Let’s do up the world in pumpkins.
So, you have your full sized pumpkins all ready for Halloween. Although this is good and all, it’s sometimes not enough. Therefore here are some pumpkin-shaped crochet projects to help you get into the spirit. Specifically, these are various incarnations of the pumpkin bowl, a very thematic candy receptacle. Of course, you can keep anything you like in these handy and attractive containers, but candy is just so appropriate, isn’t it? At any rate, you will certainly have tons of ideas of what to use these for, but also how to modify and customize them.
To begin with, our first pumpkin bowl is a lidded candy holder with very thick, rigid sides. Overall, I think that the realism of this pattern does it great credit, and it’s doubly interesting, because of its versatility. After all, you can use just about any yarn size you care to employ to make it.

However, if you want a pumpkin bowl that’s a little simpler and quicker, here is one that will be a great starter. Because it uses only simple stitches and is quite small, it’ll be a great beginner project that will make use of yarn odds and ends. That said, it’s also a beautiful and worthwhile project in its own right and definitely merits a closer look.
