Pineapple Neckwarmer (English), (translated from Rose's Portuguese pattern)

March 4, 2014:
**New photograph added of the foundation segments and of Row 1 and how the stitches are made.

**Also, I made the wording clearer on the 1st through 4th rows (this is the red text).  I was literally translating the language and I prefer to make the beginnings of the rows in the corrected text.
---------------
**November 25, 2011:
I started working up my first Pineapple Neckwarmer scarf yesterday on the road, and I decided upon using Bernats Baby Coordinates Yarn (I had a partial skein of this), and a size H hook (Clover brand).


  Upon working up my first pineapple neckwarmer, not only did I discover that I made some minor typos in the pattern, there is also an adjustment in the length of the main body which needs to be noted in the pattern.  Basically the length in my sample on rows 5 - 19, was not long enough.  Maybe if a larger yarn and larger hook were used, this wouldn't be the case.


    In order for the length to fit me, it needed to measure 19 inches (without the keyhole rows or the pineapples).  I've also added a photograph on how I did a measurement and how it's supposed to look before making the keyholes and pineapples.  My sample with the Coordinates baby yarn and the H hook had to be 29 rows instead of 19 rows.


   I am typing in the corrections, as noted in the red fonts.  Where you see the red fonts, is where a correction or an adjustment was made.


I received a reply from Rose at pinkrosecrochet.blogspot.com.  She gave me permission to repost this neckwarmer (which I translated to English), on my own blog.

Hi Rose,
Great purse! Thank you.

Can I ask you one more quick question? I managed to translate into English (with the help of your video), the Abacaxi pattern (neckwarmer).

May I post the English version to my blog, please? I am awaiting your reply and thank you. :) :)

Here you go and enjoy!  :)


Pineapple Neckwarmer 

(Golhina Abacaxi da Rose)



**Materials:  Worsted weight yarn (I imagine you might want a soft yarn), 1 pin back, white glue or hot glue, large-eyed sewing needle
**Hook size ... I haven't determined yet.  I need to work up one of these first, but I'm guessing either an F, G or an  H hook.



Shell:  3 Dc, ch 2, 3 dc in indicated place or stitch.

Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC):  YO; starting from the front, place hook from front to back to front around the post of indicated stitch in row below.  Complete as a dc.
Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC):  YO; starting from the back, place hook from back to front to back around the post of indicated stitch in row below.  Complete as a dc.
YO:
 Yarn Over

Beg:  Beginning



To begin foundation (segments):

*Note, this will not be a traditional foundation chain.  Instead, think of it as 5 "groups of loops."  I added a photo for clarity.


Ch 3, 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook (segment made)

Ch 3, 1 dc in side (top of dc just made) 4 times (4 segments made).  You will have 5 segments total as your foundation row.

*These are what the segments will look like.  Try to make your dc stitches a little loose so that this will not curl up.




Turn work so that wrong side is now facing.  This photo shows the right side of the segments.



In 1st segment:

Work a ch-3 (this will be counted as a double crochet stitch).



Work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in same place (you will work these stitches in this first little segment or loop).



In 2nd segment:
Work 1 dc in 2nd (middle) segment.

In 3rd segment:
3 Dc, ch 2, 3 dc.

In 4th segment:
Work 1 dc.

In 5th segment:
3 Dc, ch 2, 3 dc, 1 dc in 1st ch of beg ch-3 (the very 1st chain you made at the beginning), turn.



*top example in this photo are the wrong side of the segments turned to face you.

**bottom of this photo is the first row completed and what it will look like.

Row 2: 
Chain 3 (counts as beginning dc), Shell in next ch-2 sp (Shell in Shell just made), 1 FPDC around next dc between Shells (the ridge just made is facing you), Shell in next Shell, 1 FPDC around next dc between Shells, Shell in last Shell, 1 dc in top of turning ch-3 (at the beginning of Row 1); turn.

Row 3:
Chain 3 (counts as beginning dc), Shell in next Shell, 1 BPDC around next dc between Shells (ridge is facing away), Shell in next Shell, BPDC around next dc between Shells, Shell in last Shell, 1 dc in top of turning ch-3; turn.

Row 4:
Chain 3 (counts as beginning dc), Shell in next Shell, FPDC around next dc between Shells, Shell in next Shell, FPDC around next dc between Shells, Shell in last Shell, 1 dc in top of turning ch-3; turn.

Repeat Rows 3 and 4 for a total of 19 rows, to measure 19 inches.  At the end of last row, turn.



*My sample with the Bernat Coordinates Baby yarn and a size H hook, had to be 29 rows to be 19 inches.  Just add more than 19 rows until your piece measures 19 inches.


Also, try in on at this point.  It needs to fit about like this:


Yuck, I look terrible without makeup on!

Row 20 (keyhole row):
St st in 1st sc, sl st across next 3 dc, sl st in ch-2 sp, ch 3, 2 dc in same sp as ch-3, ch 2, 3 dc in same sp.
Work segment as follows:  ch 3, 1 dc in 1st ch of ch-3 just made.
Skipping center Shell, work Shell in last Shell; turn.

Row 21:
Sl st across 1st 3 dc, sl st into ch-2 sp, ch 3, 2 dc in same sp as ch-3, ch 2, 3 dc in same sp, 7 dc in segment, Shell in next Shell; turn.

Row 22 (Base of Pineapple Row):
Sl st across 1st 3 dc, sl st into ch-2 sp, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same ch-2 sp, ch 1, (dc in next dc, ch 1) 7 times, ch 1, Shell in last Shell; turn.

Row 23:
Sl st across 1st 3 dc, sl st into ch-2 sp, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same sp, ch 3, skip next ch-1 sp and next dc, sc in next ch-1 sp, (ch 3, sc in next ch-1 sp), 5 times, ch 3, Shell in last Shell; turn.

Row 24:
St st across 1st 3 dc, sl st into ch-2 sp, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same sp, ch 3, skip next ch-3 sp, sc in next ch-3 sp (ch 3, sc in next ch-3 sp) 4 times, ch 3, Shell in last Shell; turn.

Rows 25 - 27:
Repeat Row 24 having 1 less ch-3 sp in Pineapple until only one ch-3 sp remains in pineapple; turn.

Row 28:
Sl st across 1st 3 dc, sl st into ch-2 sp, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same sp, ch 3, sc in ch-1 sp of pineapple, ch 3, Shell in last Shell; turn.

Row 29:
Sl st across 1st 3 dc, sl st into ch-2 sp, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same sp, sl st in last Shell.

Fasten off leaving a length for sewing with a large-eyed sewing needle.

Working on opposite side of foundation ch (5 segments at beginning of pattern), make the 2nd Pineapple starting with Row 20.

At the end of Row 29, fasten off and sew in end well with a large-eyed sewing needle.

Optional:
Make a 3D Irish crochet rose (or a comparable motif or other flower or your choice), in a contrasting color or same color.  Attach a pin to back of Rose (or other flower/motif), and fasten it to scarf just above the keyhole, so that it hides where the halves of scarf connect.  Use the photograph as a guide to placement.

  6. I love the neck warmer but I think you may have made some counting mistakes at least in the pineapple design.....where you counted 3 dc? instead of 2dc there somewhere. I am in Australia and I had to re-translate it as we use trebles instead of dc's, and a few other ways of calling the stitches, hence I thought maybe there was this counting mistake. I apologise if I am wrong...still I love the whole neck warmer....and will make it soon, regards...Yaddy

  9. Hi, I'm hoping you can help clear up my confusion with these instructions. I've only got to the second segment so far though I have to admit, the first foundation segment looks odd.

    Anyway, it says:

    In 2nd segment:
    Work 1 dc in 2nd (middle) segment.

    How can I work into the second segment when this actual part creates the 2nd segment?

    Many thanks! :)

  10. First of all, you do NOT look terrible without makeup! Whit those big blue eyes you are absolutely BEAUTIFUL. With makeup you must be outstanding!

    Anyway, I find that using a pin for flowers or anything else that is to be attached to something crochet is dangerous for the piece. The pin more often than not gets caught somehow when you are trying to remove it. I find that using the appropriate size of the spring or French barrette is much better since it rarely gets caught and when it does it's easier to get it loose & the barrette fits easily in between the stitches. It also holds it in an upright position as apposed to the sometimes drooping effect that a pin can create. Thanks for all the wonderful patterns. They're GREAT! :-D

    1. Thank you, Kathryn. :)
      Great idea about using a barrette instead of a pin. I had not thought of that and you are right. I would hate to get stuck with a pin or snag my crochet fabric or crochet stitches removing the flower attachment. Many thanks for the suggestion and for the compliment. Thanks also for visiting my blog! :) :)

    1. This doesn't start out with the traditional foundation chain. Instead, you will ch 3, 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook (segment made). Then you will ch 3, 1 dc in the top of dc just made for 4 times (4 segments made). You will have 5 segments total as your foundation row.
      Hope this helps you out. Also, I have some close-up photos to guide you. :)

  14. Thank you so much for this. My mother used to make doilies with pineapples and I just loved them. She made a tablecloth too. I have it. I just think this scarf is gorgeous. Oh I see your from Louisiana I have cousins there. I don't know much about blogs. Do you talk to people on them or just read them? Have never done that. Would love to get to know you.

    1. Hi Jean. You should be safe making this with 4 ounces of worsted weight #4 yarn, but I've never weighed one of my finished pineapple neckwarmers before.
      So to be on the safe side, I would use a 4 oz skein. Of rather have some yarn leftover instead of almost running out.
      Thanks for your kind words . :)

  16. Hi Lee Ann,
