Pineapples for Everyone Shawl CAL: Laying Down the Foundation

Pineapples with Underground Crafter CAL

Welcome to the Pineapples for Everyone Shawl CAL!  If you’re just joining in, you can find the free pattern here in Crochetvolution.  Ravelry members can join our CAL chat here.  Our tag is 2013PFEcal.

Welcome to our second week of the Pineapples for Everyone Shawl CAL.  Apparently, some speedy participants have almost finished their shawls already, but do not feel rushed!  The rest of us mere mortals will crochet a long at a leisurely pace!

Since I’m working a week ahead of the schedule, last week I shared progress photos of the first 8 rows, or the foundation, of the shawl.  This week, I’ll share pictures of the first repeat, rows 9-14.  These are the rows you will repeat until your shawl is the size you want (or until you run out of yarn – whichever comes first!).

Once again, I’m sharing my progress pictures.

It often happens that while reviewing pictures I take for the blog, I see mistakes in my work.  I actually missed one of the increases on my original Row 14 (Apparently, I shouldn’t watch suspenseful Dexter episodes while making a sample shawl.)  Here is the revised version, with all of the increases intact, but on a different background.

Through Row 14 (the outdoors, windy and sunny version).

Once you make it through Row 14, you’ve done everything you need to finish this shawl.  (Yay!) Keep in mind that you should be increasing the total number of pineapples in each row by four (two on each side) every time you complete Row 14.

Now my mistake can help you!

Let me know if you have any questions about the shawl, and don’t forget to share your pictures!
