The Pineapple Motif has been around for a very long time and is considered to be a vintage addition to the art of crochet. This simple little pattern is very versatile in that it can be used for a wide variety of applications such as applique work using crochet thread and multiple pineapples to make shawls and blankets.
The waffle stitch is a great introduction for beginners looking to move into 3D textures and how to make your work stand out rather than just being another flat piece.
The great thing about the waffle stitch is that you can make just about anything with it: scarves, blankets, wash-cloths. If it’s in a square or rectangular shape that you can apply the waffle stitch to get that 3D effect.
