Pumpkin Pouch

Free Pattern
by Sherri Screen

My sister remarked to me that she wanted to make a little pumpkin out of some orange yarn she had. I sat down and started making one, and as I worked, she commented that a drawstring bag would be cute. That's how these little guys came about. The pattern is very simple. This is my first attempt at creating a pattern to share with others. Please let me know if there are any problems with it.

Hook size: G
Yarn: Any yarn, I used Peaches 'n' Creme in the 2.5oz ball size. I was able to make two of these out of one ball of yarn.
Gauge: Not important.
Abbreviations:
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
lp = loop
rnd = round
sl st = slip stitch
sk st = skip the next stitch

Note: piece is worked in rounds, no joining.

This pattern should be easily adjusted if you want a smaller or larger bag.
