Our Top 5 Knitted and Crocheted Fancy Dress Costumes

Our Top 5 Knitted and Crocheted Fancy Dress Costumes

What would Halloween be without fancy dress? Whether it’s scary and spooky or cute and quirky, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite knitted and crocheted Halloween outfits to give you some inspiration for October 31st. Which one will you try?

Spiderweb Mandela Tunic by eloracastle

Eight-legged creatures are a classic element of Halloween, and eloracastle’s crochet pattern is a great way of incorporating them into your costume. Whether you choose to dress up as a witch, a vampire or any other Gothic creature, you can’t go wrong with this web-inspired make!

Baby Witch Costume by Calleighs Clips

This adorable witch hat and cape by Calleighs Clips are too cute to be called spooky! Made for babies aged from 0-6 months old, the cape is exclusively for little ones, but the hat can be made for all ages. The pattern even comes with instructions on how to personalise your hat with two different brims or knitted braids!

Once Upon a Knit by Genevieve Miller

Crammed full of great dress-up ideas, you’ll be hard-pressed not to find a knitted garment you wouldn’t want you to make for Halloween. Why not make yourself the Ruby Red Riding Hood? There are even instructions on how you can make a matching one for your daughter! You can find a full interview with the author right here on the LK blog.

Octopus Dog by Lion Brand

Don’t leave your beloved four-legged friend out of the Halloween fun! Knit him this adorable octopus get-up instead. With eight tentacles and even a little hood, try giving it that individual touch by choosing your own shades of yarns. You pup will be the coolest for miles around!

Halloween Accessories by Susie Johns

Already got your outfit, but need some spooky accessories to go with it? Try your hand at making our own quick-knits by LK Designer Susie Johns! Add some cute devil horns to your get-up, or why not make our mask, perfect for those all-the-rage Superhero costumes.
