“Featuring 14 New Pineapple Designs ~ Book 230” this is a pattern book for crochet accessories. Published in 1946 by The Spool Cotton Company, New York, New York, the booklet measures 7½ x 10¾ inches with 31 pages; it is the sixth edition. It is in good condition with some wear to the covers.
Back in the 1930’s, ’40’s and 1950’s the clear winner for the most popular design was the pineapple design. It blends with furniture from any period – beautiful in a Colonial setting, at home with eighteenth century English, and has flair to grace twentieth century modern; combining equally well with formal or informal settings. The pattern book has many lovely variations of the pineapple in aprons, doilies, tablecloths and bedspreads.
