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.

These remind me of my mom. She use to crochet little snowmen for Christmas and pumpkins for Halloween.
