Trick or Treat Spider Bowl

By: Nancy Anderson from RedHeart

Growing up, I always thought the best part of Halloween was coming home and dumping out all of my candy to admire on the living room rug. After my brothers and I were done trading and eating our fill, my mom made us put all of the candy together in one big Halloween bowl to share. The Trick or Treat Spider Bowl is the perfect knitted bowl pattern for holding all of your spooky treats!
