Recently, I was crocheting a lovely doily to fit over the back of a chair.  Unfortunately since it was a doily, I did not have a pattern for a armrest to match.  This was a challenge for me.  I searched all over for free patterns with doilies of the pineapple design. I could not find any armrest doilies.  So, this is my own creation.  I am posting the instructions to make it.  However, bear with me...I have never done this before.
