Lacy Pineapple Table Runner

Question

As a newby I'm not sure how to describe the pattern I'm looking for (because of intellectual property rights as it's not my photo) but I saw it on another website with the description above and have been searching a couple of hours a day ever since.

 

The lady who posted it on her website had a picture of the finished item but explained that she used an old Magic Crochet book which no longer had the front page so she couldn't give the year, vol. no. etc.

 

I have written to her to ask if she could suggest somewhere I could look but didn't get a reply and even to wrote to another member of the website to see if she had any luck when posting the same question as I have - no reply. I've even tried buying few old MC books on ebay in the hope that I would get lucky and one would contain the pattern but no luck so far.

 

As it's made up of pineapple motifs there are a lot of ones that are similar but not the exact one.

 

Am I allowed to put in the website as a link that I saw the pattern on as I really would love some help.

Would she not allow you to post her picture if you credited her?

Hi lhendrix, I'm not sure because I can't get her to reply, but she did put on her page that people could use the photo to contact Magic Crochet magazine to get back copies.

 

I've just checked the FAQ's and I think I can put a link to her website I suppose that way she gets the credit (I have to admit I don't really understand this but hope it's OK)

 

(Thanks for replying - it's great to have someone else to talk to instead of the just searching page after page of websites)

Someone made one from that magazine. these aren't motifs though.

There are others there too but didn't see who designed them.

That's in the link I gave and it was there when I posted it, I didn't give it as I wasn't sure it was the one she wanted untill she looked at it.

Hi all, thank you soooo much for your replies, especially HappyOldCro. Having looked at the link for issue #57 unfortunately that seller didn't mail to the UK but I could then do another search of the internet and found a copy on ebay which I have successfully bought.

 

I'm trying to act grown up about this....... Nope, can't do it - jumping up and down shouting "I got it, I got it"

 

I thank everyone, I'm sure my friend who will get this as a gift would thank everyone and my family thank you all because I'm happy again. I hope you all have as good a Sunday as I'm having.

Hi all, my pattern arrived from Canada this morning and very unfortunately the pattern I was looking for was not in it :-(

 

HappyOldCro, is there any possibility that you could check the number etc that you put here. Mine says "December 1988 - Number 57" is that right?

 

I'm beginning to wish I'd never seen this pattern and stuck with ones that I could easily find. Typical me, I start with a completely open mind, see something I like and after that nothing else will do. I've wasted so many hours shopping when this has happened with a jumper or dress, will I never learn.

I'm sorry this happened but I might have an idea why it happened. I had hoped you had asked the eBay seller to be sure.

I wonder if she was giving you the number of the one on another blog someone made, using the other post about that magizine but not seeing that that one was a different one then the one you wanted.

 

I do think it was in a Magic Crochet though as I had it saved for years untill I gave all mine away so don't know which one except they were in the 80's.

On the web site you gave the lady gives the name of it and says it was the early eighties so if you look on etsy and eBay they have lots. I guess the only way is to email each seller but that could take forever I know. Also alot of the Japanese books have the older patterns in them and that mght be in one but finding them is another problem too.

 

If you never learn just think you have lots of company as I spend a lot of time here looking for things I never find and it does get frustrating at times.

Hi sarisue, words of wisdom most definitely about checking with buyer before hand but this fool just rushed in as usual. You would have thought I'd have learnt as far as this pattern is concerned as I had bought almost a dozen already in the vain hope they would be the one. HOWEVER, with your very gentle reminder I have done another search this morning for early 1980's copies on ebay and have this time sent a question to the buyer before buying. Here's hoping.

:lolI am glad you think it was gentle because I did spend some time trying to reply easely. As i know most of us have done the same things too.

I hope you find it. Lots of them have oval runner or pineapple listed in the contents so you have a daunting task. I really do hope you find it soon.
