Wow, it’s hot out there today! My mind has traveled forward to the smell of pumpkin everything, the many colors of the leaves, hoodie weather, and my favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN!
Does anyone else always find that when they make big plans to start projects before a holiday, they never happen until the week before? Now you’re stuck with 5 Fourth of July utensil holders that just finished up on July 5th? That’s me in a nutshell.
So now, I’m going to share some Halloween patterns in the middle of summer. Hopefully this will help us procrastinators out just a little bit..
1. Repeat Crafter Me: Halloween Crochet Cup Cozy
Every pumpkin spice coffee deserves to be wrapped in one of these awesome cup cozies!
2. Nichole’s Nerdy Knots Ravelry Pattern: Oogie Boogie
The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of those movies that crosses over from Halloween to Christmas. We usually watch it for both holidays.
3. The AntiCraft: Chainsaw and Axe
This pattern comes along with suggested reading and story of it’s own. Please, while you’re there, check out their explained difficulty levels. I really needed that laugh today!
4. kristenskrazyknits: Skull Motif
Though this pattern was made to be a Dia De Los Muertos skull, I think it crosses over to Halloween just fine. I’m thinking of making several of these and attaching them together to make a scarf or even a top-hat ribbon. Wouldn’t that be neat?
5. Heidi Yates: Brain Beanie
This one is very exciting! The men in my life rarely wear anything I’ve created because, “Mom, it’s just colors. I doesn’t have anything else on it.” I think this one would win the crowd, though.
6. Petals to Picots: Cauldron
Though I’d love to make one of these for everyone and fill them with candy as Halloween gifts, I never find the time to do so many. Maybe since I’m “starting early” this year….
7. One Sheepish Girl: Pumpkin Treat Bowl
Here’s another “single use” treat bowl. I like her idea of hiding candy in it for yourself. My kids are too curious for that to work. I have to hide candy in the freezer in an empty vegetable bag. 😉
8. CrochetByMonet: Pumpkin Coaster
If you read my Fidgets for the Fiddlers post, I mentioned how I’ve gone a little crazy in the past with coasters. I believe it’s about to happen again! Now I shall have a pumpkin coaster to go with my Jack Skellington one.
9. My Merry Messy Life: Wreath
Not only does she provide the crochet pattern, she also shows you how to assemble this entire wreath!
10. Yarnspirations/Lily Sugar and Cream: Bats
The link will take you directly to the Lily PDF pattern. The beginning of the URL mentions Yarnspirations, but I’m unsure if it’s one in the same with the page I’ve seen before. These bats look so awesomely spooky!!!!
11. Red Heart Designed by Sharon Mann: Costume Top Hat
I was thinking while doing this that I’ll make a separate post for crochet Halloween costume pieces, but I HAD to include it here as well. This is beautiful! Red Heart even rates it as a beginner pattern! This would probably make a pretty rad candy bowl! (There, being on a non-costume post now justified!)
12. Itsy Bitsy Spider on Craftsy: Candy Corn
Whenever Halloween rolls around I always sing that little song from Moose and Zee, “But I don’t like candy corn.” Though I don’t enjoy the sugary confection myself, there’s no denying that this little kernel shaped delight is a staple of the season.
13. j_4321 on Instructables: Eyeball Keychain
How unique is this? This would probably work all year round as a conversation piece. Imagine handing your keys over to the shop by a dangling eyeball! That would be a reaction I’d love to see!
I hope this spooktacular collection inspires everyone to start Halloween a little early this year. I would personally love to have Halloween all year round. Think of all the possibilities! Have a great day everyone!!
Please, if I have given any improper ownership, let me know. I’m not in this game to steal patterns and/or mislabel them. I adore free patterns and would like to share them, not take them. Thank you to all of the awesome crafters here for providing instructions to your crafts!
