Ananas is what Maria Sibylla Merian would have called a pineapple. I have found instructions for pineapple bags in several 19th century knitting books and have used them, along with photos of bags made in the same time period, to create a pattern for today’s knitters.

This bag is worked from the top down. The leaves and bottom are worked in the CC right-side out and the middle of the bag is worked in the MC inside out.
