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 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, 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 doily 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 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 doily into a giant doily rug by using clothesline rope, just like the one I did before.

Notes

When cleaning is required, rinse doily in lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. If you wish to starch, spray starch and a warm iron may be used while the doily is still damp.

Round 8 calls for 1+15+1 puff stitches, so 17 instead of the 16 the photos show and I can't quite figure out how to move on to round 9 since my 8th would have one puff too many if I ended it on one

Craft Passion

Wednesday 25th of August 2021

There are only (15 + 1) 16 puff stitches on Round 8.

Hi, I finished my first ever doily in 2 colors as said earlier. Thanks a ton for helping me with the mistake I made wrt 'shell'. I have now started to make one more for a friend. But she wants of size 17" diameter. I thought of repeating rounds 8 to 12 again. At the end of round 12 I started again with round 8. What I found was that it started to curl upwards so to flatten it I chained 7 instead of 6 for rounds 10 to 12 in the repeat sequence. It did flatten somehow. But again keeping the 13th row as per the pattern it started curling up again. Can you please suggest what should i do. How do i increase 14" to 17" diameter?

What kind of yarn is thread yarn? Can I use Sugar n’ Cream yarn?

Craft Passion

Sunday 1st of November 2020

I used cotton lace yarn which is thinner than normal yarn and it is specially made for doily crochet. You may use other yarn but the size will be varying based on the weight of the yarn.
