Pineapple Head Hair Kerchief -free crochet pattern-


I find a lot of the time when I'm designing something with a special feature (such as the pineapple), that it inspires me to create another pattern using the same feature.  My recent Pineapple Up Barefoot Sandals pattern along with another hair kerchief pattern (that I have yet to write up) are the inspiration for this pattern.  This is a great accessory for the summer, and it is a fun item to make!

If you're new to the pineapple crochet, I've added a photo tutorial to help you out!

  1. Can you use 4 ply 100% cotton instead of 3 ply? If so what size hook would I use with 4 ply?

  2. I started and it's coming out much bigger. Not sure how to make it smaller.

  3. Robin use a smaller hook till you get the right size that you want.
