Free Vintage Crochet - Pineapple Ruffle Centerpiece Doily Pattern
MATERIALS:
PINEAPPLE, AS YOU KNOW, is an old handicraft favorite, being a theme which lends itself to infinite variation. This one is twenty-one inches in diameter and includes a very generous ruffle. The model was made of J. & P. Coats Big Ball Best Six Cord Mercerized Crochet (3 balls), size 30 in white and a size 10 steel crochet hook. Abbreviations: ch (chain) sp (space) sl st (slip stitch) sc (single crochet) rnd (round) p (picot) dc (double crochet) hdc (half double crochet) sk (skip)
