Fancy Pineapple Stitch

  3. Pineapple patterns make me smile. And I do believe they can be made with just about any kind of yarn, depending on what you're making :)

  5. Great pattern! I do have a question though: In Row 9... Ch 4, turn, 5 dc... Is it 5 dc or 5 tr? I ask because the row ends in 6 tr in the last ch 2.

    1. Hi Sabine,
      Good catch! Yes, you are right, it should be 5 tr (I just fixed it in the pattern). Thank you very much for letting me know.
      Happy New Year!

  6. When you say "11 tr in next ch-5 space" for Row 2, do you mean the open space underneath the ch-5 or the first chain of the ch-5?
