For this free pattern, we’ll be using medium (4) worsted weight yarn. You can easily substitute with other brands and colors as long as the ounces per gram are similar. I’ve used the following for this project:
Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color Pumpkin
Yarn Bee Yarn ID, Medium 4, 5 oz / 252 yd in the color Oats (tan)
For the pie crust, I think Red Heart Super Saver in the color Buff would be a good substitute. I also think using a darker, burnt orange would be really cute!

Add a SC Border: Continue up the left side (chain 1 in the corner), top, and right side (chain 1 in the corner); when you’ve reached the bottom again, chain 1 and tie off pulling through that chain stitch to secure and weave in the ends.
With cream, join to the top right of the pie slice.
In the same stitch: HDC, DC, DC, HDC
Slip stitch in the next stitch
Repeat this series of stitches all the way across the top; this creates 8 little ridges of crust!
Chain 1 and tie off, pulling through the chain stitch to secure.
Weave in your ends and trim any excess yarn.
If you’re using your pie slices as coasters, you’re done! For garland, using a tapestry needle and jute, string your finished pumpkin pie slices into a garland by running the jute through two points on the back top of the pies.
