Crochet Web For Halloween

I keep claiming that I don’t “do” texture in crochet and here I am working mesh for the best part of a month. First it was the Blue Morph hat, then it was my Word Catcher for Culture Night and now it’s colourful webs for the trees in the garden to catch the spirit of Halloween. I also claim not ever to work in man made yarn but that “rule” also seems to have fallen by the wayside as that is exactly what I have been working all these meshes in!

I was inspired to do these webs as we are having a Haunted Halloween Walk in the historic Tomnafinogue oak forest on Sunday October 28th. I thought I would create some webs to decorate the trees about the place and with a spot of luminous paint, they could be quite spectacular…

I set to work making a pattern for the webs, it’s simple and worked in an acrylic yarn in a DK weight on a 4mm/G hook. I was able to make 5 webs out of 50 grams, so each one doesn’t take an awful lot of yarn and they can be worked in any yarn you like. I chose acrylic for added horridness in the making and not least because it’s often easier to get scary colours in acrylic yarn.

The pattern is available in both UK and US terminology right here if you would like some for your own garden.
Once you buy the pattern it will be sent to you by E-mail as a PDF-file ready to print. It will be sent to you within 24 hours of your purchase.
