Silver-Gray Crochet Doily in Thread

This newly-crocheted thread doily has six pineapple motifs and measures about 12 inches across. It was crafted with a steel hook using Aunt Lydia's 10# Classic Crochet Thread. 100% cotton.

Color is silver, a light shade of gray.

The pattern used for this doily came from the 1946 book Pineapple Designs from Clark's/J&P Coats. Book features 14 pineapple thread crochet patterns including a table setting. This is the bread-and-butter plate doily.

Center is crocheted in the round while pineapple tips are crocheted separately.

Lovely for Victorian or traditional decor. Can also be used as a motif for embellishments.
