FREE PATTERN: The Ananas Lovey (and a bonus!)

FREE PATTERN: The Ananas Lovey (and a bonus!)

Happy June! What better way to kick off the month than with not one but TWO free patterns! Scroll below for all the details on how to find the Pineapple Succulent Planter AND my new Ananas Lovey for free!

I am beyond thrilled to share that I am being featured for this month’s designer spotlight on the A Crafty Concept blog and sharing all the details on my popular pineapple succulent planter! Ashley has been a huge source of inspiration in my maker and designer journey, so I was completely over the moon when given the chance for a designer feature! Ashley’s creativity, positivity, encouragement and unwavering promotion of community over competition in our niche are such an impetus for growth and support. She truly makes you believe that you can get out there and do anything!

This month, I am sharing my pineapple succulent planter! This was one of the first patterns I designed and it has been an absolute favorite! The planter covers a 2-2.5 inch succulent and works up in about 30 minutes to an hour. The pineapple is a sign of “welcome” to others and represents friendship, hospitality, and warmth. With a cute little succulent, it is perfect for gifting to others or displaying as an accent in your home! I’m sharing the 2 inch planter pattern over on Ashley’s blog at A Crafty Concept or you can click over to my video tutorials to find my YouTube video with a full pattern tutorial from start to finish! I also have the pdf pattern available for $3.00 here in my Etsy and Ravelry shops. The pdf pattern includes photo tutorials and additional sizing for a 2.5-3 inch planter. Be sure to tag @_stuckonyoucrochet and @acraftyconcept with your finished makes!

But, that’s not all!

I love gifting coordinating sets, so when I started working on the pineapple planter feature, I just had to make a matching gift! Thus, the Ananas Lovey was designed! ‘Ananas’ is the French word for pineapple and I actually learned that most languages, aside from English, refer to pineapples as “ananas!” European explorers originally called the fruit ‘pineapple’ because they looked similar to pine cones!

The pineapple planter plus ananas lovey makes a great gift for parents and gift for baby, a perfect combination! The Ananas Lovey is a sweet little teether for new babies to cuddle. A teething ring or binky can be attached to the chain on the corner so they never go missing! Don’t have a baby to gift a lovey to? No problem! Without the added chain, the Ananas Lovey becomes a very cute, matching Ananas Trivet to display next to your pineapple planter when placing hot pots down in the kitchen. It would make the perfect housewarming gift to welcome a new neighbor! I always love versatile designs and this pattern gives a wide range of options.

I am sharing the pattern graph for FREE here, along with written instructions for the edging. If you need more help with your lovey, I have a pdf pattern available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops for $3.00 which includes written instructions for the main portion of your lovey as well as photo and video tutorials for visual learners. Check out the pdf pattern on Etsy or Ravelry or scroll down for the FREE pattern graph!

The edging will be worked around the main body of the lovey. In the first round, you will need to create stitches along either side. You should just space your stitches evenly along those sides.

Round 1:

Place 2 sc stitches into the first st and then sc x 27 across the top.

Place 3 sc stitches into the last stitch along the top. This will be come a corner.

Working along the side of the lovey, place 27 sc stitches, evenly spaced, along the edge. When you reach the bottom of the lovey, place 3 sc stitches in the first stitch along the bottom.

Sc x 27 across the bottom. Place 3 sc stitches into the last stitch to create the corner.

Work along the final side of the lovey and place 27 sc stitches, evenly spaced along the edge. When you reach the top of the lovey, place 1 sc into the same stitch that the first 2 sc stitches were placed to create your final corner.

Round 2:

Sl st in the next 4 stitches. You will now start to add your shell stitch around the edging.

*[skip 1 st, place 5 dc (shell) into the next stitch, sk 1 st, sl st] x 6

At the corner, skip 2 sts,  place 7 dc (corner shell) into the next stitch, sk 2 st, sl st*

Repeat from * to * 3 times to complete the edging around the lovey.

Finishing Touches:

After the final slip stitch, you should be at the top right corner of your lovey. If you would like to add a chain for a teething ring, ch 30 and then sl st back to the first chain. Tie off and weave in all ends. Add a teething ring to the chain and enjoy your new lovey!
