Things you need:

  • 100 yards main color (I used purple) fingering yarn. 50 yards pineapple color times two (so 100 yards split in two yellow colors) and 50 yards of green (or 25 yards split into two green colors, I used two) I had yarn left over, this is what I started with.

  • Size 2.75 mm knitting needles


Gauge is 7 stitch for 1 inch (7 rows) when working color-work in the round on the pineapple body section (the yellow)

Legging measures 7 x 3.7 inches with no stretch applied and is made for a 6 month old baby (or a skinny 1 year old, as mine can still wear them and hes 11 months old). Add more sts/pineapple repeats to make bigger.
