Crocheted Doilies: These two crocheted doilies can be made either of No. 50 Mercerized Crochet Cotton, No. 30 Mercerized Crochet Cotton or Mercerized Crochet and Knitting Cotton. The choice of the cotton governs the size and texture of the doilies. The doilies can be used as luncheon sets or as odd doilies. There are two sizes each of the small and large doily. The small doilies are 15 or 20 inches and the large doilies are 22 or 30 inches in diameter.
This is a Mail Order Design pattern purchased through newspapers. The pattern was marketed as Alice Brooks 7622 in 1943. The newspaper description: "The pineapple, yesterdays favorite, the choice today! The pineapple doilies, beautiful to look at are the joy of beginners and experienced alike. The gossamer design lends elegance to luncheon table or living room furniture ... protection too!"
