With Halloween around the corner, there is still time to make something spooky to wear or to decorate your home with.

Find something to make in this Halloween knitting pattern collection, with quick last minute costume knits (cat ears) to more complicated projects like the wonderful cat shawl.

Whatever you want to dress up as this post can give you a few ideas – from Freddy Kruger (the knitted sweater) to a cat with some black cat ears.
