It worked out to 11 inches square in size 20 thread. The directions claimed 7 1/2 inches square but they must have used a smaller thread.
There aren't a lot of tatted pineapple patterns available but I did find a few. Here is one by Doretha Albee, Pineapple Heaven, at Bellaonline.com.
There are six patterns HERE by Teri Dusenbury. They include a bag, some butterflies, and a doily.
There is a small project, an earring, by Sheron Goldin which can be found HERE. That's a good way to try out the technique if you haven't before.
Last night I started tatting the calf in Christel Weidmann's Farm Animals. The directions used RW (reverse work) in some spots so I assumed that unless RW was there, I shouldn't reverse work. I haven't gotten very far and apparently that assumption is wrong. I need to start over. There is a diagram too, and lots of color coding so I'm not sure why I'm confused. I've had this book for a long time and thought I should tat something from it! I love the calf and will probably also tat the cow and the bull if I can figure it out, but I especially like the rooster and have wanted to tat him for a long time. Wish me luck!
