Don’t have a knitmare this Halloween season – there’s still plenty for you to make. Alan Dart’s super-scary spider mixes up petrifying purple with bewitching black to make a terrifying toy that’s just the thing to startle pesky pranksters and trick-or-treaters!
“Knit up this eight-legged fiend and place him in a window to scare away unwanted visitors,” says designer Alan Dart. Or you could give him to a little devil, all ready to cause mayhem with some Halloween pranks. And, remember with those knitted red shoes, this little critter is all ready to sneak up on some poor unsuspecting souls.
Spooky Spider is 28cm tall, to the tip of his hat. The pattern is available in the October 2012 issue of Simply Knitting (98) - the price we've listed is for buying the digital issue on Apple Newsstand.
