Halloween Garland
Created By: Philisha Riddell
Craft: crochet
Materials: No Lion Brand in Queensland, Australia, used a charcoal grey mohair blend for Color A and a basic red for the band. I had some gold thread left over from Christmas crafts and made a buckle. Wouldn't know the Lion Brand equivalent.
Pattern Source: lionbrand:

I'm no Crochet Guru, but I like making things that make my kids smile. I made a Halloween garland out of some patterns I've found on LionBrand.com and a few from my own experience. The witch's hat was from Lion Brand but being in Australia I had to use what I had around here for yarn, so I used a charcoal grey mohair blend for the majority. I also used a basic red wool for the band (Go Bucks!) and a bit of gold thread I had on hand for the buckle. Could have used a lot more to enhance the buckle perhaps. Very fun and very quick, not even an hour, and I could have really tightened the gauge. By making some stitches more loose near the top it gave it a more floppy effect, reminds me of that wizard's hat in Harry Potter that talked. Made a "finger knit" cobweb to hang my decorations on, kids love making them, see photo of ghost. I weave the yarn between my fingers on one hand twice and pull the back loop over the front loop on each finger creating a chain in the palm of my hand, bit difficult to describe, easier to demonstrate. I have also made a little ghost out of cream light weight wool, I just made it like I would if I were making a thumb for a glove/mitten stopping at the length I wanted. I wanted to create a wispy effect by adding a few chains to the right side at the bottom but didn't want to go from "ghost" to "jellyfish". Used black thread and made ^ eyes. Pumpkin and Bat from lionbrand.com to come next. Thanks for having such a great site, An American Downunda - PJ
