Rnd 2: Ch 4, * dc in next dc, ch 1, rep from * around, join to 3rd ch of ch-4.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in first space, * ch 5, sc in next space, rep from * around, end with ch 2, dc in first sc. (24 loops)
Rnd 4 & 5: * Ch 5, sc in next loop, rep from * around, end with ch 2, dc in the dc.

Rnd 7: * Ch 7, sc in next loop, rep from * around, end with ch 3, tr in dc, fasten off.
Make 2 more motifs the same.

First Pineapple:
Row 1: With right side facing, attach thread in any loop on last rnd of round motif, ch 3, in same loop make dc, ch 2 and 2 dc
(starting shell), ch 1, in next loop of motif make 2 dc, ch 5, 2 dc; ch 1, in next loop on motif make 2 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc (shell), ch 5,
turn.
Row 2: Shell in space of next shell (shell over shell), ch 1, 15 tr in next ch-5 space, ch 1, shell over shell, ch 5, turn.
Row 3: Shell over shell, ch 1, [tr in next tr, ch 1] 14 times, tr in next tr, ch 1, shell over shell, ch 5, turn.
Row 4: Shell over shell, ch 4, skip next ch-1 space, sc in next ch-1 space,  [ch 3, sc in next space] 13 times, ch 4, shell over shell,
ch 5, turn.
Rows 5 - 15: Shell over shell, ch 4, sc in next ch-3 loop, * ch 3, sc in next ch-3 loop, rep from * to next ch-4 space, ch 4, shell over
shell, ch 5, turn.
Row 16: Shell over shell, ch 4, sc in next ch-3 loop, ch 3, sc in next loop, ch 4, shell over shell, ch 5, turn.
Row 17: Shell over shell, ch 4, sc in ch-3 loop, ch 4, 2 dc in space of next shell, ch 1, sl st in space of last shell made, ch 1, 2 dc in
same space where last 2 dc were made, ch 5, turn, sl st in joining of previous 2 shells, fasten off.

Second Pineapple:
With right side of same pineapple motif facing, skip 1 loop on last rnd of motif following last pineapple, attach thread to next loop
on motif, starting with row 1, work same as for previous pineapple.
Third and Fourth Pineapple:
Work as for 2nd pineapple.

Work 4 pineapples on another round motif in the same manner. On the remaining round motif work 1 pineapple as before, then
skip 9 loops on this motif, attach thread in next loop and work 1 more pineapple.
With points of pineapples toward outer edge, place round motifs side by side on a flat surface, having a round motif with 4
pineapples at each side of the round motif with 2 pineapples. Sew the center free loop of each side of center round motif to
corresponding loop on each remaining round motif.

Edging:
Rnd 1: With the right side of a round motif with 4 pineapples facing, count up from the base of the 4th pineapple, attach thread to
4th ch-5 turning chain loop along its left edge, ch 1, sc in same loop, ch 5, * sc in 3rd ch-5 turning ch loop from base of next
pineapple, [ch 7, sc in next ch-5 turning chain loop] 11 times, ch 5, rep from * , end last rep with [ch 7, sc in next ch-5 turning chain
loop] 10 times, ch 3, tr in first sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 2, sc in next ch-7 loop, * [ch 8, sc in next loop] 10 times, ch 2, skip next ch-5 loop, sc in next loop, rep from * , end last
rep ch 4, tr in tr.
Rnd 3: Sc in next ch-8 loop, [ch 9, sc in next loop] 9 times, * sc in next ch-8 loop, ch 4, sl st in last ch-9 loop made, ch 4, sc in next
ch-8 loop, [ch 9, sc in next loop] 8 times, rep from * , end last rep ch 5, dtr in tr, join with sl st in first ch-9 loop, fasten off.
Rnd 4: Attach thread in next free ch-9 loop, ch 1, sc in same loop, * [ch 10, sc in same loop] twice, holding back on hook the last
loop of each tr, make 3 tr in next loop, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (cluster), [ch 10, cluster in same loop]
twice, [ch 10, sc in next loop] 3 times, ch 10, skip next 2 joined loops sc in next free ch-9 loop, rep from * omitting the sc at end of
last repeat, join.
Rnd 5: Sl st to center of next loop, ch 1, sc in same loop, * [ch 10, sc in next loop] 7 times, [ch 5, sc in next loop] twice, [ch 10, sc in
next loop] 34 times, [ch 5, sc in next loop] twice, rep from * once more, omitting the sc at end of repeat, join.
Rnd 6: Sl st to center of next loop, ch 1, sc in same loop, * [ch 10, sc in next loop] 6 times, ch 8, skip next 2 ch-5 loops, sc in next
loop, [ch 10, sc in next loop] 7 times, ** ch 7, sc in next loop, [ch 10, sc in next loop] 8 times, rep from ** once more, ch 7, sc in next
loop, [ch 10, sc in next loop] 7 times, ch 8, skip next 2 ch-5 loops, sc in next loop, rep from * once more, omitting the sc at end of
repeat, join.
Rnd 7: Sl st to center of next loop, ch 1, sc in same loop, [ch 10, sc in next loop] 5 times, ch 9, skip next loop, sc in next loop, [ch
13, sc in next loop] 6 times, ** ch 11, skip next loop, sc in next loop, [ch 13, sc in next loop] 7 times, rep from ** once more, ch 11,
skip next loop, sc in next loop, [ch 13, sc in next loop] 6 times, ch 9, skip next loop, sc in next loop, rep from * once more, omitting
the sc at end of repeat, join, fasten off.

Fill-In Motif:
Rnd 1: Starting at center, ch 10, join to form ring, ch 1, sc in ring, [ch 5, sc in ring] 11 times, ch 2, dc in first sc.
Rnd 2: [Ch 5, sc in next loop] 11 times, ch 2, dc in dc.

sc in next loop on fill-in motif, ch 2, sl st in 2nd free loop on next round motif, ch 2, sc in next loop on fill-in motif, ch 2, sc in next
loop on same round motif, ch 5, sc in next loop on fill-in motif, continue as before, joining loops of fill-in motif to corresponding
ch-5 turning chain loops on next 2 adjacent pineapples, end with ch 5, sl st in dc, fasten off.
Work remaining 3 fill-in motifs the same.
Starch lightly and block to measurement.
