Hint of Pineapple Doily

Hint of Pineapples Doily Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This lovely pink Hint of Pineapple Doily did not start out as a pineapple Doily at all. In fact, when I started to make this, I had a square doily in mind. Well this is what happens when I go nuts. I just let the stitches fall where they may and as I finished each round, I wrote it down. Before I knew it, I had visions of pineapples appearing. Weird huh?
