50 Fabulous Pineapple Crochet Motifs (Leisure Arts #4864) shows the versatility of the beloved and beautiful pineapple motif, which has been one of the most popular crochet motifs for well over 100 years. In these designs by Jean Leinhauser and Ferosa Harold, the crocheted pineapple turns itself into a peacock, a Christmas tree, an owl and many other unusual designs, as well as appearing in a variety of shapes. The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since colonial days, and these projects make wonderful gifts, especially for housewarming events. All of the photographed models were made with Size 10 crochet cotton, but you can of course make them in any thread or yarn you choose, so no gauge is given.
