Today's photo tutorial is of the "Double Pineapple Doily."
**NOTE: I always begin every project that is "in the round" with a magic circle regardless of what the pattern calls for.**
I won't be including the actual written pattern, but any notes that I think might be helpful, so be sure to have the actual pattern pulled up as well as you work it.
ROUND 0 -- You can find a video tutorial here how to do a magic circle.
ROUND 1 -- Tighten your hanging end thread as you go.
ROUND 2 -- To avoid having to weave in this beginning thread-end, work it underneath the stitches in this round. To work a DTR (double treble crochet), see this video.
ROUND 3 -- You can see a video tutorial on how to work a dc3tog here. From here on out, these dc3tog will be called "cluster" stitches.
ROUND 9 -- The 9 TR form the beginning of your first round of pineapples. From here on out, 2DC + CH3 + 2DC will be called a "shell" stitch.
ROUND 16 -- For the next few rounds, you will see I've edited the pictures because I wrote the wrong thing down. It is fixed now.
ROUND 18 -- The lonely SC down at the bottom of this picture is the final stitch in this round of pineapples.
ROUND 21 -- TC and TR are the same thing; sorry for the confusion.
ROUND 25 -- TC and TR are the same thing; sorry for the confusion.
ROUND 36 -- For this round, you will need to complete what I have starred (*) in three places for each part of the final round. There wasn't enough space to write it out each time, so I simplified it a little by giving it an asterisk instead. Watch this video if you don't know how to do a CH 4 picot stitch.
The end! Be sure to block your work however you do so. Here's mine after I blocked it:
**If you have any questions or problems working this pattern, leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.**
