Newborn Pineapple Baby Set Crochet Pattern

Hi Ya'll!

My name is Ashley Leither, I am the crochet designer behind Ashley Leither Designs.  6 years ago, I was a stay at home mom to 2 little girls and I was looking for a craft that I could do while my girls played but I also wanted a craft that was safe for them if they got into it.  When my daughter Holley received a crochet hat from a Facebook giveaway, I fell in love with crochet, the beautiful texture of this hat was absolutely amazing! Right then I knew I needed to learn how to crochet! So I did, I taught myself to crochet from the help of learn to crochet books and YouTube videos and I haven't stopped since.  6 years and 3 little girls later, I am still amazed by crochet texture and it is my ultimate favorite to design with! Since then I have designed over 250 patterns, recorded tutorials, and written 2 books. Today I want to share with you this fun Pineapple Baby Pattern just in time for summer!
