    Very cool!

    But the multicolored yarn makes too much go on at once. I might try it in a solid color. :)

  2. Tina says:

    Really like this, but must agree w/ Squirrely Girly. A solid color would probably work better. Or maybe a lighter combo – yellow & white, more pineapple-y?

  3. Lane† says:

    I like it! Thank you so much for the pattern, Erin!

  4. Robin says:

    I like the multicolor yarn, Erin. It looks beautiful! Thanks for the pattern!

  5. Macy says:

    Nice pattern! I think the yarn color is just a matter of preference :)

  6. Namiko says:

    I like the variegated yarn as well but I had trouble seeing the pineapples because of it. I guess if you wanted to show off the stitches more then you can use a solid color, but the variegated yarn is a cool look overall.

  7. Bethintx1 says:

    I think that it has more to do with it needing to be blocked than the multi-colored yarn.
