  1. Ch 1, turn.

Work 13 sc evenly across to the other midpoint, 3 sc in the next edge, work 13 sc evenly to the top corner, 2 sc in the corner. Sl st to the first sc to join, ch 1, turn. (64)

    Round 2: 1 sc in the first sc,  (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next sc [top corner], 1 sc in each of the next 15 sc, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next sc [midpoint corner], 1 sc in each of the next 15 sc,  (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next sc [bottom corner], 1 sc in each of the next 15 sc,  (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next sc [midpoint corner], 1 sc in each of the next 14 sc. Finish off and weave in your ends. (72)

Talk about a well detailed tutorial. Even in the step by step pictures there's some more help so you don't get a different result. I followed this tutorial religiously, I loved this stitch but I didn't know it was this cool.

Th d pineapple stitch is a classic. It's been around since before I was born. It's the first pattern my grand mother taught me. She used it for table cloths and be d spreads. This is an excellent project. It's written in a way that is easy to understand and follow.
