Week 24 of The 50 Stitches crochet along is the Pineapple stitch, a type of puff stitch but it has a pinched top. This stitch is quick to work up and has a nice thick fabric, but be warned, it is a yarn eater.

If you would like to know how to crochet the Pineapple stitch for any size project, you can see how here

You can find the links for all the squares in the crochet along here. The free pattern is below, but if you’d like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for £5 from Ravelry

This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below.

For this square you will need a 4mm hook

Start by making a foundation chain of 32

Row 1. turning chain counts as a stitch. In the 4th chain from your hook make a pineapple stitch (yarn over and pull up a loop 4 times. You will have 9 loops on your hook. 

9 loops on your hook

Yarn over and pull your hook through 8 loops. Yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops) chain 1.

Chain 1*

Repeat between *and* ending in a chain 1 before making a dc in the last stitch.

Rows 3-10. Repeat row 2

The Border

Sc in each stitch across the top and bottom. Make 3sc in the side of each row.

You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)
