Hallowe'en Fun

Print Friendly and PDF
Such a lovely time of year. Ghosts, witches, goblins, Britney, Elves, Paris, Devils, Orcs, The Hulk, and many more walk about unfettered on this night. What are you going to dress your little ones in this year?

Why not knit a costume? I went looking and these patterns were available free of charge.

The Darling Devil Set available free from Lion Brand makes for a quick knit of horns and tail for any age.

If you're looking for a quick fix to not finding a cool costume and it's Halloween day itself. Take out your knitting needles and sink them into this pattern. Flying Spaghetti Monster According to the pattern, it only takes 4 hours to make this costume and gauge is not an issue! No swatching involved.

Now for something retro. How about a Hallowig? Knitty offers a cool pattern for a knitted wig, but better start it today or you may not have it done in time.


Another option offered by Knitty is the Jackyll & Hide hat. If you live where it gets cold by the end of October as in snow flying and wind blowing up your breeches, this would be a great mask. It does double duty as a hat and scares the living tar out of kids when you pull it down.

You can also get the book Charmed Knits by Alison Hansel.

The book contains patterns for wizardly items such as: a wizard hat, robes, scarf, Errol the owl and more. If your little ones want to walk around looking like Harry or Hermione, this is the book for you.



Fans of "Nightmare Before Christmas" will adore this cute pattern for Zero the Ghostly Dog from Knitted Toy Box .















For fans of Futurama, the Brain Slug from Mychawd, Knitting SAMurai 's blog will be a sure hit.

For home decorating or gift giving, this knitted pumpkin pattern is adorable! You can make it any size you want, just change needle size.

Have fun on Halloween and remember to walk safely, carry a light and get home not too late after dark.
