The Great Pumpkin is Comming!

Hello my stitchers! The leaves are turning and the sweaters are coming out, the best time of the year. It also means that Halloween is coming!

When I was a kid their were 3 things that made Halloween great; Free Candy, the fact that the house on 4th Street gave out cotton candy, and the Charlie Brown Halloween Special.

One year my dad didn’t have to work so he took me trick-or-treating. This was a big deal and I was super excited about it, but lost time and didn’t have a costume come beggars night. I’m not sure how it happened, but I ended up wearing a bunch of my dad’s clothes and my mom drew a beard on my face with an eyeliner pencil. I was so excited to be my dad and was beaming when I went up to the first few doors. Then, as my dad says, I came up to my dad and asked “Dad, what’s a hobo?”

By the time I got to high school Tim Burton was making films and my art teacher let us watch The Nightmare Before Christmas, and a new cross-holiday tradition was born. So today I have a handful of knitting pillow charts from my two Halloween traditions, past and not-as-past.

Be safe this Halloween and remember to check your candy for hidden razor blades and chain saws!

Enjoy!

could these charts work for crocheting as well? Never used a chart before and I’m rubbish at knitting

Yes, you can also use them for crochet. I would recommend making a few test swatches with different stitches to find a good fit. It might also help by working the chart from side to side, instead of bottom to top. Thank you for stopping by! Let me know if you have any other questions & let me know how it turns out :)
