Pink Pineapple Doily Free Crochet Pattern


Hello and Greetings Everyone

I know I haven't been around a lot to post lately but with the holidays, well everyone knows how that goes...

But I am back and I have a new crochet pattern to share, it's called the Pink Pineapple Doily

The original pattern appeared in 1951 in the publication Star Book No. 87, Doilies, Doilies, Doilies.

For a printer friendly and editable version of this post, scroll down to the bottom and click the button that says "Print Friendly."

I am absolutely in love with this doily. It looks like a very complex pattern but if your are just starting to make doilies and other crochet goods this is a great pattern to learn how to read other, more complex patterns.

not in pink.
To complete this pattern you must know the following stitches and I have provided links on how to complete those stitches:

Chain Stitch
Single Crochet Stitch
Double Crochet Stitch 
Treble Crochet Stitch 
Double Crochet Cluster Stitch

This pattern is in the public domain and you are free to post it to your own website.


If you love this pattern make sure to check out the Tea Time Doily I crocheted too.

If you use any of my pictures of this doily, I require you to provide a back link to my website with proper image credits.  Other than that please share away.  Backlinks make my online world go round!
If you do share my pattern, make sure you let me know in the comments or by way of social media so I can add your article to the places I have been featured, a list of links in my sidebar.

You are also free to sell anything you make from this pattern but selling the pattern itself is not allowed.



I changed a couple minor things about the pattern as it is written below.  Around Rows 23 and 24, some of the pattern didn't make sense to me.  I am not sure if it was the way I was reading the pattern or if, by chance, there are typos in the pattern.

I kind of went on my own tangent during these rows so my doily may not look exactly like the original.  I also decided to leave the picots off of my finished doily because mine do not always look the neatest and I wanted my finished design to look really clean.  Those are added in row 25.

I also used Aunt Lydia's #10 thread for my project which is a larger gauge than recommended.  That being said I also used a slightly large hook than recommended to accommodate the larger thread size.

Pink Pineapple Doily 1951
Finished Pink Pineapple Doily

I have not blocked out my Pink Pineapple Doily yet but that will be a post for another day.  Right now I have no spray starch on hand and I want to make sure this doily looks perfect before I set it out for display.

If you crochet this wonderful doily for yourself, make sure you share a picture with me, I would love to see your finished piece.

If you like this pattern and my work, please share the post using the buttons on the side and thanks!

To see what else I am working on, and to see pictures of my awesome cats, make sure you follow me on Instagram!

    1. Thank you for your kind comment. It took a little bit of work but I am really happy with how it came out. I have already started in my next pineapple doily. It is bigger and it has more pineapples.

  2. What is the diameter of this doily? Thanks, it is very beautiful!

    1. Thank you for asking and stopping by. I completely forgot to add that to my description. In its un-starched form, the doily is about 13 inches in diameter. Just a reminder, i did not crochet the last row which is made of picots. This will add a little more length to the diameter if you choose to add the picots. Mine never seem to come out right and I really didn't want to mess with them when I sat down to starch and pin this doily.

  3. Hello :) very beautiful doily! I am trying your pattern and making my very first doily but I am confused on what you mean by next loop. Do you mean in each space or do you mean only in the chain 2 space? For example I am on round 4 and my doily is wavy because I'm going into each space and I don't think I'm doing it right. Can you please help me?

    1. Sorry I am so late to respond but yes, only the chain 2 spaces. This should help flatten things out.

    1. I used 1 Large Ball of Aunt Lydias crochet cotten [10] and had some left over. If using the smaller balls you may need 2 to 3. Hope this helps. If you would like the yardage plase let me know and I will look it up for you.

  8. This looks so beautiful and I can't wait to try it! What size thread and hook did you use?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hi, I''m having a lot of difficulty following what you mean in row 18. Between the shells, am I supposed to ch2, tr, ch3, tr, ch2 in next loop tr, ch3, tr, ch2 and in next loop tr, ch3 tr, ch2 and continue to the next shell? Because that seems like WAAAAY too many stitches and doesn't match the picture. If that's not what you meant, then I have zero idea what I'm supposed to do in that space lol To me, it looks like, after finished the first shell, maybe do a ch3, skip a loop, tr, ch3, tr, ch3 and make the next shell.

    Please help! I'm trying to hurry up and finish this for my mother-in-law who is visiting in less than a week :S

  18. Thank you SO much for this pattern. I have never followed a doily crochet pattern before, so was determined to get this done. I skipped row the last row before the picot edging. Absolutely love the edging though! It turned out 21.5 inches wide, more like a big centerpiece for a kitchen table! Trying now to figure out how to share a picture with you....

  19. Beautiful! What size hook did you use for this pattern? Sorry if I missed that!

  20. I have a question. In round 10 you say to use a shell, but in the beginning you said we'd be using the cluster stitch. Is the shell the correct stitch? And is your shell 2dc, ch2, 2dc? Thank you!

5 Interesting Non Traditional Crochet Square Patterns

I absolutely love to crochet squares.  The very first crochet pattern I ever learned by heart was the granny square.  Even now, years and years later, when I am bored and I just want to crochet for the pure joy of crochet, the granny square is my go to pattern.  I know many other crocheters out there feel the same way and that's why crocheting squares is so popular.  There are so many square patterns out there, a crocheter could never complete them all in a life time.  I decided to search up a few really awesome squares and I felt were unique but still reminded me of that classic pattern I love so much.  These are the patterns that I found.  The stained glass afghan pattern costs a $1.99 but the rest of the patterns listed here are completely free and they are featured on the blogs of other designers.  All of these designs are now additions to my crochet bucket list.
