My initial exposure to crochet was at the age of 13. Back then I had to make the difficult choice between dying of boredom (summer break in da probinsya & no internet yet, go figure) and making sense of my mother’s fragile-looking crochet book.
I chose the latter and, quite frankly, surprised even li’l impatient me by being able to produce basic lace doilies and table toppers by the time the summer break ended. I had discovered a new love!
But it would be many, many years later when I would seriously revisit crochet again. This time my interest for the craft has scaled new heights and I continue to enthusiastically hone my skills via online tutorials.
“Catherine” is crocheted with size 10 mercerized crochet cotton in white, and measures approximately 105 cms across. This is the largest, most intricate doily/table topper I’ve made so far and, I think it’s gorgeous!
Here’s a nice place to start if you’re interested in giving pineapple lace a try.
