Halloween is around the corner and I wanted to crochet something fun . So here is my “Boo Witch Basket” for your kiddos! My little one wanted a regular pumpkin one as she thought a witch would be too spooky but needless to say she fell in love with it once it was completed and can’t wait to show it off to her friends. I really enjoyed putting together this weird project too. I am especially proud of her grin. The pattern turned out to be longer than I thought with so many facial features but was well worth the effort. The smile on my little girl’s face said it all!
I used two strands of worsted weight/ Aran ( size 4 medium) yarn for the sides of the basket and I made it wide to hold more candy for trick or treating rather than keeping it compact like my Easter bunny basket. There is a cardboard hidden in the hat to make it stand up. You can run a satin ribbon through the handle and sew it down together to prevent the handle from stretching. You can even convert this pattern into a jack-o-lantern by following the pattern to make the basket in orange and sticking on some black felt for the features. As simple as that! I hope you all will enjoy making this!
