    Great idea! I have sewn trick or treat bags but never crocheted them!:)

  3. Sara @ My Merry Messy Life October 25, 2012 at 12:18 pm #

    Very nice, Kara! I like the cabled texture down the sides. And I like your new format with the grey boxes. Thanks for sharing at Hookin On Hump Day!

    This is really great. I’m no good at this sort of thing though. We made paper ones instead.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Super cute bag!!

    This would be perfect for a knitting on the go bag! I’d use a smaller crochet hook to make a tighter fabric and make sure the handle fit over my arm nicely. It would just need to be the right size to hold a cake of sock yarn and my 42″ circular needles.

    Great pattern (as usual) Kara! I featured a link to it this morning on Moogly:

    • Kara October 1, 2013 at 12:31 pm #

      Thanks so much, Tamara!

  8. Rachel September 30, 2013 at 8:07 pm #

    I’ve made a few of these or my kids. The bottom droops down, is this normal? I can’t figure out how to make it sit the way you did in the picture. I love the pattern though :)

    • Kara October 1, 2013 at 9:51 am #

      Hi Rachel :) Do you mean when it is filled? Mine pulls down when filled with candy too. I mostly give it to my little one to use because he isn’t too serious about getting it filled to the top ;)

      • Rachel October 1, 2013 at 10:06 am #

        The bottom doesn’t sit flat. I switched to crocheting in the front loop only instead of the back loop only and now the bag sits up right.

        • Kara October 1, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

          Hmmm … I’m not sure … mine sits flat.

        • Dahlia July 21, 2014 at 9:31 pm #

          You may want to try inserting a round cardboard to fit inside. This way the candy will not weigh down the bottom of the pumpkin.

          • Kara July 22, 2014 at 9:12 am #

            Great idea!

  9. Lindsey October 24, 2013 at 9:34 pm #

    I love the pattern!! Thanks for sharing :) I must be a really tight stitcher…..had to use a M hook to get it remotely close to 11 inches wide….and it is still small :(

  10. Elizabeth September 10, 2014 at 2:45 am #

    This is so cute, but I can’t get the bottom of mine to lay flat, either. Six hdc in a magic ring only gives me a semicircle. I end up with a bowl at the bottom instead of a flat bottom. I tried it with two different sized hooks.

  11. Ginnna September 14, 2014 at 8:37 pm #

    Stitch counts for 9, 10, 15 & 16 should be 63. Stitch counts for 11 through 14 should be 70.

    Working on the pattern now, turning out really cute!

    • Cori September 14, 2014 at 10:11 pm #

      Every time there is an increase I also come up 1 stitch short…even counting the chain 2. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong. I’ve crocheted and then let it out several times and I still can’t get the right number so I’ve just been slipping in an extra stitch at the end of the round to make it the right count.

      • Kara September 14, 2014 at 11:44 pm #

        Hi Cori :) Oh, I see what I did wrong!!! I missed a stitch on Round 6 that threw the whole count off! So, so sorry for the confusion. It should be correct now. Let me know if you see any else wonky. Thanks so much for letting me know!!

    • Kara September 14, 2014 at 11:45 pm #

      Hi Ginnna :) Yes, I see now!! I missed a stitch on Round 6 that threw the whole count off! So, so sorry for the confusion. It should be correct now. Let me know if you see any else wonky. Thanks so much for letting me know!!

    Kara, this is such a cute trick or treat pumpkin! Thanks so much for the free pattern! :D

    • Kara September 23, 2014 at 10:02 pm #

      Thanks so much, Marilyn!

  13. Mary H September 26, 2014 at 1:17 am #

    Is this a one skein wonder?

    • Kara September 26, 2014 at 9:49 am #

      Yep :) Just one skein!
