Royal Pineapple Doily : This pattern gives directions to crochet the doily pictured. The pattern write-up: Three rows of pineapples make this piece a really stunning doily or centerpiece. I saw one very similar to this at the Roosevelt Memorial Library in Hyde Park. It had been sent as a gift to the President. It is exhibited in a handsome gold case and is greatly admired by all who visit the Library. Make your doily in size 30 thread so that it will show the interesting design to best advantage. The doily is 17 inches across so it can be used as a centerpiece on a dining room table. It is simply beautiful when used under a low bowl of fruit or flowers"
