Welcome your guests with a pineapple basket on your table! The crochet pattern is fun and the pineapple has such a rich history. In Colonial days it was considered a great honor if the hostess had the pineapple as a centerpiece on her table, as it meant she would spare no expense to care for her guests.

In 1681 Christians held this as a symbol of their faith, as the plant gives it’s own life, to produce a single fruit. You will find the lovely pineapple carved into furniture, and architecture all over the world.

This intermediate design works up very quick! You will be able to make a couple in an evening.

There are more pieces to come!
