These Crochet Halloween Tote Bags are the perfect accessory for trick-or-treating, costume parties, or just adding some festive flair to your outfit. And the best part? We’re providing you with a free crochet pattern so you can create these bags yourself! Here’s what you need to know:

Materials Needed:

  1. Yarn: Choose black, orange, green, or any other Halloween-themed colors you prefer. Worsted weight yarn works well.
  2. Crochet Hook: Select a hook size that complements your chosen yarn, usually between 4mm and 5mm.
  3. Scissors: Essential for cutting yarn and finishing your project.
  4. Tapestry Needle: Used for weaving in loose ends and sewing on any embellishments.
  5. Optional: You can add buttons, ribbons, or other decorations to make your tote unique.

Pattern Instructions:


  1. Start with a magic circle or chain a suitable number of stitches to create the size of the base you desire. The magic circle is a great option for a seamless look.
  2. Crochet single crochets (sc) or half-double crochets (hdc) in a continuous round until you achieve the desired width of the base. Make sure it’s wide enough to hold your Halloween goodies.


  1. Once the base is the right size, start crocheting upwards to create the sides. You can use a stitch like single crochet (sc) or half-double crochet (hdc) for a sturdy bag.
  2. Continue crocheting in rounds until the bag reaches your preferred height. Remember to change colors to match your Halloween theme as desired.
  3. You can add stripes, spiderweb designs, or any other spooky patterns to make your tote unique.


  1. On either side of the bag, leave space for handles. Depending on your preference, you can create short handles for hand-carrying or longer handles to sling over your shoulder.
  2. To make handles, chain a suitable length (around 25-30 chains is typical) and attach them to the opposite side of the bag with slip stitches or single crochets. Make sure they are securely fastened.


  1. Cut the yarn, leaving a tail. Weave in any loose ends using a tapestry needle.
  2. If you want to add buttons, ribbons, or other embellishments, sew them securely onto your bag.
  3. Give your bag a good stretch to shape it as needed.

Optional: For an added touch, consider adding a fun Halloween-themed appliqué like a pumpkin, ghost, or spider.

Now you have a fantastic, handmade Crochet Halloween Tote Bag ready to carry your spooky treats or complete your Halloween costume. Enjoy crafting and Happy Halloween!
