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 or buffet sets or as odd doilies. The doilies are worked in pineapple stitch and feature the attractive pineapples as a six point central motif, as well as a spiraling border. Work the doilies in large sizes of 18, 22 or 28 inches or small sizes of 12, 15 or 20 inches.
This is a Mail Order Design Pattern, purchased through newspapers and catalogs. This pattern was marketed as Laura Wheeler 628 in 1943. "Pineapple - the all around favorite in crochet design! Small wonder when it makes such lovely doilies as these that have so many uses".
