I think all doily makers love pineapple lace..
Recently my friend Ninu, introduced a new doily book to me ..
and i went crazy making pineapple lace…
This one is in very light pink, not a branded cotton thread…
It is almost similar to Anchor knitting cotton…
I got size 22” with this size thread, but i think finer thread looks better for this pattern.
I decided to try a pillow this time…i have not tried a crochet pillow before…
For this i used the Anchor knitting cotton…
I reduced the size of the pattern to make it suitable for my cushions..
It is a 16” cushion insert, so i made an 18” lace
and lined it with matching fabric.
Now let me introduce the pattern book,
It is a Japanese pattern book in English with patterns in diagram.
When i saw beautiful pineapple patterns, i was so excited to get this book..
I checked online to order and I got it thru Sapnaonline.
Their service was quick and i picked it up when i went to India for 10 days.
It is an awesome book and perfect treasure for all pineapple pattern lovers.
But it has patterns only in diagram with a short pattern description.
So those who like to work with diagrams will enjoy this book.
But let me tell you, they have explained all the symbols in crochet,
and I’m sure it will not be difficult for a newbie.
I have not made much doilies from diagram,
but it was super easy for me to read the diagrams.
The other interesting fact about this book is,
they have explained the ‘anatomy’ of pineapple lace,
and it is surely going to help us to whip up our own patterns..
Here is a peep to the patterns inside…
(not a great pic because it is a mobile shot)
Looking forward to do many more pineapple laces from it..
Thank you so much for stopping by with your lovely comments..
Until next time…
Have a nice day…nima
