At first there may be more than one,
Next your view will get things done.
Next, half a banana will help us out,
Then used in a question, but do not pout.
The beginning of the finale is the key,
To help you see what I might be.
Know people use me for different things.
I might make it difficult to sing.
So carefully analyze, reason, finalize,
What I might be, then eat some pies.

The answer is

SCARF.

At first there may be more than one,

The letter S is used for pluralising (as in the OP's previous riddle).

Next your view will get things done.

A view is what you see, and "see" sounds like C.

Next, half a banana will help us out,

Half the letters in the word "banana" are A's.

Then used in a question, but do not pout.

Questions such as "are you here?" contains the word "are", which sounds like R.

The beginning of the finale is the key,

The first letter of the word "finale" is F.

Putting together everything we've got so far gives the word I mentioned at the start.

To help you see what I might be.
Know people use me for different things.

Scarves can be used for warmth or as fashion accessories.

I might make it difficult to sing.

If you're wearing a scarf, it's hard to sing through it.

So carefully analyze, reason, finalize,

This is an acrostic: "So carefully analyze, reason, finalize".

What I might be, then eat some pies.

I'm not sure what pies have to do with it! A red herring?

  • $\begingroup$ Because pies are awesome at all times :). Great job. Some extra thoughts: "are" is often used in a question, but "r" is not found in pout. Also, Scarves are now a fashion accessory for women even in the summer (at least for my wife) but others use for warmth. $\endgroup$ – Aggie Kidd Mar 25 '15 at 18:42

    $\begingroup$ @AggieKidd Thanks! I thought of that idea re "are", but forgot to put it in. I'll edit. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Mar 25 '15 at 18:44
  • $\begingroup$ I don't think I would have ever figured it out. Well done. $\endgroup$ – Mir Mar 25 '15 at 19:14
  • $\begingroup$ Re: pies -- scarf can also be used as a verb as in "to scarf [something] down", like to eat quickly. If you are a fan of pie, you may scarf it. $\endgroup$ – feelinferrety Mar 26 '16 at 0:31
