Halloween is just around the corner! Even sooner, really, if you’re DIY-ing it. This would be a good opportunity to start your Scarfigan if you’re going with a Harry Potter or Doctor Who theme, but my sister provided another costume opportunity that I just had to share with you.

During their recent trip to NYC, my sister took her girls to see Wicked on Broadway. SUCH a great show! My niece, Noelle, decided that she wanted to be Elphaba for Halloween this year and needed a beanie for her costume. It appears that Elphaba’s actual beanie is a simple, openwork crochet pattern with almost no brim/edging at the bottom and lord knows I cannot crochet for the life of me. This design, called “Elphabulous” is for us knitters who want the same effect! And it’s FREE! Happy Halloween!
