Leaf Edged Centerpiece with Rose and Pineapple Design: This pattern gives directions to crochet the oval doily pictured. This large doily is very effective when made in three colors, as directed. The basic color (ecru, cream, ivory, or white) is used only for the pineapple part of the piece. Your choice of a rose-color fashions the center motif, and the same color is repeated in the flat border between leaf-edging and pineapples. The same color which is chosen to make the leaf-edging should be used to make the five rows which feature leaves surrounding the rose at center. Pastel colors combined in this way make a pleasing color-balance for the finished handiwork.
This is a Mail Order pattern, purchased through newspapers and catalogs. This pattern was marketed as Martha Madison 86. "This leaf edged centerpiece with rose and pineapple design is easy to crochet".
