Hello Rainbows 🌈
Halloween is fast approaching and it’s a holiday that I really enjoy!
I know that many of you also appreciate it and crochet small decorations for the occasion. And that’s good, a week ago, I had a new idea for a little pattern (which was not planned at all at the base 😆) to add this Halloween touch to your home decoration or even to illustrate your crochet photos on the social networks. So I share with you the pattern of the Halloween garland 🎃
Simple and quick, you can make it in any color you want! For my part, I made a version with the traditional colors, that is to say the ghosts in white and the pumpkins in orange. But, I also made one with softer colors with blue, pink and purple.
This pattern is also perfect for using up leftover balls of yarn that you don’t know what to do with 😄
Very easy, it is perfectly suited for beginner crocheters. It has been tested and approved by my team of testers. I hope you will like it too!
