BOO again! Our Fav Halloween Patterns for You to Knit

As some of you may or may not know, I’m an avid knitter with some basic crochet skills while Anna is a skilled crocheter who takes knitting as a side chick. So.. I can’t just write a post on Halloween projects to crochet and leave my fellow knitters out! Here’s a roundup of my favorite October 31st-inspired projects to gawk over, knit and ultimately enjoy.
