Crochet Patterns - Pineapple Doily with or without Ruffle

 

Make this doily with or without ruffles, as desired. Note: This pattern is for advanced crocheters.

Doily should measure 12 inches in diameter without ruffle and 18 inches with ruffle.

Materials: Mercerized crochet cotton thread, size 30: 2 balls ecru or color of choice for doily without ruffle and 3 balls if adding ruffle. Steel crochet hook No. 10.

Pattern: Cut 8 strands of thread, each 1 yard long. Starting at center, ch 10. Join with sl st to form ring.

1st rnd: Working over 8 strands of thread make 24 sc in ring. Join with sl st. Drop strands.

2nd rnd: * Ch 17, half dc in 6th ch from hook, (ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next ch) 4 times; ch 1, skip 1 ch, half dc in next ch, ch 1, sc in next 3 sc. Repeat from * around. Join (8 petals).

3rd rnd: * Working over the 8 strands, make 2 sc in each of next 6 sps, 7 sc in next sp, 2 sc in each of next 6 sps, skip 1 sc, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around. Break off 8 strands.

4th rnd: Sl st in next 4 sc, ch 4, * skip 1 sc, dc in next sc, (ch 2, skip 1 sc, dc in next sc) 5 times; In same place as last dc was made, make (ch 2, dc) twice (tip): (ch 2, skip 1 sc, dc in next sc) 5 times; skip next sc, holding back on hook the last loop of each tr, make tr in next sc and in corresponding sc of next petal, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (joint tr made). Repeat from * around. Join and break off.

5th rnd: Attach thread to first sp of the 2 sps at tip of any petal, sc in same sp, * ch 5, sc in next sp, ch 10, skip 2 sps, make a joint d tr by making a d tr in next sp and in corresponding sp on next petal, ch 10, skip 2 sps on same petal, sc in next sp. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5. d tr in first sc.

6th 7th and 8th rnds: * Ch 10, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5, d tr in d tr.

9th rnd: Ch 3, holding back on hook the last loop of each dc, make 2 dc in same loop, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (starting cluster made): ch 3, 3-dc cluster in same loop (shell made): * ch 5, in next lp make cluster, ch 7 and cluster; (ch 5, in next lp make cluster, ch 3 and cluster) twice. Repeat from * around and join.

10th rnd: Sl st in next sp, ch 3 and complete a starting cluster, ch 3, cluster in same sp (shell made over shell), ( ch 1, skip next sp, 15 tr in next sp, ch 1, shell over next shell, ch 5, shell over next shell. Repeat from * around and join.

11th rnd: * Shell over shell, (ch 1, tr in ext tr) 15 times: ch 1, shell over shell, ch 5. Repeat from * around and join.

12th rnd: * Shell over shell, (ch 2, skip next tr, cluster in next sp) 14 times: ch 2, shell over shell, ch 5. Repeat from * around and join.

13th rnd: * Shell over shell, (ch 3, skip next cluster, sc in next sp) 13 times: ch 3, shell over shell, ch 5. Repeat from * around and join.

14th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, skip next sp, cluster in next loop, (ch 2, cluster in next lp) 11 times: ch 3, shell over shell, ch 5. Repeat from * around and join.

15th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, skip next sp, sc in next sp, (ch 3, sc in next sp) 10 times: ch 4, shell over shell, ch 5. Repeat from * around and join.

16th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, skip next sp, cluster in next loop, (ch 2, cluster in next lp) 9 times: ch 4, shell over shell, ch 5. Repeat from * around and join.

17th rnd: * shell over shell, ch 4, skip next sp, sc in nest sp, (ch 3, sc in next sp) 8 times: ch 4, shell over shell, ch 5, sc in next sp, ch 5. Repeat from * around and join.

18th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, skip next sp, cluster in next lp, ( ch 3, cluster in next lp) 7 times: ch 3, shell over shell, (ch 5, sc in next lp) twice: ch 5. Repeat from * around and join.

Continue in this manner, having 1 more loop on each rnd between pineapples, making ch-6 lps on the 21st rnd and 1 ch more on each lp on each rnd thereafter (at same time there should be 2 ch-3 lps on each pineapple on each ch-3 rnd of pineapples) until 24 rnds have been completed (2 clusters at tip of each pineapple on 24th rnd).

25th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, skip next sp, in next sp make sc, ch 3, and sc; ch 4, shell over shell, (ch 10, sc in next lp) 9 times: ch 10. Repeat from * around and join.

26th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, skip next sp, sc in next lp, ch 4, cluster in sp of next shell, ch 1, sl st back into sp of previous shell, ch 1, cluster in same sp as last cluster, (ch 10, sc in next lp) 10 times: ch 10. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5, d tr in top of first cluster.

Note: If adding ruffle to this pattern, do not break off at end of next round.

27th rnd: * Ch 10, sc in next lp. Repeat from * around. Join and break off. Starch lightly and press.

Ruffle:

1st rnd: Sl st to center of next lp, * ch 7, sc in next lp. Repeat from * around and join.

2nd rnd: 9 sc in each sp around and join.

3rd rnd: Sc in same place as sl st, * ch 5, skip 1 sc, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around and join.

4th rnd: Sl st to center of next lp, sc in same lp, * ch 6, sc in next lp. Repeat from * around and join.

5th to 11th rnds: Work as for last rnd, having 1 ch more on each lp on each rnd (13 ch on 11th rnd).

At end of 11th rnd, join and break off. Starch lightly and press.
