Crochet Pumpkin Treat Bowl Pattern

This little pumpkin might not hold enough to keep the Trick-Or-Treaters happy next week, but it is the perfect size for a secret candy stash in the house. I was inspired by a pumpkin bowl made of wicker that I’ve had forever and dutifully put on display every year. This one is a lot cuter (and softer!) than the original and looks perfect on my shelf. The chocolate treats inside don’t hurt either. Since pumpkin decorations are acceptable through Thanksgiving that means my secret candy stash can stay filled for a few weeks after Halloween. 
Finished Size:
About 3 in / 7.6 cm tall and 4.5 in / 11.4 cm wide
Materials:
Size H8/5 mm crochet hook
Size G6/4 mm crochet hook
Orange, brown, and green worsted weight yarn

Round 1: 4 sc in the second chain from hook
Sc in each stitch around until the piece is about 1 in / 2.5 cm
Bind off.
Leaf:
Using the smaller crochet hook, follow the crochet leaf pattern I posted here.

Assembly:
Weave in all ends. 
Sew the stem to the center of the lid. Sew the leaf to the side of the stem. Now all you have to do is fill it with treats…or tricks. Your call.

I think this pumpkin would also make a great container for a small, just-beacause-I-know-you-love-fall, gift! I love “just because” gifts and decorations. There is nothing better than making something that brings out a smile and holds yummy candy all at once. 😉

    I was wondering on round 15 in order to get 42 stitches you have to sc in the next 6sc after Sc2tog then on subsequent decreasing row 17 you would sc in next 5sc and in row 18 sc in next 4sc.

    I had the wicker version too. Found this too late for 2012 but will make them for next year. Thanks for sharing the pattern

  31. Jacquelyn says:

    This is awesome! I crocheted it with a size F hook to make a smaller version and cut a jack o lantern face out of black felt and glued it on. Instead of using it to put candy in I put a Smart candle inside. It came out awesome thanks for the pattern.

  32. Joanna says:

    I have a quick question. After the first time you sc in the back loops only, do you do that from then on out? Or just for that row? Thank you.
