The second pattern in my Tropical Beach Mini Amigurumi pattern series features one of my other favourite things (besides flamingos) – pineapples! Pineapples and flamingos tend to go hand in hand, so of course this ittle guy had to be next on my list. And he’s not just any pineapple, he’s the coolest kid on the block with those flashy sunglasses! But underneath that prickly exterior he’s really just a big ol’ softie with soft, sweet, tasty flesh… well, that got dark fast. Sorry!

Mini Pineapple Amigurumi Pattern
This pineapple is the coolest pineapple on the block, with his hot pink sunglasses and prickly exterior. Underneath that tough shell, though, his true self is soft, squishy, and lovable!
Approx. 4” tall

- Size C / 2.75mm crochet hook – I highly recommend the ergonomic Clover Amour hooks
- Fiberfill stuffing

- Keychain: I purchased mine on Amazon, they have a 1” split key ring, a short chain, and an open jump ring.
Terms & Abbreviations
- Mc: Magic Circle
- Ch: Chain
- Sl: Slip Stitch
- Sc: Single Crochet
- Inc: Increase

- BLO: Crochet in back loop only
- Bobble Stitch (4 Dc)
When reading the pattern, (_,_)*x means that you repeat the instructions in the bracket “x” number of times. For example, (Sc 1, Inc)*6 means to repeat (Sc 1, Inc) 6 times. The number in brackets at the end of each row is the total number of stitches you will have when you finish that row.
Bobble Stitch Instructions
The Bobble Stitch is used to create the nubbly texture on the pineapple. The stitch consists of your desired number of Double Crochets (4 Dc in this case) worked into a single stitch and secured by one loop, to create a texture that pops out from your work
Step 1: Yarn over, insert hook into the stitch where you are going to make the bobble. Yarn over, draw up a loop – this is like the beginning of a normal Double Crochet. You will now have three loops on your hook.
Step 2: Yarn over, pull yarn through the first two loops only. You will now have two loops on your hook.
Step 3: Next, instead of finishing the Double Crochet like you normally would, yarn over and insert the hook back into the stitch. Yarn over, draw up a loop, then yarn over and pull through only the first two loops again. You will now have three loops on your hook.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 two more times until you have five loops on your hook.
Step 5: Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on your hook. This will complete the bobble!
Round 1: Sc 6 in a Magic Circle (6)
Round 2: Inc*6 (12)
Round 3: (Sc 1, Inc)*6 (18)
Round 4: (Sc 2, Inc)*6 (24)
Round 5: BLO – Sc around (24)
Round 6: (Bobble, Sc)*12 (24) – make sure to push the bobbles to the outside as you go
Round 7: Sc around (24)
Round 8: (Bobble, Sc)*12 (24)
Round 9: Sc around (24)
Round 10: (Bobble, Sc)*12 (24)
Round 11: Sc around (24)
Round 12: (Bobble, Sc)*12 (24)
Round 13: (Sc 2, Dec)*6 (18)
Round 14: (Bobble, Sc)*9 (18)
Begin stuffing the pineapple, and continue to stuff as you finish the last two rounds.
Round 15: (Sc 1, Dec)*6 (12)
Round 16: Dec*6 (6)
Finish off and weave in all ends.
Leaves (Make 5)
Using green and leaving a long end:
Round 1: Ch 8
Round 2: Join to the first Ch with a Sc to form a circle. Sc into the remaining 7 chain stitches. (8)
Round 3: (Sc 3, Inc)*2 (10)
Rounds 4-5: Sc around (10)
Round 6: (Sc 3, Dec)*2 (8)
Rounds 7-8: Sc around (8)
Round 9: (Sc 2, Dec)*2 (6)
Rounds 10-11: Sc around (6)
Round 12: (Sc 1, Dec)*2 (4)
Finish off, flatten the leaf, then use part of the long end from Round 1 to sew the opening at the base of the leaf flat. Do not weave in this end, you will use the rest of it to sew the leaf to the pineapple. Weave in the end from Round 12 at the tip of the leaf.
Lens (Make 2)
Round 1: Sc 6 in a Magic Circle
Round 2: Inc*6 (12)
Finish off and weave in the ends. There isn’t much space to weave in ends, so if this is too tricky then you can leave them for now and run them through the middle of the pineapple when you sew the sunglasses on.
Step 1: Joining with pink yarn to any stitch on the first lens: Sc 8, Ch 1, then attach the second lens with a Sc.
Step 2: Continuing around the second lens: Sc 7, 3Inc, Sc 3. (Figure 1)
Step 3: You will now work 3 stitches across the bridge of the sunglasses as follows: Sc into the base of the first pink stitch, Sc into the bump at the back of the chain, Sc into the base of the second pink stitch. (Figure 2)
Step 4: Sc 3, 3Inc, Slip stitch into the first stitch from Step 1 and finish off.
Sew the sunglasses to the pineapple and weave in all ends.
Assembling the Pineapple
Sew the outer four leaves in a circle around the top of the pineapple then sew the fifth leaf in the middle. Sew the sunglasses to the pineapple.
Read on if you’d like to turn your pineapple into a keychain. Otherwise, your Mini Pineapple is done!
Optional: Adding a Keychain
To create a yarn loop for attaching the keychain:
Using yellow or green: Ch 11, then Sc into 2nd Ch from hook and Sc into the remaining 9 stitches (10)
Cut the yarn, leaving a long end.
The keychains I purchased consist of a split ring attached to a chain, and a separate open jump ring. If you have something similar, follow my instructions for attaching an open jump ring to your pineapple.
If you have a keychain where the jump ring is already closed and can’t be easily opened, then skip to my instructions for attaching a closed jump ring to your pineapple.
If you have an OPEN jump ring on your keychain:
Join the yarn into a loop and stitch it securely to the pineapple.
To attach the keychain, insert the open jump ring through the chain of the keychain and then through the yarn loop you just made. Use pliers to close the jump ring tightly.
