Free Pattern: Pineapples for Everyone Shawl

Pineapples for Everyone Shawl, free crochet pattern by Underground Crafter

I love crocheting the pineapple motif. During the holiday season, I like to make customized versions of the same design for several people on my gift list. It makes it easier for me to remember the pattern but I can also create something special and unique for everyone.

The Pineapples for Everyone Shawl is a recipe pattern that allows you to create a customized shawl for several girls and ladies on your holiday list. The length is easily adjusted by increasing the number of repeats. Since the design works equally well in a lightweight yarn or in a bulky yarn, it’s a great year round shawl, too. For the lavender and striped samples, I used an eco-friendly thick and thin yarn to add some texture while making a great gift for an environmentally conscious friend.

This pattern was originally published in Crochetvolution here. Thanks to Veruska on Ravelry, it’s also available in Italian here on Maglia e Uncinetto. I previously hosted a CAL for this pattern, and I have linked to helpful posts throughout the pattern for those that would like more pictures and explanations. Enjoy!

  1. Hi< i really like this pineapple shawl but i find it difficult to understand your row1 and 2. it is not clear at all. do you join after the row 1. can you check this please.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Ola! The pattern is worked flat in rows, so the only join is to create the ring in the foundation chain row. In other words, you do not join after Row 1 or after Row 2. Let me know if you have other questions.

  2. Thank you so much for posting this pattern! I came across it yesterday and started making it today for a friend! I was nervous I’d mess it up as I’m still very new to crochet. I’ve made a few mistakes but it’s getting much easier and looks awesome! Thank you for writing the pattern simply enough for beginners like me to understand!

  3. I found you pattern this morning while surfing. I love the look of it. I think I’ll start one in the morning.
    Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  4. I have started this shawl and it is looking pretty good! Just curious about the info. in Row 13, in particular about the Ch 5 in the beginning; and then down in Row 14 the Ch 6 in the beginning and the next info. about the 3 dc in the Ch 5 space. There is not a Ch 5 space from previous row when you turn, so do you mean in the 5th Ch of the Ch 6?
    Thanks for any help and a big thanks for the pattern! Just getting a little confused with the last couple of rows to able to continue on with the pattern!
    Blessings,
    Helen

    1. Thanks for writing, Helen! At the end of Row 13, you finish a repeat with a ch 3 and then add ch 2 (so, it actually forms a ch-5 sp). A similar thing happens in Row 14. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have other questions.

    2. Sorry for the confusion…think I got it figured out and the pattern does seem to be working out just right (I haven’t used to many patterns with the + signs, so maybe that was the problem… for me anyway)!!
      Now if I can just find the rest of the yarn I need to finish it! Time for a trip to the craft store!
      Blessings and thanks again for the pattern!

  5. The pineapple pattern is one of my favorites. I love this shawl pattern. I’m on my way to pull from my yarn stash to make it. Thank you very much for sharing.

  6. I love this pattern. I have never tried this stitch. I have a Halloween wedding this year and I think this will be awesome in black. Off to the store I go. Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. Hello!

    I love this pattern and have started the project but was wondering how to make it “striped”. I’m usually pretty good at figuring these things out, I even make my own patterns sometimes, but this I can’t figure out.

    I would like to stripe it just near the bottom with 2 stripes…. There is a picture of a striped one on the Ravelry site….

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Ariana. As you read through the pattern, there is a link right about Rep Rows 9-14 that shares how you can make a multi-color version. I’d love to see your picture when you finish.

  8. I’ve begun this pattern and have completed one repeat from row 9; however, I’ve been unable to successfully move into the third repeat from row 9. I’ve tried four times, but the shawl wants to draw up in the middle at the shell since there doesn’t seem to be enough increase to accommodate the increases at each end.

    Can you give me any help?
