Let's begin by saying, Ummmm, CUTE!
I know it's looked down upon to toot your own horn but Common!? They are cute.
Can you believe I made 30 of these in a week?
That's how this pattern came about. I'm a pretty creative person, so when I signed up to help organize the Halloween party for my daughter's preschool party I was excited to see how I could pitch in.
We all had stations we had to manage and I thought what a great idea to have cute little bags that the kids could keep all their Halloween treasures in. So I came up with these. Honestly, 30 was a lot, but I had a lot of fun making them and even more fun watching their faces when they got them. There is something so wholesome and humbling about a child when they recieve something handmade. I was glad to have given them that.
Hook(s): 5mm H-8. I used my Furls Odyssey
Two cute buttons for attaching the handle to the pumpkin.
If you need to substitute with an other yarn and are not sure what to look for here are some tips...
What you will look for between labels
Is the weight the same?
Are the fibers similar, such as Acrylic, wool, alpaca, nylon, etc.?
Is the gauge similar or close enough to make it work?
Are the recommended hook sizes the same?
Another piece of information you can look for is the number of wpi (wraps per inch). This information is not always available so me be more difficult to compare.

Fasten off, leave a tail long enough to whip stitch the back loop of each sc just worked on the bottom edge, pull taught to close the bottom, fasten off and weave in tails, turn inside out.
