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!
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Pumpkin, Taupe, Fern, and Black if you want to create the jack-o-lantern face. Shop all colors at Yarnspirations.com.
Note: Split one skein of pumpkin into two skeins or get two skeins of pumpkin so you can easily crochet two strands at once.

– Tapestry needle

with green yarn
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.
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!
Fill with candy or non-candy treats and it’s ready to go! Happy Halloween!
