Pumpkin Pie Hot Pad

A Viking 011

What do you think?

Perhaps you’ll  remember that I’m not a big fan of pumpkin pie–pumpkin bread, pumpkin cake, pumpkin soup, yes–just not pie.

However… I’m about to make an exception here. Isn’t this the cutest little Thanksgiving hot pad on earth? It goes together pretty fast and is as sweet to hang up somewhere pretty as it is to use when lifting REAL pumpkin pies out of the oven. Either way–you’ll enjoy the comments from friends and neighbors. In fact, if you’re really ambitious, it makes a very nice Hostess gift if you are invited out for the holidays. Tie some raffia at the top and there you have it.

If you give this cute thing a try–please come back and show us how it turned out. It was really fun and starts the season off with just the right dash of spice…

pumpkin pie spice–of course!

~NOTE: The original pattern link no longer works, but I found the pattern below nearly the same, with just a slight variation in the “crust.” I hope you like it.

Pumpkin Pie Hot Pad
You will need a ‘pie’ colored worsted weight yarn such as gold, burnt orange, brown, or yellow; and a ‘crust’ colored yarn such as a winter white, or taupe

In Pie Color, Ch 4 and connect to form circle.
Round 1: ch 3 (serves as first dc here and throughout) 13 dc into ring, connect.
Round 2: Ch3, 2dc into each st and connect.
Round 3: ch3, dc into same st, *1 dc into next st, 2 dc into next st. *Repeat around circle connect and end off.
Round 4: Ch 3, Dc into same st. * 1 Dc into next 2 sts, 2 Dc into next st. Repeat from * around circle. Connect to beg ch, end off and weave threads.

Make 2 of these circles.  I like to make each circle a different color so I have two different Pies, depending on which side is up.
Match two circles together with the Right sides out.

PIE CRUST TRIM:
Attach Crust Color to any Dc, making certain to go through both circles.
Round 1: Ch 1. *Making certain to go through both circles, Sc into each st around circle.  Connect to beg ch.
Round 2: Ch 3. * 5 Dc into same st. Sl st into next st.  Ch 3, 5 Dc into next st. Repeat from * around circle connecting to base of beg ch.  End off and weave threads.

  2. Uhh… I think something is wrong with me. I didn’t know it was supposed to be a Pumpkin Pie. 😐 I guess I don’t like Pumpkin Pie enough either… I didn’t see it until you said that’s what it was! I’m a noob! 😛 I just thought it was a cute Fall-colored hot pad. I’m hanging my head in shame… but praising your awesomeness!!! 🙂 I love it so much more now!!!

    You–my love, have been using this for 2 years and you didn’t even know you were holding PIE? That is tooo funny. I should have screamed, “Careful! There’s a pie in there!” when I gave it to you. hahaha

  3. That’s really fun! I actually made a pumpkin pie from scratch, from a real pumpkin this weekend. I am not a huge pumpkin pie fan either. I can only eat it if it has A LOT of whipped cream on it or vanilla ice cream. But the homemade one was fun to make and really cheap because I got the pumpkin at a pumpkin patch for like $0.50. It was great, and I had the rest of the stuff on hand.

    Ok, I posted a pattern that is very, very similar. The “crust” is a little different but still cute. I hope it works for you. Thanks for letting me know.
