Pineapple Square Afghan

This was made for a friend of mine for her birthday. Love this pattern. Takes one skein of yarn per square (back when skeins were a full 4 ozs.). I use a ch 3 joining, which means that I don't have to sew the squares together. Can you tell the pineapple design is one of my favorites?

12 squares make the entire afghan. (Displayed on a queen size bed. Afghan measures 55" x 72") This yellow color happens to be my friend's favorite. Red Heart yarn was used.

Here is a close up of the joining.

Kind of has the look of a trellis, doesn't it? Then I add just a simple shell edging.

This pattern was taken from an old Family Circle Magazine 10/20/83

I made this afghan once and forgot how pretty it was. Am going to have to go and try to find the pattern again!
