Forget plain knit pumpkins, the eclectic mix of scary, cute and out-of-the-ordinary patterns inside this book are perfect for creating a modern and quirky Halloween celebration.   If you’ve been searching for festive Halloween patterns that put an imaginative twist on the more traditional, then pick up your own copy of Knitmare on Elm Street: 20 Projects That Go Bump in The Night.

The book begins with basic tutorials, demonstrating how to hold knitting needles, how to cast on and how to perform basic stitches.  This is fabulous because it opens the book up to a wider audience; even if you don’t know how to knit, you can learn the proper technique just be reading the picture tutorials.  And what better way to practice knitting than by making your own Abominable Snowman?  (Yep, there’s a pattern for that inside too—it’s actually really cute).

After the beginner tutorials, things get really interesting.  You’ll find patterns for all sorts of Halloween oddities, such as a Zombie Egg Cozy, a Shrunken Head in a Jar, a Light Up Ghost, knit vampires, knit gravestones and so much more.  Many of the patterns incorporate small LED lights, which brings another dimension of fun and uniqueness to this collection of creatures.  So if the thought of decorating for Halloween fills you with an inexplicable joy, do yourself a favor and check out Knitmare on Elm Street.  The creativity that went into making these patterns is sure  impress you!
