Wouldn’t this be pretty on your table, out on the porch, while the children are in the yard catching fireflies? A welcoming pineapple for your table. I love the wrapped DC stitch and the lacey design. Drop a battery operated tealight candle into the bottom and it will throw beautiful shadows all around. It’s the second in a series of three crochet patterns for you to enjoy this summer.
Keep Scrolling To Find The Pattern
I think these would be beautiful at a summer party. Wouldn’t they would look wonderful on the table with the matching “Welcome Home Pineapple Basket”? You could make several and hang them around the porch. Then just sit back and rest in the porch swing and listen to the peepers and occasional owl hooting up in the holler behind the house. Ahhhh…those are the kind of Summer blessings we experience on “My Side Of The Mountain”.
Did you know that since 1681, the pineapple has been recognized as a Christian symbol, as each pineapple plant gives its own life to produce a single fruit. This is my favorite bit of history about the pineapple

You are “HIGH” about the main post of the stitch. A normal BP HDC is worked under the top 3 loops of the HDC, around the main post. The High BP HDC will be “above” the main post, up high, directly under the top two loops.
