My stepson lives in Maui, Hawaii, with his fiance. For their wedding in early July, I had in my mind a completely white, airy, non-scratchy, washable blanket they could use on cool evenings. (Yes, there are cool evenings in Hawaii.) A "pineapple" pattern was perfect! I originally started with a different pattern and different yarn, but the results weren't quite right. I switched to the Playful Pineapples pattern with different yarn and that didn't work either. The silvery tone of the New White color was perfect! So, here it is!

The leaflet contains afghans for babies, but with adjustments they are easily made into full-size afghans. The Playful Pineapples baby blanket pattern uses sport weight yarn, an F hook, and produces a 34-inch x 44-inch afghan. With adjustments of using worsted weight yarn, a G hook, and a longer starting chain (the repeat pattern is 36 stitches, so the starting chain is 36 + 19 stitches), this finished blanket is 50 inches x 70 inches.

WOW I had done the same thing with this baby pineapple pattern, but it seems you have more pinapples in you're larger one, I just love the pineapple pattern. If you don't mind I would like very much if you could send me the pattern you used to make you're full size one. you can contact me at TDUFRESNE3@AOL.COM Many thanks in advance. Theresa

Thank you, Theresa! I haven't checked email in a while so this is a very late response.
