Halloween Patterns

Gosh, here we are already at the end of October. I am so excited that Halloween is on a weekend this year so I can be home to pass out candy. I get home from work too late during the week to catch most trick-or-treaters, so it has been several years since I have bought candy for Halloween. And, because next year is a leap year, I won’t get this chance again until 2020 when Halloween lands on a Saturday again! Crazy.

I haven’t done any Halloween stitching, but here are a few patterns I love with a Halloween theme:


Clockwise from top left:

  1. “Jack’s Bash” by Plum Street Samplers
  2. “Oct. 31st” by With Thy Needle and Thread
  3. “Year in Chalk October” by Hands On Design
  4. “Halloween Cove” by By The Bay Needleart
  5. “Mini Witches and Crones” from Heaven And Earth Designs
  6. “Hocus Pocus” by Prairie Schooler

I love the “Year in Chalk” series that Hands on Design has been doing this year. I have not bought them yet, but I am so tempted to splurge and get the whole set of 12 months.

The “Mini Witches and Crones” design is by the artist Jane Wooster Scott. I have three cross-stitch patterns from Heaven and Earth Designs adapted from her artwork, but I’ll admit I have not yet started stitching any of them. I am still too intimidated by HAEDs, but I love Scott’s folk art style.

Finally, “Hocus Pocus” is in my pattern stash. Prairie Schooler has a number of great Halloween designs. I may have to pull this one out of the stash and aim for next Halloween…
