Thanks for all the praise guys!  I am thinking very seriously about writing up these patterns.  I don't release untested patterns so I'd have to do a bit more crochet before writing.  I'll try to make it happen.

*this rocks!*

I love these!  I would love love love to make one.  (And Cascade 220 is one of my favorite yarns!)

Any chance you'd be willing to share the pattern???  Please?  Pretty please?   Grin Grin Grin

I guess I will be writing these up as everyone seems to want to crochet a pie!  LOL

I have been infused with some serious crochet mojo combined with a touch of holiday spirit for the past few weeks. Now, you all know what that means...Oh yes, that definitely portends a bit of twist in my yarn!

Introducing Holiday Pie-rets!

These crocheted versions of round flaky goodness are just in time for Turkey Day! And yes, you can be sure I will be wearing pie to my family's Thanksgiving feast. So, let's take a look at my crusty choices shall we?

There is the always popular seasonal delight, Pumpkin Pie-ret...

Topped with a dollop of cream...

OR how about a touch of dark and rich Pecan Pie-ret...

And my personal fave, the Cranberry Orange Pie-ret with lattice crust!

It's a tough choice to be sure.

Onto the crochet stats...

The Pecan and Cranberry Pie-rets were crocheted with an F hook and some of my Cascade 220 stash. An F hook combined with this light worsted yarn creates a very tight fabric. This is exactly the effect I was attempting to achieve as I was aiming for structure, not drape. My challenge during the design process for both of these Pie-rets was creating a perfectly shaped circle while using a popcorn stitch pattern. Needless to say, frogging ensued before I came up the correct increase to stitch ratio. I am happy with the results.

The Pumpkin Pie-ret was also crocheted with an F hook. However, I chose to use Lamb's Pride worsted for this one. Don't think I would choose this yarn again for this type of project. The FO ended up being too heavy for my taste. I will use Cascade 220 going forward should I ever decide to crochet another dessert-themed hat!

Thanks for looking!

Also, I LOLed, so that's a plus.

The project is great, and your yarn is lovely.  SUCH A GOOD JOB.

Thank you so much!  I had fun with this from start to finish.  Well, I hated sewing the skellies on, but everything else was fun!!
