“Can I open it yet?” The child bounced eagerly in her seat more from excitement rather than the bumps and curves of the road.

“Not yet,” Mother responded.

“How about now?” Mom laughed.

“Not yet. I promise I’ll tell you when we get there.”

The child folded her hands around the purple bag lovingly made by her grandmother and tried to be patient.

Really, she did try. “Can I just peak inside? Just a quick tiny peak.”

Mother cast her a glance through the rearview mirror. “If you’re going to be like that, I won’t let you hold it.”

The child backpedaled. “Never mind. I’ll be good.”

Mother smiled. “Good because we are here.”

The child sucked in a breath of air.

Gingerly, she pulled the small tie strings. The crochet candy bag folded open easily. Within was exactly what she’d expected – the little round chocolates her grandmother made for her – and something else.

Tilting the bag, the child could see the light glint off of her grandmother’s favorite broach.

She smiled knowing how much her grandmother treasured that broach and now was entrusting it to her.

Give your gifts the perfect finishing touch by wrapping them in this adorable candy bag that can be reused and repurposed.

Valentine’s Crochet Candy Bag Pattern

This pattern is so cute and perfect for pretty much anyone. You can make a few of these and gift them to your loved ones!

Whatever you fill them with, your family and friends will feel loved because you have put in some extra effort when making a gift for them.

I used Premier Deborah Norville Everyday yarn, but you could use any other yarn.

Just be aware to use a smaller or larger hook (depending on which yarn you pick) and realize that the bag either shrinks or gets bigger than this pattern.

So cute though, right? 🙂


What you will need:

Gauge: not important as it is a small bag
