Starting at center, ch 8. Join with sl st to form ring. 1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 dc in ring. Sl st in 3rd st of ch-3. 2nd rnd: Ch 3, dc in same place as sl st, * ch 2, skip 1 dc, 2 dc in next dc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 2, sl st in 3rd st of ch-3. 3rd rnd: Sl st in next dc and in sp, ch 3, in same sp make dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (starting shell made); in each sp around make 2 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (shell made)‚ÄĒ12 shells in rnd. 4th rnd: Sl st in next dc and in sp, ch 3 and complete a shell as before (shell over shell made), * ch 2, shell in sp of next shell (another shell over shell made). Repeat from * around. Join last ch-2 with sl st to top st of starting chain. 5th rnd: * Shell over shell, ch 4, in sp of next shell make 2 dc, ch 5 and 2 dc; ch 4. Repeat from * around. Join.
   Hereafter "shell over shell" will be referred to as "s.o.s."
   6th rnd: * S.o.s., ch 3, 13 tr in ch-5 sp (this is base of pineapple), ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join. 7th rnd: * S.o.s., ch 3, tr in each of next 13 tr making ch 1 between tr's, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join. 8th rnd: * S.o.s., (ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp) 12 times; ch 3. Repeat from * once more. In sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc; ** (ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp) 12 times; ch 3, s.o.s. Repeat from ** 2 more times; ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as last shell was made, (ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp) 12 times; ch 3. Join.
   9th rnd: * S.o.s., ch 3, skip the next ch 3 below, sc in next loop, (ch 3, sc in next loop) 10 times; ch 3. Repeat from * once more; shell in next ch-2 sp, ch 2, shell in next ch-2 sp, ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in next loop and work over corresponding parts as before. Join. 10th rnd: * S.o.s., ch 3, skip next ch-3, sc in next loop, make 9 ch-3 loops across pineapple, ch 3. Repeat from * once more. S.o.s., ch 2, shell in ch-2 sp between shells, ch 2, s.o.s., ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in next loop and work over corresponding parts as before. 11th rnd: * S.o.s., ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in next loop, make 8 ch-3 loops across pineapple, ch 3. Repeat from * once more. S.o.s., (ch 3, s.o.s.) twice; ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in next loop and work over corresponding parts as before. 12th rnd: S.o.s., ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in next loop, make 7 ch-3 loops across pineapple, ch 3, in sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc; ch 3, make 7 loops across next pineapple, ch 3, s.o.s., ch 4, in sp of next shell make 2 dc, ch 5, and 2 dc; ch 4, s.o.s., ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in next loop and work over correspond¬≠ing parts as before, ending with 2 dc where 1st shell was made, ch 2, sl st in top st of starting chain.
   Now work pineapples individually as follows: 1st row: Sl st in next dc and in sp, ch 3 and complete shell in same sp as last sl st, ch 3, skip next ch 3, make 6 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell in next ch-2 sp. Ch 4, turn. 2nd row: S.o.s., ch 3, make 5 loops across pineapple, ch 3, s.o.s. Ch 4, turn. Re¬≠peat the 2nd row, making 1 loop less on each row until 1 loop remains. Ch 4, turn. Next row: S.o.s., ch 4, sc in loop, ch 4, 2 dc in next shell, ch 1, sl st in sp of last complete shell, ch 1, 2 dc in same place as last 2 dc were made, ch 4, turn, sc in joining of shells. Break off.
   Attach thread to next ch-2 sp on 12th rnd following pineapple just completed and work as follows: 1st row: Shell in same sp as thread was attached, ch 3, skip the next ch 3, make 6 loops across pineapple, ch 3, s.o.s., ch 3, 13 tr in next ch-5 sp, ch 3, s.o.s., ch 3, make 6 loops across next pineapple, ch 3, shell in next ch-2 sp. Ch 4, turn. 2nd row: S.o.s., ch 3, make 5 loops across pine¬≠apple, ch 3, s.o.s., ch 3, tr in each of next 13 tr making ch 1 between tr's, ch 3, s.o.s., ch 3, make 5 loops across pineapple, ch 3, s.o.s. Ch 4, turn. 3rd row: S.o.s., ch 3, make 4 loops across pineapple, ch 3, s.o.s., (ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp) 12 times; ch 3, s.o.s., ch 3, make 4 loops across pineapple, ch 3, s.o.s. Ch 4, turn. 4th row: S.o.s., ch 3, make 3 loops across pineapple, ch 3, in sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc; ch 3, skip next ch 3, sc in loop, make 10 loops across pine¬≠apple, ch 3, in sp of next shell make (2 dc, ch 2) twice and 2 dc; ch 3, make 3 loops across pineapple, ch 3, s.o.s. Ch 4, turn. 5th row: S.o.s., ch 3, make 2 loops across pineapple, ch 3, shell over next ch-2 sp. Ch 4, turn and complete this pineapple as before. Complete cor¬≠responding incomplete pineapple and the pineapple between these two in same way.
   Complete other half of doily to cor¬≠respond.

EDGING ‚Ķ Work 2 rnds all around outer edges as follows: 1st rnd: Attach thread to a ch-4 loop at tip of any pineapple, ch 3 and in same loop com¬≠plete a shell, * ch 3, shell in next ch-4 loop. Repeat from * around, ending with dc in top st of starting chain. 2nd rnd: Sl st under the dc just made, sc in same sp, * ch 3, in sp of next shell make dc, p and dc‚ÄĒto make a p, ch 3 and sc in 3rd ch from hook. Ch 3, sc in next sp between shells. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, sl st in 1st sc made. Break off. Starch lightly and press.

Hi. Sorry, I'm not sure what specific instructions in the pattern mean. I only restore the original vintage leaflet and publish it online. I haven't personally made them myself. Sorry.
