Halloween Costume Accessories to Crochet

See also

What is this? A Halloween article in the middle of August? Indeed it is. But already, people are planning out their costumes for the coming Halloween, and you want to get a jump on your friends with some of these very cool costuming accessory ideas.

This article is sorted into two categories - patterns that are free, and patterns that come at a reasonable cost. Either way you choose to go, these items are must have for Halloween, the play room or any time you feel like being a bit different!

This first round of costuming patterns come to us from the archives on Ravelry. If you are a knitter, crocheter, spinner or weaver, Ravelry is just the community for you! It is free to sign up, and thousands of different communities based on interests, locations and lifestyles, as well as any other hobbies. I myself belong to several communities on Ravelry, and find it a good place for patterns, crocheting info, fun competitions and people of common interests to myself. I highly recommend it.
