Knit Your Halloween Costume!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying this early October day. It’s currently 64 degrees and cloudy, which is lovely. It’s been SO HOT here lately (and will warm up to the 80s today), that I just love that it’s nice and cool. I’m about to take a walk and I’m going to need my ear warmers. 🙂

Since it’s October, that means Halloween is around the corner! In our house, we like to make our own costumes. Either we sew them (mostly my husband) or knit them (me) or piece them together from things we buy or make or have around the house. This is a tradition that goes way back to my childhood. My mom put together this fine costume for me ON Halloween. I never got more compliments as a kid trick-or-treating.

You may also note the homemade Steve Austin costume, and the handsewn clown costume - all made by my mom.

So, I have a few ideas for Halloween that you can knit! 🙂

Add a leotard and pair of wings to the Fairy Tutu for a cute little woodland sprite.

You can put a few gashes on your face and wear the Tourniquet Scarf to make it look like you're bleeding at the neck.

Finally, here are some ideas taken from two fandoms you might be a part of, both found in Knits for Nerds by Joan of Dark.

Whatever you decide, I hope everyone has as much fun planning for Halloween as we do at my house! And if you decide to make any of these projects, please feel free to post them in the comments!!

Happy Knitting!
