I have been a bit unsure whether I would complete this trick or treat bag in time to post the project and pattern. I finally made myself sit down and finish. It’s not that it was difficult to make, I’m just not good with deadlines. A true Procrastinator.This is the first bag that I have made in the pouch style. All in all I am satisfied with the end result. It is not perfectly round, but real pumpkins aren’t either. So, here it is in all of it’s Pumpkin glory . . .Wonky and Wonderful Pumpkin Trick Or Treat Bag!
I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in the color ‘Pumpkin’ for the pouch.
For the border and handles I used Bernat Satin Yarn in the color ‘Foliage’ (this was left over from my Watermelon Drink Carrier Pattern).I worked double crochet (dc) using a 5.5 (I) Hook. I worked in spirals (no joining or chaining at the end of the rounds).This pattern also involves decreases. If you are unfamiliar with an invisible decrease, I learned from the Planet June video Here. Or for a double crochet invisible decrease photo tutorial: click here.
This pattern has been removed. Sorry for the inconvenience folks!
I had mixed feedback on this pattern. Some people ended up with a pumpkin while others found themselves with a carrot.
While I still do enjoy crocheting for fun, WonkyWonderful is focused on food and recipes.
