Pattern Description:

This design was inspired by a lovely window hanging that I spotted at the office window of my boys' school. It had a traditional pineapple design with beads, and I had never seen beads in crochet. I immediately thought of the beaded ornaments I had made and the gorgeous doilies my grandmother had given us all for wedding gifts. I have never had the patience to sit and crochet such intricate and fine novelties, but I figured the ornament would be less time consuming. I finished the pattern with plenty of time to make Christmas gifts for all of my boys' teachers, friends, and family, and subsequently received orders for hundreds over the years. I have since written patterns for a dozen other ornaments, including beads in each design. I hope you enjoy this pattern!
Sincerely, Heather Cool
