Is there a free pattern for the pineapple shawl?


It wasn't actually a shawl pattern, but a thingy from a chair set. The pattern can be found here -
www.angelfire.com/folk/celtwich/PineFan.html

One thing to check if you make it, is to make sure you have 11 spaces at the end of round 5, because you need 11 'spokes' to work off

i'm usually not a pineapple kind of girl, but i saw your shawl and i was like  Shocked  SO PRETTY!! i looked at the chair thingy pattern which looks easy enough, but how did you get it big enough to be a shawl...?  it seems like a small shawl as the chair thingy... or am i misreading something?

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"

Would you believe me if I said it was a highly technical mathamatical process?  Huh


nah..didn't think so... Roll Eyes

The original pattern calls for impossibly small thread and hook. I used 8ply cotton and a 4mm/G hook, which got me a shawl 47 inches wide and 28 deep. In Crochetville, where I found the idea, others have successfully used a K hook and yarn of some kind

nooooooo. I can't say how many yards I used, because my cotton came off a hank (?) - one of those big loops anyway. I know I used a bit over two of the wound balls.

I just weighed it, and the weight is 8 ounces. G hook

Someone else used 2 and a half skeins of Simply Soft with a J hook.

Another one was made with Simply Soft and a K hook - that one ended up 58 inches wide and 36 inches deep.

Hope that helps!

lovely. i'm sure i can figure it out from all your helpful directions. and someday i might have a  Shocked shawl, too!

i did indeed go to the yarn store last night, got some  yarn, but I didn't get specific yarn for the shawl yet - trying to decide which color i want to do!
