Halloween Gathering – Pumpkin Crochet Pattern

I am getting a late start on writing these patterns.  I will try to post one or two patterns each day so that you have the entire set by Halloween.  If anything you will be early for next year.  Think about crocheting these designs in sport weight or worsted weight yarn.  Also – instead of fiber fill stuffing you could use scraps of yarn or cut up nylons for a more eco freindly craft project.

Common Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns, ghost tours, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, committing pranks, telling ghost stories, watching horror films and decorating.

Decorate your home with these bewitching accents crafted from size 10 crochet cotton thread. They will make a delightful display during the Halloween season. You will have a haunting good time crocheting up these eerie designs.
