I love the pineapple motif. During the holiday season, I like to make customized versions of the same design for several people on my gift list. It makes it easier for me to remember the pattern but I can also create something special and unique for everyone. Pineapples for Everyone is a shawl recipe that allows you to create a customized shawl for several girls and ladies on your holiday list. The length is easily adjusted by increasing the number of repeats. The design works equally well in a lightweight yarn or in a bulky yarn. For the sample, I used an eco-friendly thick and thin yarn to add some texture while making a great gift for an environmentally conscious friend.

Size: Adjustable

Finished Size: Shawlette in the photos is 45″ x 24″

Materials:

  • Galler Yarns Inca Eco [100% organic cotton; 140 yd/128 m per 100 g skein]; color: Lavender; 3 skeins
  • J/10 (6.00 mm) hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Stitch marker or scrap yarn (optional)

Gauge: 5 rows = 4″ in pattern. Exact gauge is not critical for this project.

Special Stitches

Dc3tog = double crochet 3 together (decrease) = *Yo, insert hook in next st, yo and draw up a loop, yo and pull through first 2 loops on hook.* Repeat from * to * twice. Yo and pull through 4 remaining loops on hook.

Shell = (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc).

Note: Never stitch in dc of the previous shell. Each shell is worked into ch-3 sp of previous shell.

  1. Hello to you and may I say such a nice shwal!

    The only thing for me,
    it is a written pattern?

    And we ( many crocheters from other langages and countryes,
    we are so many to prefer diagrams and shema,
    the crochet international langage.
    much easy to follow while crocheting, luch easy to visualise what we do ….

    Thank you very much anyway ( the japonease and russain ahve understood this and are so talented by doing so)

  4. Thank you so much Marie for this pattern! After searching through and looking for just the right pineapple stitch shawl to learn from and make – I have settled on yours- it looks beautiful! I also can read through the instructions and I think I can follow them! I’m a pretty new crocheter and love this stitch so much! Thank you for taking the time to design and write it down for all of us to use!

  5. Thank you! I have been wanting to learn pineapples. And as one who hasn’t quite figured out actually crocheting off a chart I am glad for the written pattern!
