7741 Doily Pattern

MATERIALS:
J. & P. COATS or CLARK'S O.N.T. BEST SIX CORD MERCERIZED CROCHET, Size 20. Steel Crochet Hook No. 8 or 9.
Starting at center, ch 8. Join with sl st to form a ring.
1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 dc in ring. Join to top of ch-3.
2nd rnd: Ch 3, dc in same place as sl st, (ch 2, skip 1 dc, 2 dc in next dc) 11 times; ch 2, sl st in top of ch-3.
3rd rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, ch 3, in same sp make dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (a starting shell). In each sp around make 2 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (shell). Join.
4th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, ch 3 and make a starting shell in same sp, (ch 2, shell over next shell) 11 times; ch 2. Join.
5th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, ch 3 and make a starting shell over this starting shell, (ch 4, in sp of next shell make 2 dc, ch 5 and 2 dc; ch 4, shell over next shell) 5 times; ch 4, in next shell make 2 dc, ch 5 and 2 dc; ch 4. Join.
6th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, * shell over shell, ch 3, 13 tr in next ch-5 loop, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.
7th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, * shell over shell, ch 3, (tr in next tr, ch 1) 12 times; tr in next tr, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join.
8th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, * shell over shell, (ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp) 12 times; ch 3. Repeat from * once more. In sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc. ** (Ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp) 12 times; ch 3, shell over shell. Repeat from ** 2 more times. Ch 2, 2 dc in same place as last shell, (ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp) 12 times; ch 3. Join.
9th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, * shell over shell, ch 3, skip ch-3, sc in next loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 10 times; ch 3. Repeat from * once more; (shell in next ch-2 sp, ch 2) twice; ch 1 more, skip ch-3, sc in next loop. Work over remainder of rnd to correspond.
10th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, * shell over shell, ch 3, skip ch-3, (sc in next loop, ch 3) 9 times; sc in next loop, ch 3. Repeat from * once more. Shell over shell, ch 2, shell in sp between shells, ch 2, shell over shell. Work over remainder of rnd to correspond, making an increase, as before, directly opposite other increase.
11th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in next sp, * shell over shell, ch 3, skip ch-3, sc in next loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 8 times; ch 3. Repeat from * once more. Shell over shell, (ch 3, shell over shell) twice; ch 3 and work over remainder of rnd to correspond.
12th rnd: Shell over shell, * ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in next loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 7 times; ch 3, in sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc; ch 3, skip ch-3, sc in next loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 7 times; ch 3, shell over shell, ch 4, in sp of next shell make 2 dc, ch 5, and 2 dc; ch 4, shell over shell, ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in next loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 7 times; ch 3, in sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc. Repeat from * once more, but ending with 2 dc in same place as 1st shell, ch 2. Join.
Now work pineapples individually as follows: 1st row: Sl st in next dc and in sp, ch 3 and complete shell in same sp as last sl st, ch 3, skip next ch-3, make 6 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell in next ch-2 sp. Ch 4, turn.
2nd row: Shell over shell, ch 3, make 5 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell over shell. Ch 4, turn. Repeat the 2nd row, making 1 loop less on each row until 1 loop remains. Ch 4, turn.
Next row: Shell over shell, ch 4, sc in loop, ch 4, 2 dc in next shell, ch 1, sl st in sp of last complete shell, ch 1, 2 dc in same place as last 2 dc were made, ch 4, turn, sc in joining of shells. Break off.
Attach thread to next ch-2 sp on 12th rnd following pineapple just completed and work as follows: 1st row: Shell in same sp as thread was attached, ch 3, skip the next ch 3, make 6 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell over shell, ch 3,13 tr in next ch-5 sp, ch 3, shell over shell, ch 3, make 6 loops across next pineapple, ch 3, shell in next ch-2 sp. Ch 4, turn.
2nd row: Shell over shell, ch 3, make 5 loops across pine apple, ch 3, shell over shell, ch 3, (tr in next tr, ch 1) 12 times; tr in next tr; ch 3, shell over shell, ch 3, make 5 loops across pineapple, ch-3, shell over shell. Ch 4, turn.
3rd row: Shell over shell, ch 3, make 4 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell over shell, (ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp) 12 times; ch 3, shell over shell, ch 3, make 4 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell over shell. Ch 4, turn.
4th row: Shell over shell, ch 3, make 3 loops across pineapple, ch 3, in sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc; ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in loop, make 10 loops across pineapple, ch 3, in sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc; ch 3, make 3 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell over shell. Ch 4, turn.
5th row: Shell over shell, ch 3, make 2 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell over next ch-2 sp. Ch 4, turn and complete this pineapple as before. Complete other 2 pineapples in the same way.
Complete other half of doily to correspond.
EDGING
1st rnd:
Attach thread to a ch-4 loop at tip of any pineapple, ch 3 and in same loop complete a shell, * ch 3, shell in next turning ch-4 loop. Repeat from * around, ending with dc in top of starting chain.
2nd rnd: Sl st under the dc just made, sc in same sp, * ch 3, in sp of next shell make dc, ch 3, sc in 3rd ch from hook (a picot made) and dc. Ch 3, sc in next sp between shells. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, sl st in 1st sc made. Break off.
