Spooky Scarves

November 2nd, 2010 by Cobwebs

Spider ScarfIt’s stuff like this that really makes me wish I were better at crochet. Crafty Lady Abby makes scarves with spiders, skulls, bats, orange-and-black stripes, and all manner of other loveliness. I really like the subtlety of the spooky patterns; they just look like straightforward scarves until you spot the design.

The post doesn’t offer tutorials, but she points to a pattern for one design and her photos are clear enough that someone familiar with crochet could probably figure out how to do something similar.

It’s definitely scarf weather (at least, in this hemisphere), so this should be excellent inspiration to run up an eerie accessory for yourself or as a gift.

Bonus: Be sure to check out the tutorials she did for Skull-A-Day. I especially love this fan.

    Want! I love the subtlety. I crocheted when I was a kid, but only ever circles. Maybe I’ll spring this on my sister-in-law, who still crochets.

    Also, the “lettuce that has eaten your head” is fantastic! Just what the Cthulhu Cultist on your xmas list needs!

    Thanks for the love. I should probably update that post with links to three skull filet crochet patterns that I wrote instructions for. Ofcourse, they were for Skull-A-Day.

    This one has two different skull scarfs. One featured in your linked post.

    This one can be turned into a scarf or something else if wanted.
