This pattern was such fun to make and its bright cheery colors make me yearn for spring! I used Lion Brand Mandala Baby in the Honeydukes* colorway and I was very pleased with the end result. If you are interested in reading more about Lion Brand Mandala you can head on over to my review here. My love for Lion Brand Mandala began with one of the first patterns I published here on the blog the Sassy Autumn Cowl and I haven’t looked back since!

The pattern is an easy repeat — a row of filet and a row of pineapple stitches. The pineapple stitch works really well with the lighter weight Lion Brand Mandala line. It is like a puff stitch but it isn’t bulky because of the smaller weight yarn. I have included a video tutorial below to explain the stitch.
I used two complete cakes of yarn and produced a fairly large scarf at approximately 64″ x 27″. I had originally intended on only using 1 cake but the finished item was a little smaller than I liked. The pineapple is a bit of a yarn eater so I started on a second cake and used it all up just to see how big that would make it. You could certainly stop at any point or even grab a third cake and make a shawl. Entirely up to you!
The double arches edging I used for the scarf is just the right finish on this — flirty and feminine and so pretty! Basically it is two rows of arches and the second row of arches is just a little taller than the first.
