Tunisian Crochet Pineapple Bag
Long ago when I made my Tunisian Berry Tea Cozy a friend of mine mentioned that she could see the same stitches being used for a pineapple bag. I could totally see it too but was really scared to try working the Tunisian berries in the round.
I got started on the base right away then set it aside for almost a year! It wasn't until I decided I wanted to add berries to my cloud 9 slippers that I finally decided to give it a try. I started the piece using yellow and green but I didn't like how it was turning out so I frogged it. (You know, rip-it, rip-it, rip-it out) I worked the piece all in one colour and it worked up really fast once you get the hang of it.
For this Tunisian Crochet Pineapple Bag you will need a double ended US J10/6.00mm. To work up this pattern you will need a basic understanding of Tunisian in the round and be a competent crocheter. This pattern is written more like a regular crochet pattern. It uses the basics of Tunisian crochet, the afghan stitch and stitch notes. I’ve made it as easy as possible for competent crocheters to work up. Below are some resources that will help you to work up this pattern..
