Lost Doily Now Found

Pineapple Parade

About 25 years’ ago, I bought this book. I bought it because there is an unusually-shaped oblong doily in the book. I made that doily no less than a dozen times. My mother has two of them in her home and I gave away many of them in doily exchanges on the internet.

You see, I bought it for the Star Fans & Pineapples pattern shown on the back cover here. Not only is it oblong, but it just has a different look than a lot of pineapple doilies. It has a baroque look to it.

About 12 years’ ago, when I lost everything, this is one of the pattern books I missed the most. Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember the name of it so I couldn’t find it. I’ve looked for it for years. I could have probably just swiped one from my mother’s house and recreated it. But, I really wanted the book.

I was thrilled when someone in a Facebook group posted a finished project of that doily! I immediately wrote to her and asked for the name of the book. And, not 10 minutes later, I was able to find it on eBay for $4. Woot! Internet = beautiful thing!



Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
