SIMPLY CROCHET PATCH HACK
GIVE YOUR PATCH THE HALLOWEEN TWIST
I LOVE a novelty jumper and xmas gets a lot of hype and I feel Halloween misses out!! So with my spare yarns from my Halloween Hexmex jumper I have taken a Halloween twist on my Pumpkin Patch pattern, which is currently out in Simply Crochet magazine No. 76!
Just tack the patch front and centre on your fave jumper for the holiday season for the novelty jumper goodness and then take off after!
PUMPKIN & PUMPKIN EDGING
Swapping the Black for Coral (if also using spare from Halloween Hexmex) or Orange, follow the pattern in Simply Crochet for the Pudding. Use any yarn scraps you have for the edge and follow the Pudding Edging pattern.
