The Pineapple Crochet Top Pattern is such fun! I used a pretty shell stitch for the body of the top to give it some of that pineapple-y texture. And for the pineapple top I used the crocodile stitch. I used some cotton yarn so it’s an ideal top for summer. The fabric these stitches creates is solid, so your girl doesn’t need to wear anything underneath. It’s so cute with a pair of shorts! I just absolutely love how it turned out. I know you will, too!

For this top I used Sugar ‘n Cream cotton. While it’s not my favorite cotton, I do love the stitch definition. I think it really makes the shell stitch and the crocodile stitch pop!
