Candy Corn Sweater

Image
I've wanted to work on a Halloween-themed project for the last three years, but every time I find my self swarmed with work, and I miss the opportunity to work on something. So this year, I've decided to start two months ahead, because I'm slow when it comes to creating a design I am satisfied with.  This fluffy sweater features a cute candy corn pattern, is sure to keep a kid warm while trick-or-treating, and comes in 4 sizes. I hope you have enough time to finish knitting it for your beloved little ones.

Candy Corn Drawstring Backpack

Image
Hello everyone! So today, I bring a Halloween-inspired drawstring backpack that the kids can take trick-or-treating. It's fun, simple to make, and it's big enough to collect candy to feed a small army of kids (just kidding). On the other hand, if you are not into that, it can be used as a cute accessory during Halloween season. I hope you have fun making and using it!

Ribbed Shawlette

Hello everyone! This is the third and last shawl I've knitted using Lionbrand Mandala yarn. It is easy and quick to make, looks nice, and could be worn in many ways. Small shawls are a must in every woman's wardrobe, especially those who have outdoor activities. I hope you enjoy making and wearing it.
