Stand tall, wear a crown, and stay sweet on the inside. If you can’t be a pineapple, you can wear a crochet pineapple applique!
Is there a fruit more summer-y than a pineapple? Sunny yellow and bright green, pineapples just scream summer.
Now you can take this sweet fruit with you everywhere, because these mini pineapples aren’t edible, they are to wear!
I used yellow fine/fingering weight yarn for the pineapples and a size E/3.50mm crochet hook. I didn’t have any green yarn on hand in the right weight, so I used embroidery thread for the tassel stem. You can glue a pin back to the pineapple to attach it to a shirt or jacket, or just use a safety pin.
For a summer celebration string some pineapples on some twine and decorate and cake or cupcake! OR maybe even a pink pineapple pavlova.
This pattern is mainly single crochet and spike stitch.
If you’re unfamiliar with the spike stitch it is essentially an elongated single crochet. You create a single crochet stitch, but you insert your hook into the row underneath the one you are working on. I really love that texture that it gives to the pineapple. It also makes for a stiffer fabric. (Click for a visual tutorial from Craftsy.)
I starched my pineapples when they were finished. You can also apply fabric stiffener to them.
