When I started to make crochet patterns I put a few up on Ravelry for free. I was unsure if my patterns were up to par and I didn’t want to sell anything I didn’t feel was good enough. As I got better I still added a few here and there that were free usually because they were small or common enough I didn’t think anyone would pay for them anyway. This is one of those patterns.
This pattern was created because I was putting off multiple other works in progress that I just had no desire to finish. See, when I procrastinate I typically do so by starting completely new projects which may or may not be interrupted by more procrastination. Luckily this one was easy and fast enough to do that I knocked it out and regained some crojo to finish at least one of my other projects.

Chillin’ Pineapple Bobble
Pattern By Lizz Jelsma
E or 3.50 MM Hook
Lion Brand Mandala Yarn in Thunderbird or any Sport Weight Yarn
Stitch Marker (to mark ends of rounds if needed)
CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
INC – Single Crochet Increase
DEC – Single Crochet Decrease

To make smaller or larger try varying the hook size and yarn weight. You will want a stitch that does not let fiberfill come through.
Pineapple Base In Yellow
Row 1: Create a magic circle and SC 6 into the circle then pull tight. You may also use a CH2 and 6 SC into the first chain then pull tight. Do not join. (6)
Row 2: INC 6 (12)
Row 3: *SC, INC* 6 times (18)
Row 4: *SC 2, INC* 6 times (24)
Row 5-13: SC 24 (24)Row 14: *DEC, SC 2* 6 times (18)

Row 15: *DEC, SC* 6 times (12)
Row 16: DEC 6, Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing, stuff with fiberfill, then weave tail through the remaining stitches and pull tight to close. Leave remaining tail for sewing.
Crown of Pineapple In Green
The crown is worked in a continuous piece and rolled together similar to a crochet rose.
*CH 6, SLST in second stitch from hook, SC in next stitch, HDC in next 3 stitches* Repeat from * to * until you have 5 points;
*CH 8, SLST in second stitch from hook, SC in next stitch, HDC in next 5 stitches* Repeat from * to * two times. You should have a total of eight points now.
*CH 10, SLST in second stitch from hook, SC in next stitch, HDC in next 7 stitches* Repeat from * to * three times. Finish off, leaving a 10” long tail for sewing. You should end with a total of eleven points.
Starting with the tallest points roll the piece together at the flat end keeping the base even. Using your tail sew through the bottom flat ends until the piece stays together on its own. Sew the entire piece to the finishing end of your pineapple body using a wip stitch around the base. Bring the remaining tail through the middle of the crown and use it to sew to the keyring. Weave in ends and finish off.
Sunglasses In Grey
CH 9, SC in second chain from hook, SC 6, 2SC in last chain; you will now be working on the opposite side of your chain. CH 2, DC 3, CH 2, SLST to next two chains, CH 2, DC 3, CH 2, SLST to first SC. Finish off leaving a 10” long tail for sewing.
Place the sunglasses on the pineapple where you want; sew to the pineapple, you may need to shape the glasses to your desired shape while sewing on.
