Halloween Crafts - Knitting, Crochet and Needlecraft
With Halloween just around the corner we have turned to our favourite crafts to bring you a mish mash or shall we say monster mash of projects around the Halloween theme. We’ve got cross stitch, crochet and knitting. Some small projects, others that may take a little longer. Enjoy taking a look at the spooky selection below.
Bothy Threads have done it again, with another fabulous cross stitch design from Hannah Dale - 'Pumpkin, Spice and All Things Mice'. It isn't necessarily a Halloween design, perhaps more autumnal / harvest. This will be a lovely piece to display on your wall over the autumn months, in anticipation for rotation to a festive theme to follow.
Hallow Elly is another new kit for 2020. This one is definitely a Halloween cross stitch kit! Elly the elephant is whooshing along on her broomstick high above the trees, with her cat tucked up snuggly in her cauldron.
Ricorumi Halloween book is a fun amigurumi book full of Halloween critters. Quick little makes to work your way through. Find a bat, spooky ghost and green witch in amongst these scary crochet characters. Choose from a selection of Ricorumi yarns including the Rico Lame.
If you are a knitter looking to join in with a Halloween make, then how about a cushion. King Cole has a selection of four Halloween cushion designs to knit in King Cole Tinsel yarn, all with a spooky theme. There’s an eyeball, monster, cat eye or skull. Glitz and Halloween? Why not!
Tiger print sock yarn is not so much a Halloween themed project, but they are definitely good colours for Halloween - orange and black! Make a pair of socks with this Urth Uneek Sock kit and you will have Tiger feet.
If you can’t get a real pumpkin, then how about a knitted one that you can have all year round. This King Cole Tinsel pumpkin pattern comes in 2 different sizes. There’s a large one and a small one to knit.
Emma Varnam has the cutest free pattern for a crocheted pumpkin. It’s available on her website. As Emma suggests it is great for Thanksgiving or Harvest too!
