I recall the afghan and had the pattern. If I can find it I'll let you know. No rash promises however.

I'm sorry, the pic and info is very , faded.... Only some of the rows are readable.... Maybe I will try and phone Herrschner's about it.... I'm thinking because it's so old, they won't have it..... The afghan is done in one piece, if that helps.... Thanks for trying everyone.... GBU! :manyheart

If you have a scanner, here is what I do sometimes:

 

I scan the document or pattern as a jpg file. Then I 'edit' the picture to make it darker, or I change 'color' options. Sometimes this will help make it just dark enough to read. And then I write it out so I have it.

:)Thanks Autumn for the tip.... I guess I can try, only the pic is not visable at all anymore.... Well, maybe a teeny, tiny bit!... GBU!:manyheart

If you go to this site, scroll down to nearly the bottom of the page & you will see a Booklet called "So Pretty Afghans" there is a Pineapple one on the cover.

 

:)Thank you.... I've seen the "So Pretty Pineapple Afghan" I'm planning on buying it as soon as I get a 40% off coupon for Joann's.... I will check this site also.... GBU!:manyheart

Hi there - I know this is an old thread, but it seems unsolved. I have Herrschner's #3160, found it in my grandma's pile of patterns (along with a letter she sent to the company expressing her frustrations with it :) ) just started working on it. I was searching to see if I could find any pictures of the completed afghan and came across your post(s). all I have is the 4-page pattern, no pictures!

 

Anyway, if I can help ya out, let me know!

Hi,

Did you receive the Pineapple Afghan pattern?

I"ve been looking for this same pattern.

Any info would be appreciated.

My mom had this pattern. I remember it because she had purchased the kit then had to contact Hershners for more yarn. She ran out close to the end.

Then about a year after she made it, I made it for a friend - used Dazzle yarn. (can you tell me age from that statement?? lol)

If the pattern is still needed, I can see if mom still has it. Just shoot me a PM.

Just a reminder that even though this pattern is out of print, it is still most likely subject to copyright protection. That means that anybody who has an original pattern cannot send copies of it to others without permission from Herrschnerr's.

 

Since several people seem to be interested in this pattern, maybe we can contact Herrschnerr's and see if we can get permission to post the pattern here at Crochetville (with complete credit given, of course).

 

Mary.thomas, if I can get permission from Herrschnerr's to post it here, would you be willing to send me a copy since you have an original?

I've just sent an email to Herrschnerr's asking if we can have permission to "reprint" the pattern here via a post on the forum. I'll let you know what I hear back.

Thank you Amy... It would be nice if Herrschner's would allow this since the pattern is so old...Sure wish someone would have a photo of it... GBU!:manyheart

I do have the pattern and picture and the complete kit. I just bought it all enclosed from a gift shop we visit every year. She was asking $8.00 and my DH offered her $5.50 when I walked into the other room. She accepted his offer. I was more then excited.

 

If Amy gets permission I will send the pattern to anyone who wants it. And do my best at scanning and posting a pic.

 

It is a lovely afghan.

Oh, thank you so much for the offer to send in the pattern if we get permission to post it here. (Although, if there's this much interest, Herrschnerr's may be interested in getting the copy back themselves so they can reprint.) :cheer

 

While I know everyone would love to see the picture from the pattern now, please hold off posting any until (if) we get permission to post the pattern here.

 

Of course, if you're a super-speedy stitcher and finish your own afghan, you're welcome to post pictures of it anytime! :)

No "Super-Speedy Stitcher" here! Hope Herrschnerr's comes though for those who wants it.

 

My kit came with a light cinnamon 2 ply acrylic yarn and it appears that they also offered it in 2 other colors.

 

I will stay tuned,

I also have this pattern but as of yet have not been able to find a picture for it. It is called Hospitality Afghan. I inherited the pattern from my grandmother as well. Hopefully Herrshnerrs will let it be printed here. I tried at one point to crochet this. I'm not sure the pattern is correct as written. I ran into more than one problem with it. Finally ended up :froging it.

You can Google it by name under images and it comes up. My bff and I both made this afghan and if there were errors in the pattern we worked them out, it's been a long time so I don't recall having problems. Hopefully Herrschners will allow it to be posted so everyone who wishes to make it can. :hook

I also have this pattern. I was just going through my patterns and there it was. It does not tell you how much yarn to use or what colors as I have read on here that it was sold in a kit. I also do not have a picture of the afghan. But I have a decent copy. I think I got mine at a garage sale or a thrift store. Patterns are becoming harder to find at thrift stores, too many people are looking for them. :-)
