As was typical, the Mail Order patterns built on each design ... i.e., create a pattern and if it proves popular, start making slight deviations in another pattern .. repeat, repeat, repeat.
Design 833 - "If you want a lovely cover for chilly weather, why don't you crochet one yourself. This little cape in the lacy pineapple pattern is easy to crochet" 1955
Design 7429 - This crocheted pineapple cape is a close match with the variation being a different collar.
Pattern 7329 - Multiple variations in this pretty design.
Design 617 - "Graceful cape to star atop fashions -- in pineapple design combined with easy shell stitch".
Design 716 - "Rows and rows of pineapples topped by open crochet yoke and band collar - a pretty capelet for any season wear".
I still have several hundred Mail Order Design patterns to process and, I have no doubt, there will be more pineapple capes.
