Pattern Notes

The shawl is worked flat. Begun with a hexagonal-shaped, garter stitch core, the pineapple section of the shawl is incorporated by picking up stitches in a selvedge edge. A special pineapple stitch is worked throughout this section before finishing with a textural, picot bind off.

This Pineapple Stitch motif is worked over 12 sts and 4 rows, using a combination of knit and purl stitches, stitches elongated in a special way, and a bauble-stitch inspired short-row technique. The third row of the pattern repeat is worked using short rows, not unlike a bauble stitch.
