No calory , crochet cherry pie

Feel like making sme o no calory cherry pie ?  Then get out your crochet hook and try this very easy pattern. This is not serious food but it is fun to make and it looks good.

I am giving the pattern for 12 th scale but you can make it bigger or smaller by using thicker or thinner thread and a matching crochet hook.







What you will need :
0,60 crochet hook
DMC fil dentelles no. 8o or another thread of the same thickness. Colors for Cherry pie : light brown, red and white . 
Needles for sewing up.
Tacky glue.
Tiny bit of stuffing.



Sc = single crochet
Ch= chain
Dc = double crochet
Bobble = 3 dc in one st worked together for cherry pie filling

St= stitch






 The Cherry pie is
made in  3 different parts : crust, filling and the cream swirl.










Pie crust for the cherry pie slice :
Bottom and lid of the pie are worked in one piece.
Row 1 : with light brown chain 2
Row 2 : work 2 sc in first chain, chain 1 and turn.
Row 3 : work 2 sc in each sc, chain 1 and turn.
Row 4 : 1 sc in every sc, chain 1 and turn
Row 5 : work 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 2 sc in the last sc, chain 1 and turn.
Row 6 : 1 sc in every sc, chain 1 and turn.
Row 7 : Work 2 sc into the first sc, 1 sc in each sc until last sc, 2 sc in last sc, chain 1 and turn.
Row 8 : 1 sc in every sc, chain 1 and turn.
Row 9 : Work 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each sc until las sc, 2 sc in last sc, chain 1 and turn.
Row 10 : 1 sc in every sc, chain 1 and turn.
Row 11 : work 1 sc in every sc. using only the back loop ( the loop farthest away from you at the top of the crochet), chain 1 and turn.
Row 12 : work 1 sc in every sc, using both loops again, chain1 and turn
Row 13 : work 1 sc in every sc, using only the back loop as before, chain 1 and turn.
Row 14 : work first 2 sc together, 1 sc in every sc until last 2, work last 2 sc together. Chain 1 and turn.
Row 15 : 1 sc in each sc, chain 1 and turn.
Row 16 : as 14
Row 17: as 15
Row 18: as 14
Row 19 :as 15
Row 20 : work last 3 sc together. Do not finish off.

Finishing row of sc around the pie crust : chain 1 and work 1 sc in every st. around the pie shape. At the points work 3-4 sc in the same st to make a nice shape. Fasten off and cut thread .

To add the scalloped rim to the pie top :
Attach thread to the unused front loops of row 11 and work : * 1 sc in first loop, 2sc in next loop * repeat * to * till end.




Cherry pie filling
. I wanted it to look like berries so I used a bobble st. for this. But you could also omit the bobbles and just work sc if you do not like the berry look.
Row 1 : chain 21 in red.
Row 2 : work 1 sc in second chain from hook. 1 sc in every chain till end, chain 1 and turn.
Row 3 : work 1 sc in every sc ,chain 1 and turn
Row 4 : for the bobbles work : 1 sc in first sc, * work a bobble in next sc = work 1 dc but do not pull the yarn through the final loop, work 2 more dc like that and finish them by pulling the yarn through all 4 loops on the hook at once , 1 sc in next sc * repeat * to * till end. Fasten off and cut thread leaving a tail for sewing.

Cream swirl :


With white chain 15 .
Row 1 : 1 sc in second chain from hook and 1 sc in each chain till end.
Row 2-3 : work 1 sc in every sc using only the back loop. (= the one farthest away from you at the top of the work). This will add a rib to you work . Fasten off and cut thread.




Making up the pie :

You will find that the pie crust will fold at the two rows where you only used the back loops so you will have a bottom, side and top of crust. The filling has to be sewn to the inside of the bottom piece first. So hold right side of crust and filling against each other and whip stitch in place. Do not use the sc row around the crust so it can form a little rim on the finished pie. Then sew the filling to the top of the crust once again not using the sc row around the crust. Leave a little opening for filling the pie with some stuffing and close the opening. Weave in all lose ends.





Now to make the rim of the pie stand up nicely : thread your needle with a light brown thread. Attach to the pie at the side near the scalloped edge. Make small stitches all through the pie following the edge and finish off.






For the cream swirl :
Take your white strip of crochet and twist it around a few times till you get a nice swirl. Sew the swirl together so it keeps its shape and weave in all ends. Glue to top of pie.


There you are, place on a nice plate and admire your home made crochet cake.



If course you can make other types of pie as well. Just change the color for the filling and use different stitches to make it look a bit different.
