Free Pattern Friday! Squeeze n' Sniff Pumpkin Pie


Squeeze n' Sniff Pumpkin Pie

November is here! And finally we are getting some cooler weather down here in Texas! It's not a snowstorm or anything but when we're below 70 it's fall!
I love Thanksgiving: the food, the singing (yes, my mother has us all sing Thanksgiving songs together!), the naps, and oh yeah, football, if you're into that sort of thing. It's also a good day for planning some Black Friday shopping (and oh yeah, I AM into THAT sort of thing)! 



This year make dessert weeks in advance (and you don't have to clear out any room in your freezer).

I made a pumpkin pie! It is absolutely void of calories, fat, and carbohydrates. The whipped cream is optional (but how could you eat pumpkin pie without whipped cream?!).





This pumpkin pie has a secret. Tucked inside is an easy to make sachet filled with pumpkin pie spice so that your Squeeze n' Sniff Punkin Pie smells like the real deal!


You will need...
Yarn (all worsted weight):
  Gray
  Burnt orange
  Tan
  White

Hook:
  Size E/3.5 mm (or your favorite!)

Notions:
  Black safety eyes (10mm)
  Polyester stuffing  
  Yarn needle
  Plastic canvas circle measuring 2 3/4" (or cardboard)  Embroidery needle
  Black embroidery floss
  Scrap of fabric
  Thread
  Pumpkin pie spice

Key: 
BLO: crochet into back loops only
ch: chain 
hdc: half double crochet
inc: increase within the round the number of times indicated
rep: repeat
sc: single crochet 
sl st: slip stitch
st: stitch 

Pan:
Rnd 1: With gray yarn, make an adjustable ring, ch 1, and sc 6 into ring. Pull closed. (6)
Rnd 2: 2 Sc into each st (12)
Rnd 3: (2 Sc into next st, sc into next st)* rep to end of rnd (18)
Rnd 4: (2 Sc into next st, sc into next 2 st)* rep to end of rnd (24)
Rnd 5: (2 Sc into next st, sc into next 3 st)* rep to end of rnd (30)
Rnd 6: Working into BLO of each st, (2 Sc into next st, sc into next 9 st)* rep to end of rnd (33)
Rnd 7: Working into both loops of each st, sc into each st, inc 1 (34)
Rnd 8: Sc into each st, inc 1 (35)
Rnd 9: Sc into each st, inc 1 (36)
Fasten off. Leave tail very long for assembly later.

Top of Pie:
Rnd 1: With orange yarn, make an adjustable ring, ch 1, and sc 6 into ring. Pull closed. (6)
Rnd 2: 2 Sc into each st (12)
Rnd 3: (2 Sc into next st, sc into next st)* rep to end of rnd (18)
Rnd 4: (2 Sc into next st, sc into next 2 st)* rep to end of rnd (24)
Rnd 5: (2 Sc into next st, sc into next 3 st)* rep to end of rnd (30)
Rnd 6: (2 Sc into next st, sc into next 4 st)* rep to end of rnd (36)
Change color to tan at the last stitch of Rnd 6.
Rnd 7: Working into FLO (front loops only) of each st, sc into each st around (36)
Rnd 8: Working into both loops of each st,  (6 hdc into next st, sl st into next 2 sts)* repeat to end of round.
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Whipped Cream:
Row 1: With white yarn, ch 7, leaving a long (10") beginning tail. Working into BLO, work 2 sc into the 2nd ch from the hook, sc into the next 3 ch, sc2tog (6)
Continue in BLO.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sc2tog, sc into next 3 st, 2 sc into last st (6)
Row 3: Ch 1, turn. 2 Sc into first st, sc into next 3 st, sc2tog (6)
Row 4-9: Alternate Rows 2 and 3.
Row 10: Ch 1, turn. Line up Row 10 and Row 1. It will be on a diagonal. Sl st the rows together. You will form a tube. 
Fasten off and leave a long (18") tail. Thread the tail onto a yarn needle and weave the tail through the row ends at the top of the tube you've just created. Pull the tail tightly to close up the top of the tube. Insert your hook into a nearby stitch and pull up a loop of the tail. Ch 3, then sc into 2nd ch from hook and next ch. Sl st back into where you started. This has created the "peak" of the whipped cream. Fasten off and weave in the ends. Use the beginning yarn tail to sew the whipped cream to the top of the pie in the center. Stuff sparingly as you go.


Sachet:
Create a tiny sachet to make your pie smell sweet! Fold the rectangular scrap of fabric in half and seam two edges either by hand or machine sewing. Fill the sachet with pumpkin pie spice (I used almost a teaspoon) and stitch closed. 





Assembly:
Insert the safety eyes into the top of the pie as shown. Embroider mouth using two loose straight stitches in a "v" shape.
Insert the plastic canvas (or cardboard) circle into the bottom of the pie. 
Place the Top of the Pie onto the Pan and stitch into place using the Pan's gray yarn tail, stitching into the unused back loops of Rnd 7 of the Top of the Pie. Before you close it up, stuff with polyester fiberfil and insert the sachet. Continue stitching and fasten off, hiding yarn tail inside pie.

  34. At the end of the pie top, you HDC6 in one sc, sl st next 2. The pattern ends up with 12 pie crust "half circles," if you will, (12 x 3= 36) but in your photos, I count 18. I can only assume that the one in the photos was made by sl st in the next 1, not 2. (18 x 2 = 36) I like the look with 18 better, so I'm unraveling to do that row again to match your photos.
