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

    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:

      Thanks so much, Tamara!

    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 :(
