A highly textured, almost three dimensional, mouthwatering pie disguised as an afghan square. A buttery, crunchy, fluted ginger nut biscuit crust encloses a creamy and tangy lime filling. The pie is generously topped with whipped cream and decorated with lime slices. And the whole thing is calorie free.

This afghan square can be made in worsted yarn to produce a 12” square, or DK where it measures 9.75”. It is not terribly difficult, but there are some unusual techniques, so I would rate it as intermediate. I have however added plenty of notes and tips to the pattern to talk you through.

The pattern was designed specially for the Ravelry 2017 Crochet Block-a-Month’ group’s April square. There will be round by round photos, and discussion there. Please join us if you would like.

There is also a little sister 4.5” / 6” version called Tiny Tart which uses the same techniques, and would mix well with the larger square, or provide an easier practice version.

Round 12 stitch count should read “30 ch-2”
Round 19 should refer to the corner “tr”, not “dtr”.
