Halloween crochet

We don’t go in for Halloween much in this house, although the boys have started talking about dressing up this year so that might change. We do love Lego though and there seems to be a theme at the moment of monsters, skeletons and zombies so I thought I would crochet some skulls using this fantastic pattern from kirstinskrazyknits.

The great thing about these skulls is that they are so versatile. I made some up in Halloween colours and then laid them out…

The way these skulls tessellated appealed to the mathematician in me! In the end I decided on bunting (quick and easy). I really dislike photographing bunting so have had to settle for these ones.

I also made two more skulls and as I love all things Mexican, even though I’ve never been there, I decorated them using embroidery threads, buttons and beads.

These are my favourite. The boys saw them and said they were ‘for girls’, so I guess we are all happy! Are you doing any crochet for Halloween? I’d love to hear what you are making.
