Happy Friday everyone!
I can’t believe there’s only one week left to the official beginning of summer. Do you have exciting things planned? I remember when I was in high school I used to make a list of everything I wanted to accomplish during summer vacations, like going to the movies, having a picnic or simply make new friends. This year it will mostly be about finishing my portfolio and finding an internship.
Now back to the good stuff! Since summer is close and you seemed to enjoy my last pattern, Lemony the Mascot, I thought I could share another cute pattern of mine, my sweet Pineapple! I created this little fellow to be my lemon’s best friend, and they sure make an amazing yellow duo! If you’re more interested in directly purchasing them, simply head over to my shop!
PINEAPPLE FRIEND CROCHET PATTERN
The pattern is written in U.S. terminology. This project is worked in rounds so you might want to use a stitch marker to mark the end/beginning of each round (a contrasting piece of yarn should be enough). There is no specific gauge for this project, just try to keep it tight and even throughout. Your final Pineapple will end up with approximately 6cm (2in). If you make a Pineapple of your own with this pattern I would love to see it, so please tag me in your posts and/or use the hashtag #lemonyarncreationspattern on social media.
