Halloween Candy Corn Crochet Treat Bag

Halloween Candy Corn Crochet Treat Bag

So, this year I decided I wanted to do something a little different.  Instead of buying a trick-or-treat bag for my toddler son.  I decided to crochet him one.

That’s how this Halloween candy corn crochet treat bag came to be.

You see, since he was born nearly 3 years ago, I decided to make him something different each Halloween.

The first year it was a pumpkin costume.  Unfortunately, I didn’t write down the pattern so I can’t share it with you. 😢

Last year it was pumpkin booties.

Summary:

This crochet candy corn bag is perfect for Halloween trick-or-treating or as an overall autumn decoration.  You can add it to both your Halloween and Thanksgiving decor!  Plus, it’s a cinch to whip up.  Truly!  It’s awesome for crochet beginners because it only requires the most basic of crochet skills.  Make it in non-traditional Halloween colors for a clever and unique look – think red, white, and blue for Fourth of July or red, white, and pink for Valentine’s Day.  This isn’t just a Halloween bag, it’s a fun holiday bag!

Additional Notes:

  • Read all pattern notes, instructions, and other provided details carefully before starting the project to make sure you understand everything.  It could save you hours & a lot of headaches!
  • Make a swatch that measures at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch provided under the Gauge Section. If your swatch matches the gauge, then you are all set to start the project. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your crochet hook – increase your hook size if your stitches are smaller & decrease your hook size if your stitches are larger.
  • All measurements given are unblocked and measured flat pre-wear and pre-seaming as fabric pieces may stretch during/after blocking, wearing, and seaming.Provided measurements are as exact as possible, but are given as approximates. This is because yarn variances, crochet tension, & individual technique might give variations in the result, which changes from person to person.
  • Instead of starting with the Magic ring, you could alternatively start using the chaining method (chain 3 then slp-st to 1st chain to make a ring).  Both the magic ring and the chaining method are detailed in the “Magic ring or Chaining Method” tutorial HERE.
  • Care Instructions:  Hand wash & lay flat to dry.

    I was wondering if I could get some help with this pattern? Where it is joined, it is leaving a pretty good sized gap, is this just part of it or am I messing up? If I can get this figured out I will be making these for my children for halloween!

    Hi Mercedes,

    You should not have a large gap at the join. Can you send a picture of the project, particularly the join area to my email at [email protected] so I can help you figure out where things went amiss?

    Thanks,

    RaeLynn
