The pineapple has traditionally symbolized hospitality and good luck. Artists and craftsmen have turned that auspicious fruit into a popular design motif; none more so than crocheters, who have featured the pineapple in doilies, tablecloths, bedspreads and many other decorative items. By popular demand, here is a completely new volume of pineapple patterns, 32 elegant, enduringly fashionable designs from thread-company pamphlets published over 30 years ago. From this pineapple treasury, experienced and novice crocheters will find projects to challenge their skills.

All stitches used in this book are explained and diagrammed; general instructions, abbreviations, conversion charts for stitches and hooks and a Metric Conversion Chart supplement the patterns, each of which has step-by-step directions.
