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.
Yep, pumpkin two years in a row. So, this year, I decided no more pumpkin. I wanted something a little different.
Yet, I also needed something quick and I wanted it to beginner friendly. After mulling over all things Halloween I came up with this easy candy corn trick-or-treat bag. Perfect!

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!

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.
With color A: Use the Magic Ring or Chaining Method to work 10 dc stitches.
Round 1: Ch 3, 2 dc in the first st, * 1 dc in the next st, 2dc in the next st* Repeat from * to * around, slp-st to top of ch3. (15dc)
Round 2: Ch 3, 1 dc in the first st, *2 dc in the next st, 1dc in the next st* Repeat from * to * around, slp-st to top of ch3. (22dc)
Round 3: Ch 3, 2 dc in the first st, *1 dc in the next 6 sts, 2 dc in the next st* Repeat from * to * around, slp-st to top of ch3. (26dc)
Rounds 4-5: Ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. (26dc)
Round 6: Change to Color B with a slp-st, Ch 3, 2 dc in the first st, *1 dc in the next 4 sts, 2 dc in the next st* Repeat from * to * around up to the last 2 sts, 1 dc in each of the last 2 sts, slp-st to top of ch3. (31dc)
Round 7: Ch 3, *1 dc in the next 3 sts, 2 dc in the next st* Repeat from * to * around, slp-st to top of ch3. (38dc)
Rounds 8-9: Ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. (38dc)
Round 10: Ch 3, *1 dc in the next 4 sts, 2 dc in the next st* Repeat from * to * around to last 3 sts, 1 dc in each of the last 3 sts, slp-st to top of ch3. (45dc
Rounds 11-14: Ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. (45dc)
Round 15: Ch 3, *1 dc in the next 6 sts, 2 dc in the next st* Repeat from * to * around up to the last 3 sts, 1 dc in each of the last 3 sts, slp-st to top of ch3. (51dc)
Rounds 16-18: Ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. (51dc)
Round 19: Change to Color C using a slp-st, Ch 3, *1 dc in the next 3 sts, 2 dc in the next st* Repeat from * to * around, slp-st to top of ch3. (63dc)
Round 20: Ch 3, 1 dc in each st around. (63dc)

With color C (or whatever color you prefer): Ch 70, leaving a long 6-12” tail on each end of the chain.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch to end (69sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in st across (69sc)
Bind Off and use long tails to sew the strap to the bag.
There now, that was super easy, right?
If you have a little ghoul or goblin hitting the streets in search of goodies this All Hallows Eve this is the perfect trick-or-treat bag for them to bring along!
Colorful, bright, lightweight, and it holds lots of yummy treats!
No little ghosts or mini-superheroes to make this for? That’s okay!
Whip one up, toss in some colorful candy or goodie bags, and hang it on your door for a festive decoration!
Have a fun and safe Halloween. 🙂
Who will you make your candy corn treat bag for?
Until next time… Happy Crocheting!
