Pineapples are a huge trend right now, and it's one that I am totally on board with. I've been wanting to make a cute pineapple project for a while now, and here it is: crochet pineapple washcloths!



Washcloths are a perfect little crochet project because they work up quickly, but a simple square can be kind of boring - pineapple shaped washcloths to the rescue! You can work up these pineapples in two-tones (with a different colored top) or in one solid color.


I think a few of these little guys would make an adorable gift, but if you don't need a washcloth, this pattern can also be used to make a cute pineapple applique like the neon pink one I sewed onto a quick pillow cover.

If you worked the pattern with a lighter weight yarn and smaller hook, you would end up with as smaller pineapple - lots of applique possibilities!

Ready to get crocheting and make your own? Let's do it!
