DIY Thanksgiving crochet coasters

Pumpkin Pie:


  • Yarn

. orange

. brown

. tan

  • Yarn needle
  • scissors
  • stitch markers


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!


“Stitch patterns”: 

This pattern is written in US crochet terminology.

  • Chain
  • SC – Single Crochet
  • HDC – Half Double Crochet
  • DC – Double Crochet
  • DEC – Single Crochet Decrease
  • Slip Stitch


This is a wonderful project for beginners because it is easy and quick to make. The finished size is 4 x 6 inches.

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.

The crochet pumpkin pie pattern also works great as a coaster!
Pumpkin pie crust:

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.

The free pattern for the crochet pumpkin pie coaster is great for Thanksgiving!

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.
