Peacock-Style Pineapple Coasters: Free Crochet Design

Here they are, my peacock-style pineapple coasters in six different colors and three different edging colors. I think they've turned out quite funky and modern.

I guess that most of you are familiar with the classic stitch pattern that is called the pineapple. While leafing through my late grandmother's craft magazines from the 1970s the other day, I noticed that this pattern was not referred to as pineapple, but as peacock. While the pattern with the chain stitches in the center is definitely reminiscent of pineapples, the shape is very much that of a peacock feather, so I, being obsessed with anything "peacocky," needed no further excuse to design my own motifs. And since I wanted a set of coasters that I could hang from the hooks on the vintage dish rack I have in my kitchen, I went for peacock-style pineapple coasters.

I started by making a small ring so that I could hang the coasters from the hooks and then built the peacock pineapple onto that ring. Then I worked a nice edging in a contrasting color for a funky look. I think the modern-looking coasters make a nice contrast with the more traditional tableware.







Next week I will have the pattern for you in both English and Dutch. I can give you some of the yarn details now - if you haven't already read them in my previous post. I used Scheepjes Catona Denim for the coasters and regular Catona for the edging. Catona Denim is a nice thick and soft cotton yarn very suitable for this kind of project and the regular Catona is a mercerized cotton yarn with a lovely sheen setting off the other yarn very nicely. I'll give you the info on the exact colors I used with the pattern.


In the Netherlands the yarn is available or can be ordered at any store that stocks Scheepjes yarn. Outside of The Netherlands you can order it at WoolWarehouse or at Deramores. *
