This is “Mom’s Pineapple Basket” from Crochet Memories

Pineapple in the title has nothing to do with the fruit, and all to do with this particular crochet pattern. It is very popular and impressive pattern, and rather easy, I think. Anyway, it is one third of the second theme at Crochet Talk’s Ultimate Crocheted Kitchen Gift Basket

The idea is to crochet one item a week and thus create a nice gift basket in a month without much work. All you need to do is to pick a theme and crochet 🙂

*** The pattern is at freepatterns.com. All the patterns there are free FOR MEMBERS – but it doesn’t cost anything. You just need to register…

I love the “Crochet Talk’s Ultimate Crocheted Kitchen Gift Basket” – it’s so beautifully organized and someone has really worked a lot to put everything in neat little boxes 🙂 The only problem is that it was created 2000 and now is 2007… a LOT happens in 7 years.

So – here’s the updated version of it.

The idea is to crochet one item a week and thus create a nice gift basket in a month without much work. All you need to do is to pick a theme and crochet 🙂
