Crochet Halloween Baskets and bags and pumpkins abound right now, however this one is not like the rest. This basket uses a wood or aluminum base and also has stuffed sides to give it a fun, full shape. You could add a strap so you can use it for Trick or Treating as well. When you finish the evening, just tuck the strap in and you have your basket to keep your treats in!

The Halloween Basket is part of the CAL Central 2019 Halloween CAL.

Halloween Basket Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home - ready to fold

Flip entire piece inside out by pushing the basket base up through the center. Once it is inside out, fold the crochet in half at row 19 with the back loop only stitches. This will place the columns of ch-1 sps on the outside of the piece.

Cut 5 pieces of yarn each 30″ long.

Line up the ch-1 sp columns with the columns of bpdc, there will be 5 sets. Thread 1 piece of 30″ yarn onto yarn needle. Sew the yarn through Rnd 1 beneath one of the bpdc columns and into the ch-1 sp in Rnd 30. Continue to sew the bpdc column to the ch-1 sp column all the way up and then back down. Tie the two ends together and tuck them into the pocket between the work.

Repeat on remaining 4 columns.

There will now be 5 pockets in the pumpkin. Stuff each pocket so they make the 5 sections of the pumpkin. Use the end tail from Rnd 30 to sew the top of Rnd 30 to Rnd 1 in order to seal in the stuffing.

Flip piece right side out.

To finish off the pumpkin, attach yarn to any unworked front loop from Rnd 19. Rsc around, working into the front loops and catching some of the st below the front loop to secure the sts more, sl st to top of first rsc to join.

Fasten off and then weave in all ends.
