Crochet Pumpkin Pouch

pumpkinpouch1

A crochet Pumpkin Pouch is the perfect accessory to hold all those Halloween goodies and candy! A special treat for your kids, class parties, teacher, neighbor, family member, or friend! The top cinches closed to look like a stem and vine! Leave your pumpkin plain or add a fun jack-o-lantern face. Thick and quick to whip up too. I used two strands of Bernat Super Value Yarn in (wait for it) PUMPKIN color!

Chain 75, 2 SC in second chain from hook and in next 20 stitches (this creates the curly part), slip stitch in remaining chains.
Fasten off and weave in, over and under, the DC stitches from Round 20.

Leaf: Make an easy Crochet Leaf << pattern HERE and sew onto other end of your vine ( the part with the curl). Remember that you will want to attach your leaf AFTER you have woven your vine through the DC stitches on the pouch.

Jack-O-Lantern Face:
with black yarn
Triangles (make 3) : chain 4, SC in second chain from hook, HDC in next, DC in last chain. Fasten off leaving a tail to sew onto pouch. Two triangles for the eyes and an upside down triangle for the nose.
Mouth: Chain 16, SC in second chain from hook, HDC in next, DC decrease over next two, chain 3 and slip stitch to the same spot as your decrease, slip stitch in next 4 chains, chain 3, DC decrease (starting in spot where you have your chain 3), DC in next, DC decrease, DC, HDC, SC in last. Even if your mouth isn’t in the perfect smile shape, you can still sew it on correctly!

    Are the leaves and the stems worked with a single or double strand of green yarn? I followed directions for the vine, but it isn’t curling. Do you have a suggestion for me to make it curl, please?
    Thanks for a cute Hallowe’en project!

    How much of the 197g super value skein does it actually take to make one pumpkin? I have 2 x 50g skeins to run two strands at a time, wondering if that will be enough to complete it…?
    Thanks!

    Hello. I am having trouble with row 6. I keep getting 45 stitches after making 30 stitches in row 5. Please help me understand what I am doing wrong. Thanks in advance.
