Image of Felted Halloween Trick or Treat Bag
Felting makes this little heirloom treat bag thick and strong! The intarsia design is simple and a great introduction to the technique!

Felted Halloween Trick or Treat Bag

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool

GAUGE:

20 sts + 24 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in stockinette stitch before felting. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Finished Bag size depends on how much the piece is felted. Keep in mind that you can always felt more, but once felting is done, it is not reversible.

Pattern uses a very small quantity (about 24 inches [61 cm]) of the sage


BAG

With A, cast on 92 stitches
Rows 1-2, knit
Rows 3-4, change to B, knit
Rows 5-6, Change to A, knit
Row 7 * change to B,
Row 8 purl
Row 9 knit
Row 10 purl
Row 11 k 18, place marker. k 28 (first row of chart), place marker, knit to end of row. Work chart, reading knit rows from right to left and purl rows left to right and knitting or purling to end of row.
Row 48 bind off to marker (46 sts), k to end of row. (This creates a knitted row where the bottom of the bag folds to make the bottom and makes folding easier.)
Row 49 bind off 18 sts, k 28.
Row 50 *purl
Row 51 knit
Repeat from * until there are a total of 68 rows; bind off

FINISHING

Assemble per diagram.

FELTING

Wash by machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate. To felt additionally, dry by machine on a regular setting until almost dry. Remove from dryer and lie flat to shape.

More about felting

When dry, embroider the eyes, nose and mouth on the pumpkin as shown:

Cut ribbon in half and tie a bow in the middle. Sew ribbon and bells, beads or other findings to the front of bag as shown (be sure to sew through the middle of the bow so it cannot come undone!)

Note: If this is for a child under the age of 3, do NOT use any trim that can be detached and swallowed.

Sew the ends of the ribbon to the back to create a handle.

Repeat for second handle.
