Created By: E Eileen
Materials: I used scraps of black yarn for the eyes, nose, mouth and lashes. The leaves are made of scraps of light green yarn. Vanna's choice rust is used for the bottom pumpkin color and Vanna's choice olive is used for the top. This pattern was very easy and quick to crochet.
Pattern Source: lionbrand: Halloween treat bags#1208350
I made the treat basket from the pattern with Frankenstein and adjusted it to make something less scary for my 18 month old grand daughter. I used scraps of light green for the leaves (crocheted in a triangle beginning with 7 HDC stitches, then 5 stitches, then 3, then 1 stitch and finally I slip stitched around the leaf edges to even the edges. Using darker green yarn I used the needle/yarn to make running stitches in the leaf for the leaf design.) I crocheted circles for the eyes by using the "outer eye pattern" and added one additional row with 2 stitches in each HDC stitch=24 stitches in row 3. The eyelashes and the nose are running stitches using the yarn/needle. I wove in all the loose edges on the inside so there were no loose ends to get baby hands stuck in.
