64 Halloween Crafts for Spooky Knitting Fun!

By: Caitlin Eaton, Editor for AllFreeKnitting

Petite Knit Pumpkin Growing up, Halloween was my favorite holiday — not because I liked touring haunted houses or dressing up, but because of all the free candy.  Every night my mom would allow me to have a few small pieces from my pumpkin-themed, trick-or-treat bucket for dessert.  When I wasn't digging in deep, in search of that prized bag of peanut M&Ms, I would guard that bucket very closely — sticky fingers clenched tightly around that grinning pumpkin's face.  While I may not have outgrown my sweet tooth, I have developed a more profound appreciation for the holiday.  Aside from the hoard of free candy, Halloween also presents great opportunities for decorating.  If this is the year you're finally planning on throwing that spooktacular party for all your friends, allow this ultimate collection of Halloween Crafts for Spooky Knitting Fun frighten up your décor.
