Knits for Halloween and fall

If you are a knitter and you love Halloween, why not make your own costume or something a little witchy related to wear in the fall?

While you can always buy at stores everything you need, making a unique item on your own in Halloween colors is definitely more fun.

You can also bring your personal fashion sense in, to make something original and it can be as spooky as you like.

  1. PLEASE help me find the knitting pattern for that pullover sweater in the picture with the white/black cat lying on it. You also say that it’s a sweater for dressing up like Freddy Kruger. Where can I find the pattern for it??

    1. Hello Cindy,
      The photo of the cat and the sweater is a stock photo.
      Maybe check Pinterest or Ravelry for Aran sweaters?
      The Freddy Kruger sweater is on the list – it’s the Relaxed Pullover Pattern by Vogue Knitting.
      They had an image a while back with stripes but I see in the pattern the sweater has no stripes.
      Maybe you can knit this one instead and just change the colors?
      I hope that helps!
