Happy crocheting & happy fall! 🎃
Skill Level: Easy
This pie is approximately 2 inches tall and 3 inches wide.
Worsted weight yarn (orange, tan, white)
4.0 mm hook
Needle for sewing
Polyester or other stuffing
Stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to count rounds
Hot glue (optional)
MC = Magic circle (see pattern notes)
St = Stitch
Sc = Single crochet stitch
Ss = Slip stitch
Rep = Repeat
2tog = Crochet two together, also known as decrease (invisible decrease preferred)
Puff = Puff stitch (see pattern notes)
FLO = Front loop only
BLO = Back loop only
Ch1 = Chain one
F/o = Finish off
A note about the magic circle:
Also known as a magic loop or magic ring. If you prefer not to use a magic circle, simply create a slip knot, chain two, and begin by placing your first round of stitches into the first chain. Pull tight on your tail to close the gap and continue with the pattern as written. Once you have worked a few more rounds, weave your yarn tail back and forth on the underside to secure your piece and close any remaining gap.
A note about working in a spiral:
The top portion of this pie is worked in a spiral which means that each round continues into the next without a slip stitch and chain.
A note about counting stitches:
Using a stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to mark the first stitch of each round will help you track your progress. Move the marker as you complete each round.
A note about FLO & BLO:
For the front loop only round, you will work all of your stitches into the front loop of each stitch. For the back loop only round, you will work all of your stitches into the back loop of each stitch. For all other rounds, work into both loops of each stitch.
A note about increasing and decreasing:
For an increase, crochet two stitches in the same stitch. For a decrease, crochet two stitches together, preferably using the invisible decrease method.
A note about reading the pattern:
Before beginning a pattern, it helps to read through the abbreviations list. If you need help with a technique, refer to a written or video tutorial, or keep a crochet book handy. Below is a round from the pattern, followed by a detailed description of the instructions.
Rnd 4: 2sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (24)
Beginning round four, add one single crochet into each of the next two stitches. Add two single crochet stitches in the following stitch. Repeat the pattern of one single crochet in each of the next two stitches followed by an increase until you reach the end of round four. There should be 24 stitches in your completed round.
A note about the puff stitch:
To crochet the puff stitch for this pattern, yarn over, insert your hook into the stitch space, yarn over, pull up a loop, *yarn over, insert hook in same stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop* once more (5 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook. Complete each puff stitch with a chain one.
A note about the invisible finish technique:
For the invisible finish technique, complete the last stitch of your pattern. Snip your yarn, leaving a tail long enough for sewing. Pull the loop on your hook, drawing the snipped yarn tail free. Next, thread the yarn tail onto your needle; skip the next stitch and bring your yarn tail through both loops of the following stitch. Bring your yarn tail through the back loop of the last stitch of your final crochet round, pulling until you’ve created a v that is comparable in size to the rest of your stitches. Weave your yarn tail on the backside of your piece to secure.
Now let’s get started!
Pie (beginning at the top, with orange yarn):
Rnd 1: MC with 6sc (6)
Rnd 2: 2sc in each st (12)
Rnd 3: 1sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (18)
Rnd 4: 2sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (24)
Rnd 5: 3sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (30)
Rnd 6: 1sc in each st (30)
Snip your yarn & f/o using the invisible finish technique. You should have 30 workable stitches. (Note: now is a great time to jump ahead in the pattern & make/sew your whipped cream to the top center of your pie. If you prefer to wait until the pie is complete to add your whipped cream, continue with the pattern as follows.)
Rnd 7: BLO attach your tan yarn to the BL of the first st of rnd 6 with a ch1. Sc in the same st then sc in each st around (30)
Rnd 8-10: *ss & ch1 in the first st, 1sc in each st (including the stitch with the ss & ch1)* (30)
Do not ss to finish the round; snip your yarn & pull your yarn tail free. F/o using the invisible finish technique as described in the notes; you should have 30 stitches. (Note: if you prefer, you can crochet continuous rounds (without the ss & ch1) for rounds 7-10 and/or go straight from rnd 10 to rnd 11 without snipping your yarn. Just keep in mind that the transition will create a slight dip in your work.)
Rnd 11: BLO attach your tan yarn to the first st of rnd 10 with a ch1 & sc in the same st; 2sc then 2tog. *3sc then 2tog* to end of round (24) (Note: you will not ss & ch1 at the beginning of the round for the rest of the pattern)
Rnd 12: 2sc then 2tog, rep (18)
Stuff your pie, making sure not to overfill the bottom so it will sit flat.
Rnd 13: 1sc then 2tog, rep (12)
Rnd 14: 2tog x 6 (6)
Snip your yarn & pull your yarn tail free, then weave your tail around the front loops of the six remaining stitches and pull to close. Weave your yarn back and forth or knot to secure, then hide the yarn tail inside the body, pulling up slightly so your pie sits flat.
Completing the pie crust:
FLO attach your tan yarn to the FL of the first st of rnd 6 with a ch1. Ss in the next st, then puff in the following st (see pattern notes). *ss, puff* to end of round, finishing with your final puff in the same space as your ch1.
Snip your yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing. Next, pull your yarn tail free, then bring the tail through the first ss of the round.
Push your puff stitches so they face outward and flatten them against your pie. If you would like to leave your crust as is, weave your yarn tails back and forth to secure and hide them in the pie. If you would like to tack the crust down, thread your long yarn tail, bring it up and around each ss of the crust, then through a piece of the stitch beneath each puff stitch. Weave your yarn tails back and forth to secure and hide them in your pie.
