Crochet Pumpkin Pie Pattern

I LOVE decorating for fall and when it gets to November I enjoy adding Thanksgiving-themed pieces to my autumn decor – This cute little Crochet Pumpkin Pie is going front and center for sure!

I think when you add eyes to any project, it makes you smile; plus, the cutsie eyes on this pumpkin pie give it an amigurimi look which is the popular crochet trend of making little stuffed creatures.

I used simple assembly techniques (yarn tails and yarn needle) to put this pumpkin pie slice together along with a small piece of a common craft supply to help it keep it’s shape (you’ll see it in the supply list and photos below).

Crochet Pumpkin Pie – looks yummy enough to eat . . . almost!

The Crochet Pumpkin Pie pattern uses mostly single crochet stitches and a few double crochet stitches.

If you have visited my blog before, you’ll have noticed that I have really loved this particular velvet yarn by Yarn Bee from Hobby Lobby. The yarn color is called, “Pumpkin” – perfect name, don’t you think? (These FREE patterns use it too: Velvet Pumpkins, Velvet Headband and Velvet Coffee Cup Cozy)

I assure you this slice of crochet pumpkin pie won’t add to your waistline but it will add to the smiles you’ll get around your Thanksgiving table – so let’s get started!

I hope you enjoyed making this Crochet Pumpkin Pie Pattern – don’t you just love working with the super soft velvet yarn in this gorgeous “pumpkin” color? Every time I look at this little amigurimi-style project I smile. I was thinking that these could make cute place cards for your Thanksgiving feast – just add a small card with a name to sit between the whipped cream and crust.
