With Halloween at the end of the month we're starting to think about fancy dress... If you're stuck for ideas for your kids (or yourself!) then why not have a go at this crochet wicked witch costume? Forget tacky lycra outfits bought in a one size fits all (but actually fits nobody) or that old white sheet that's been used year in year out since your child was tall enough to stand, and instead try your hand at a really unique crocheted costume.
With a pattern for the witch's hat, the cobweb collar and a spider to complete the look, this is a brilliant way to make your Halloween outfit and will provide plenty of fun dress-up opportunities in years to come (apologies to that sad old sheet).
