What can possibly say ‘Summer’ more than a pineapple? Absolutely nothing! I LOVE Summer, It has to be my favorite season.
What is the first thing you see all over the place when the summer decor starts coming out. Pineapples! Whether printed on decor or shirts, you see pineapples. This amigurumi pineapple would make a perfect addition to any room in your house for decor or even make one as a gift.
Here is a little trivia for y’all. Does anybody know what the green top part of a pineapple is called? It’s called the crown. (I didn’t know what it was called myself, I had to google it 😉 )
Anyway, I put together some photos of how I sewed on the crown leaves so y’all would have an idea of how it went together. I have included the photos in the pdf version also (it is available in my Etsy shop, link is below)
The finished pineapple is approx 10” tall

Things you will need:
- Crafters Secret Worsted Weight yarn in Jellybean and Yellow (I now use I Love This Yarn)
- 3mm & 5mm Hook
- Stitch Marker
- Yarn Needle
- 7 st x 10 r = 4’’ in hdc (with 3mm hook)
- Ch = Chain
- SC = Single Crochet
- DC = Double Crochet
- Sl St = Slip Stitch
- hdc = half double crochet
- tr = treble crochet
- blsc = back loop single crochet
- blhdc = back loop half double crochet
- blhdc2tog = back loop half double crochet 2 stitches together
- blsc2tog = back loop single crochet 2 stitches together
Blhdc2 tog are worked just like a regular hdc2tog, just in the back loop only. Same with blsc2tog. I like how just making a stitch through the back loop only gives the pineapple more texture.

Crown( the green top of the pineapple):
With 3mm hook and jellybean yarn 6 sc in magic circle
Rnd 1: *2 sc in 1st st, sc in next st* repeat * to * around (9)
Rnd 2: *2 blsc in 1st st, blsc in next 2 st* repeat * to * around (12)

Rnd 13: *sc2tog, sc in next 2 st* repeat * to * around (9)
Start to stuff
Rnd 14: *sc2tog, sc in next st* repeat * to * around (6)
Rnd 15: sc2tog around (3)
Cut yarn and sew together. Attach the crown to the top of the pineapple using the front loops from round 2 as a guide.
This is what it will look like so far:
Now, we will make the rest of the crown.
Leaves (make 5):
With 5mm hook, ch 12
Row 1: dc into 3rd ch from hook and all the way until last st, 3 dc in last st. Turn to work back down the other side, 2 dc in 1st st. dc in each st across. Turn
Row 2: ch 2, hdc in next 10 st, 2 hdc in next st, dc & 2 tr in next st, 2 tr in next st, tr & dc in next st, hdc down rest of st.
When you reach the bottom ch 1 and do 5 sc evenly across bottom. Cut yarn, leaving a long tail to sew onto pineapple.
Now, you can start attaching the leaves to the pineapple. I like to stretch the leaf around the bottom of the crown nice and snug and start stitching it together
The pictures will give you an idea of where I place the leaves. Once all the leaves are attached to the pineapple, you might have to stitch some of the leaves together part of the way up to keep them from falling down like this:
Once you have the leaves all in their place, cut the yarn and weave in your ends.
Now you can make a whole bunch of pineapples!
