Just about any Category 1 - Super Fine (sock or fingering weight) yarn can be used in this design. Larger plus sizes may be created be using Category 2 - Fine (sport or baby weight) yarn although this idea has not been thoroughly tested. I have also worked out the modifications for the Category 1 weight yarn and posted that information on my blog.

I have been a thread crocheter almost since learning how to crochet some 40 years ago or so. I just love everything about thread. But occasionally I do wander away from thread, but not very far!

I’ve tried crocheting with bulky yarn and it felt just like trying to crochet rope to me! But a fingering/sock weight yarn is just perfect for me to step out of my usual box, even if only a little bit.

I did keep to a very traditional thread crochet motif though, the Pineapple. There is something about this series of stitches that is just timeless and elegant. And they aren’t hard to do at all- just a bit of careful counting is required. The majority of this design is single crochet and chain stitches, with a handful of double and triple crochets here and there. You CAN crochet it- honest!

This Design was featured in the Design Wars Challenge the week of Monday, May 11, 2015 and won!

This design was the Happily Hooked Magazine Crochet Along Project for May 2018 and is available in the May 2018 issue of HHM
