PIE GRANNY SQUARES

FOOD SERIES - IN THE ROUND - 31

Welcome back to Sweet Nothings Crochet free crochet pattern blog.  This is the first in my series of food squares in the round.

We’re creating some really cute 9” x 9” squares for a charity – Project Chemo Crochet.  These squares are all sent to them, where volunteers join them up to make blankets that they give to people battling cancer.  This set of squares is going to be made up for toddlers battling the Big C.  Come along and see how you can help.  Check out the charity page here on Facebook or their website.

In case you have just joined me, just check under “labels” on the right hand side of this blog and look under “crochet granny squares” or “crochet blankets” for what we’ve been working on.
Then feel free to follow me here on my blog or via Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest (all links at the end of this blog) so that all future feeds and patterns come right to you.  Cheers.

Today we are going to make two yummy pies – a pizza pie and a cherry pie. Thanks for coming along and spreading smiles.

Materials used : Today I’ve used a 4-ply acrylic baby soft yarn with a 4 mm crochet hook.
It does not matter what yarn / hook you use, to make it to any size you want.

Abbreviations used :
sc : single crochet                                                  dc : Double crochet
ch : chain                                                    ch-sp : chain space
sp : space                                                    rep : Repeat
trc : Treble / triple crochet
dtrc : Double triple crochet


Stitches used :
Starting slip knot : This is a neat new way to start your work without a slip knot.

Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

Hdc : Half Double Crochet : yo, insert hk into st ; yo (3 lps on hk), yo, draw through all 3 lps.  One hdc made.

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.

I started my first cute kitty cat pattern, using the crochet granny square by Ashleigh.  I made a whole set of cartoon characters using this same basic crochet granny square pattern.   
Then I thought of making crochet food squares, and once more found this free pattern at http://www.sewrella.com/pizza-pie-crochet-granny-square/
This pattern  worked just right for me - size wise as well.. so yaay and thank you Ashleigh for this lovely freebie.

I then thought about making an apple pie.. red centre and stripes off the top, using this pizza pie pattern as the base, and lo, behold! I found Ashleigh had had the same idea.. a long time before me !  So get her pattern at https://mycrafts.com/diy/crochet-cherry-pie-granny-square-bake-shop-blanket-series-sewrella/

The cherry pie is a lot smaller, for my requirement, but using the same idea, I just worked more rounds with the cherry filling and then worked the pie crust.  Finally for the criss cross, I worked as many chains as I needed to go right across my pie and voila, what a tasty pie this is too. 
Once again, thank you Ashleigh for this lovely free pattern.
