POW: Webster Witch Is Your Go-To Halloween Crochet Project
The Webster Witch pattern from Love of Crochet Fall 2017 is a favorite this time of year. Who can resist an adorable crochet spider witch? Decorate your house this season with Brenda K. B. Anderson’s darling Halloween crochet spider—and our pattern of the week!
This pattern is easy to work up with rounds of single crochet, single crochet increases, and single crochet decreases. Worsted-weight yarn comes in a wide range of colors, so you can easily personalize this spider to match your Halloween holiday décor.
Where will Webster Witch live in your house? She’d be a perfect fit next to the treat bowl. Or, for a fun surprise, attach her to the outside of your house so trick-or-treaters have to look twice to see what is scaling your wall. Try attaching her to some fishing line so she can get up close and personal with the costumed little ones stopping by for the night. You could even make her a part of your own costume—just cover yourself in cobwebs and bring Webster Witch along with you for the evening!
