Pineapple Doily

Pineapple doilies possess a unique charm. It is fascinating to watch the pineapples form as the rounds progress. I have finally completed my pineapple doily.  It took me ages to complete it.

-and here it is all starched up and blocked. It measures about 18 inches in diameter. I worked it with Pearl cotton size 40 and a no:14 steel hook.

Here's a close up image of the center. The image below is a close-up of the last few rounds.
