I love designing for Halloween, I love the colours, I love the fun, I love getting to be as silly as my imagination will allow. This is the third year running I have been asked by Simply Knitting Magazine to design a collection of projects for the Scary Season. I have had the same model for each shoot and it has been lovely seeing her grow into a young lady.
This year I have four Halloween projects featured in issue 125 of Simply Knitting Magazine.

This comedy cushion will get a giggle or two as you hide from the Fright Night Movie. Knit in the round from the centre out in chunky yarn, this project works up super fast.
With their furry yarn and big green eyes, Simply Knitting said these were possibly the best slippers they had ever seen! I was thrilled to read that *blushes*.
These cute critters are worked by holding a strand of aran yarn together with the furry yarn to give the slippers a nice sturdy feel and ensure you get plenty of monster miles out of them!
Go Batty for these charming knitted bats, with their Velcro fastenings these would look great just about anywhere! I am looking forward to getting them back and putting them on Little Misses bike!
Can’t have your hands getting cold whilst you indulge in your favourite treat. Worked in chunky yarn in the round you can easily make this in an evening. It would make an excellent gift 😉
I hope you have enjoyed these as much as I did designing and making them.
