I was browsing around in the Doilies category looking for a specific pattern, when it dawned on me that there were 34 pages (18 patterns per page). Now, that's quite a bit to weed through when looking for something specific. Which got me to thinking that it might also be quite a chore for the customer. So, it called for breaking the patterns into two categories. It didn't take long to decide the dividing point would be pineapples. There are a Huge number of Pineapple Doilies.
How many ... well, at this point in time, 395. There quite a bit of variety going on:
Some are quite simple, like this pretty Cloverleaf doily from Coats & Clarks
And some are downright elegant like this Mail Order 5186 Masterpiece - Thank you Anne Cabot
And you might classify a few as discrete as in this Sea Spray Ruffled Doily.
Not many, but there's a couple that you could call colorful, like this Pineapple delight doily from Lily Mills. Of course, with planning, any doily could be crocheted 'colorful'.
Well, I could go on and one here. You know, large, medium, small, scalloped, etc. etc. etc., but I'm sure you've got the point.
Thanks for dropping by,
