Pineapple Crown Scarf Crochet Pattern

Maker
1/29/2020

Hey there, THN readers!  I am Sarah Summers the maker and designer behind The Plush Pineapple, and I am so excited to be back here at The Hook Nook to share another design with all of you!  If we have not yet met, I am a Hawaiian-born, half-Filipino maker and designer with a love of all things tropical.  When I started this maker journey, I wanted my brand to be known for always having a flair for summery things even if it is just a slight nod or subtle hint.  The Pineapple Crown Scarf is no different!

The Pineapple Crown Scarf is part of The Pineapple Crown Collection.  This collection is in the process of being released across several different blogs including my own blog.  The inspiration behind the collection came from the quote, "Be a Pineapple.  Stand tall, wear a crown, and stay sweet on the inside."  Sometimes life gets tough, and I mean really tough.  Major life changes can come about in a fleeting moment or as the result of one decision.  These circumstances can leave a giant question mark on the future.  In times like these, remember that the only way out is through!  You can either choose to pout and feel miserable, or you can choose to pick yourself up and move forward the best way you know how!  Just as The Pineapple Crown Scarf has subtle texture that is reminiscent of pineapples, my hope is for it to also be a subtle reminder that in the difficult moments, sometimes you just need to straighten that crown and move forward towards loving friends, brighter days, and sweeter victories!

Skill Level – Intermediate

Gauge

•             16 HDC/13 rows = 4” x 4” (10 cm x 10 cm)

Materials

All Your The Hook Nook Supplies can be found right here.

•             DK (3) weight yarn (1,092 yards for the scarf and 819 yards for the cowl)

o             Recommended:  Small Stuff by The Hook Nook

•             US I/9 5.5mm Crochet Hook

•             Yarn Needle

•             Scissors

•             2 Faux fur pompoms (optional)

Abbreviations

•             YO – yarn over

•             CH – Chain

•             SL ST – Slip stitch

•             PM – Place marker

•             HDC – Half double crochet

•             FPDC – Front post double crochet

•             DC – Double crochet

Notes

•             The scarf is worked as a long tube in the round from one end of the scarf to the other end.  It is begun by joining a starting CH to form a ring.

•             Finished measurements are as follows:

•             Cowl – Length:  42” (102 cm), Width:  9” (23 cm)

•             Scarf – Length (not including poms):  63” (160 cm), Width:  9” (23 cm)

•             Beginning chains DO NOT count as a stitch.

•             I recommend using an invisible SL ST and a chainless starting stitch when joining each round.  (Working continuously in the round is not a preferred method for this project as this method causes the design to shift gradually and take on a diagonal appearance.)

Special Stitches

•             This project uses crochet cables.  Detailed progress photos for working these cables are included in the pattern.

•             This project also uses the camel stitch otherwise known as working in the third loop.  You can find a picture tutorial for working this stitch on my blog.

•             I recommend using an invisible SL ST and chainless starting stitch to join and begin rounds in this project.  If these techniques are unfamiliar to you, you can find a picture tutorial on my blog.

Round 27-30:  HDC in each stitch around.  PM.  (72)

Leaving approximately a 20” (50 cm) tail, fasten off.  Turn scarf inside out and weave in only the ends inside the scarf.  Leave the two tails on the ends for finishing.

Finishing

•             Scarf – Thread one of the tails onto your tapestry needle.  Using a basting stitch, weave the tail through the top of each stitch around.  Pull tight to cinch the end closed.  Weave the tail through opposite sides of the opening several times to secure.  Do not cut yarn.  Repeat this process for the other end.  Using the remaining tails, attach a faux fur pompom to each end.  Weave in all ends.

•             Cowl – Lay the scarf lengthwise in front of you.  Fold each end towards the middle.  Fold each end in half.  Position the halves so that the bottom of the left half is under the bottom of the second half, and the top of the left half is between the top and bottom of the right half.  Thread one of the tails onto your tapestry needle.  Sew all eight layers together with a basting stitch.  Weave in all ends.

I hope that this project not only keeps you warm, stylish, and cozy this winter season but also serves as a reminder that we all have a crown, and we deserve to wear it. Sometimes circumstances cause us to lose it.  Sometimes life knocks it off.  Whatever the case may be, readjust that crown, and press on!  And if you can’t find it, look around, because there just might be a friend nearby dusting it off for you.
