

This puff stitch Pineapple Doily crochet pattern is another long overdue pattern I have wanted to share here. I have developed the pattern in both written and chart form, hoping to fulfill the wish of my readers who can read one or the other form of crochet patterns.

A little flashback on the past of this puff stitch Pineapple Doily… I completed it some time ago, but it took me more than one and a half years to figure out if I should share the pattern in written crochet instructions or in a crochet chart. Both pattern instructions are not easy to develop; the written pattern can be confusing, so, I have to be very careful. The chart pattern needs time to draw and develop. I ended up setting the Pineapple Doily aside and moving on with my other crafts.

I revisited the puff stitch Pineapple Doily early this year, thinking that it was a waste not to share the crochet pattern of this beautiful Doily with you. I have put quite a significant amount of time into 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 at both the top and bottom of the crochet doilies; both of them have a slight difference (except for the colorwork)… The puff stitches in the middle of both doilies are at different rounds. This crochet doily is well adaptive, and you can make puff stitches in any round at the middle of the doily. You may also replace the puff stitch with other similar stitches, eg, bobble and popcorn stitch. Colorwork is another way to make your crochet doilies unique.

The puff stitch I crocheted in this Pineapple Doily is a slight variation from what’s commonly done by others. I find that it gives more defined oval-shaped puff pellets to the doily. Please read more on the pattern & tutorial section below for details on how I crochet it.

Love the heirloom look of the Pineapple Doily. 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 doily into a giant doily rug by using clothesline rope, just like the one I did before.

On row 9 it says repeat 15 times did you mean to say 31 times I have way too many left after 15

Joanne Loh

Wednesday 21st of February 2024

It is 15 times, as there are 2 set of ch6 loops in each time, 1 loop is sc to the 6chsp and the other in sc to 3chsp.

Wednesday 26th of July 2023

Hello! Great pattern, this is my first intermediate piece and so far I think I'm doing well! Very well-written. I have a question about round 13. Should the repeat * 7 times bring me right back to the start of the prev round? Or should I still have some ch6 sps left so that the rest of rnd 13 can be completed? Hope that makes sense. Thank you!

Craft Passion

Saturday 29th of July 2023

Hi Ella, after the repeat *7 times, you should have another 3 nos. of 6ch sp left for you to complete with the rest of the stitches in round 13.

I don't understand your the directions on round 6 can you please explain. Chain 3 then chain 5 ??

Craft Passion

Wednesday 5th of April 2023

It just means chain 8, I split it into ch3 + ch5 so that the first ch3 is counted as a dc stitch, then you make a ch5 chain space in between the dc sts.
