Featuring two adorable bats and two spooky pumpkins, this Halloween bundle is a must have to decorate your home for fellow trick and treaters.

This knitted pattern has been designed by Amanda Berry from FluffandFuzz in Deramores Studio DK yarn.

Level: Intermediate

Sizes:

  • Large Pumpkin: 13cm tall/14cm wide.
  • Small Pumpkin: 7cm tall/9cm wide.
  • Bats: 13cm tall/19cm wide with wings stretched out.

Yarn:

  • 1 x Deramores Studio DK - Paprika (70055)
  • 1 x Deramores Studio DK - Peridot (70011)
  • 1 x Deramores Studio DK - Smoke (70026)
  • 1 x Deramores Studio DK - Ebony (70027)

In addition to the yarn, needles and knitting pattern you will need some notions from your craft cupboard including:

  • Toy filling
  • A tapestry or darning needle for sewing up
  • Two 22mm toy safety eyes for the large pumpkin - using green and black eyes are extra spooky!
  • Two 6mm domed black buttons or toy safety eyes per bat
  • A 9mm pink flocked toy safety nose per bat, or you can embroider in yarn instead
  • White felt fabric to back the washers of the eyes/nose - this helps keep these small pieces in place so they cannot be pulled through the knitting
  • A 50cm length of white embroidery thread or floss per bat to embroider the mouth
  • A 25cm black chenille stem or pipe cleaner per bat to strengthen the wings so you can pose them

Please note - you will need to register with the Deramores website so that the pattern can be emailed to you.
