Crochet A Pumpkin Basket With We Are Knitters

We Are Knitters (WAK) launch a new, free Hallowe’en pattern for customers to download from their website each year.

This year WAK have opted for a Pumpkin Basket pattern to crochet – adorable whether you want to use it as a decoration in the house, or for your grandkids’ sweet collecting basket.

It’s a great idea that crafters can crochet for children in their life, or you could even get the children involved in a (supervised) craft project!

The pattern is completely free to download (although you have to create an account on the WAK site).

All you’ll need is:

  • 2 skeins of wool – orange and olive
  • A 7mm / 2 UK crochet hook
  • Black felt, scissors, black thread, sewing needle, glue and pins

Happy Hallowe’en and happy crafting!
