crochet:: hawaiian granny square pattern

I am thoroughly enjoying my crafting right now.

I am so thankful that I have hobbies to take my mind off my troubles.

Loving the hooker therapy.

No big secret here ~ my dreamy layers pillow is just a giant hawaiian granny square.

I have searched the interwebs to find a pre-typed version to share to no avail.

So, I must undertake this on behalf of our great-great-great-great-great-grannies.

 My pattern for this has always been scribbled on paper, copied out of one of my Granma Amy’s books years ago.

I have no idea to whom the credit should go for this old granny square pattern.   But here it is…

hawaiian granny square pattern::

pineapple stitch is (yo, insert hook, and draw up loop 4 times) yo and draw through 9 loops, then ch 2

size “H” hook for worsted weight

ch 8 and join with a sl st to make ring (or magic ring – your choice)

rnd 1 – ch 1 (this counts as 1st loop of 1st pineapple stitch), make 8 pineapple sts in ring with 2 ch between each, sl st in 1st st

rnd 2 – 1 pineapple stitch in ch sp before sl st, *ch 2, 1 pineapple st in next sp, ch 2, (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) in next pineapple st to form corner, ch 2, 1 pineapple st in next sp*  repeat from * around and sl st into 1st pineapple st

rnd 3 – 1 pineapple stitch in ch sp before sl st, *(ch 2, 1 pineapple st in each sp to the corners), ch 2, (1dc, ch 2, 1dc) into the sp between dc groups, ch2*, sl st in 1st pineapple

repeat rnd 3

Thanks for stopping by!

    I love your patterns! Simply gorgeous. I’d love to see them added to the pattern database on Ravelry—-any plans to do so?

      Thanks for the kind words. I love Ravelry, but really haven’t thought about getting my stuff together and posting over there. I may just need to re-think that and give it a try!

    Im crocheting this pattern and my square is coming out round. What am i doing wrong?


    • yarnchick40 · June 9, 2011

      Hi Rebecca,
      If you send me a photo, I might be able to be sure what the issue is. My email is
      The only thing I can think of without seeing it, is this section that starts in round 2 for the corners: (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) in next pineapple st to form corner
      Let me know :)

    How many rounds would you suggest for a blanket? Also, what kind of finishing edge would you suggest?


  15. Lovely, and I shared!
