The pineapple crochet motif is a crochet classic! A symbol of welcome and hospitality, the pineapple became a common theme in home furnishings and needlework. Crocheted pineapples were ubiquitous in the 30s and 40s, and had another resurgence in the 50s with the addition of Hawaii to the US. And then with tiki culture in the 60s, it just kept going and going! But just because it can be retro or vintage, doesn’t mean it’s stale – the pineapple is fresh, modern, and new in these 10 up to date and free pineapple crochet patterns!
