Fall might not quite be in the air just yet, but crafty people are definitely starting to get into the fall vibes. I’m longing to knit a big snuggly sweater (and some more pumpkins!) and I’ve been on the lookout for cute knitting patterns featuring jack o’lanterns. Here’s a few things I found.
The Bernat “Very Scary” Pullover features a jack o’lantern face on the front and is sized for kids 2-8 years. This is a free pattern on the Yarnspirations website.
This little Halloween hat from Wiam’s Crafts offers options with jack o’lanterns and ghosts. The top of the hat looks like a spiderweb, too. This free pattern is sized for toddlers and bigger kids.
Rosemary Davis’ Jack-o-lantern Socks (available on Ravelry) are basically normal socks with a jack o’lantern pattern below the cuff and a cute contrasting heel and toe (which is optional, of course!).
These cute tiny treat bags from dollytime on Etsy are adorable for holding little treats for a Halloween party or if you don’t have a ton of trick-or-treaters. Options for embellishment include a pumpkin, witch, cat and owl.
Jack o’lantern dishcloths are a classic and fun project to knit that only requires knowing knits and purls. This version from Daisy and Storm is a great square to use as a washcloth or in an afghan. You can get it on Etsy.
Add Shelley Winiger’s double knit jack o’lantern pot holder and you’ll have a whole holiday ensemble for your kitchen. This one is a free download from Ravelry.
(Speaking of free downloads form Ravelry, check out my Halloween coffee cup cozy.)
If you have a little kid to knit for, these Jack O’Lantern longies are adorable and not that hard to knit. Designer Alison McCalister offers several different faces that can go on the butt of the pants so you can decide the expression on your pumpkin. Download from Ravelry.
