When I see crocheted pineapples, I do not think of old lady lacy doilies. I think of Annette Funicello's rendition of the song, "Pineapple Princess." Yes, I'm a child of the 60's, stuck in my pop-culture world.
I've crocheted the pineapple pattern in the past. It's fun, fast and deceivingly impressive looking.
I saw this pattern online. I remembered that I still had lots of Denise's bright yellow Berroco Comfort Yarn in my stash....perfect for a Pineapple Princess scarf! I do love how this turned out. I might add a bit of green embroidery at the bottom of each pineapple motif just to give it a Hawiiana look!
A Possible Mother's Day Gift?
The reddish-pink pineapple scarf (below) is made from Ella Rae Silkience. I like it, but it's almost too drapey. I think I'll try this pattern again in a bulky yarn! Once I find a pattern I like, I crochet it in several different yarns until I find the perfect match!
