Using yellow yarn,

Round 1: Ch 8.

1 sc in 2nd ch from hook.

1 hdc in next ch.

1 dc in each of the following 5 ch sts, bringing you to the end of your ch.

Make 5 more dc in that end ch st (total 6 dc in last ch st).

1 dc in each of the next 4 sts.

1 hdc in next st, 1 sc in next st, join at the top with a sl st.

Round 2:  ch 1, sc in same st.

Cut yarn and weave in tails.

Still with green yarn, Ch 20.

join your chain with a sl st into the leaf loops at the back of your pineapple.
