Cute pumpkin

Crochet yourself a cute pumpkin for autumn displays or Halloween. We love this one, which was created by Anna Nemoy, though the pattern came from PlanetJune (aka June Gilbank).

It features real-to-life ribbing on the pumpkin’s skin, and a stalk.

Thanks June and Anna. We love your pumpkins!

Pumpkin headband

Oh, we love this!

Tanya Bernard has provided a free pattern for this adorable headband over at Ravelry.

“This thick and quick pumpkin headband is easy to work up. Suggested bulky yarn, but 3 strands of worsted can be used in it’s place,” she says. “The pumpkin works up to be the size of a real mini-pumpkin” 

So clever.

Crochet witch’s hat

This crochet hat, complete with braided hair, is just the ticket for a fun Halloween night out.

Designed by Michele Wilcox, you can download the free pdf pattern over at Red Heart. You can choose the colour of your hair, or even the band on the hat, according to your preferences – or your child’s favourite colours.

It’s rather bewitching, don’t you think?

Crochet mask

This lovely lacy mask was created by Andrea over at Craft Disasters and Other Atrocities. But it’s far from an atrocity we reckon. In fact, it’s rather sweet, though we can just imagine wearing it for a spooky Halloween party.

Make several in different colours for your whole family, then head out to bedazzle.

Lovely.

Spider web gloves

If you can bear spider webs, you’ll probably love these gloves, and they can be whipped up in next to no time.

Irina Novikova designed them and has included the free pattern over on Ravelry.

Gauge is not very important,” says Irina. “Just change the number of stitches in the bracelet to fit your wrist, and adjust the number of rounds in the web.”

Halloween pumpkin trick or treat bag

You need something to carry all those treats in, right? Why not crochet yourself – or your youngster – a cute pumpkin carryall.

Kara of Petals to Picots has provided a free pattern for those crafty folk who want to give it a go.

We’d love to see your end result if you do.

Skull shawl

OK, so we don’t have a pattern for this one. This image is floating around on the Internet but nobody can attribute it to anyone.

It’s crocheted, but that’s all we know. Does anyone know who it belongs to?

In the meantime, be inspired by its clever ghoulishness.
