Turn your Ichabod cardigan or any other pumpkin-orange sweater into a quick and easy Jack’o’lantern Halloween costume with Cucurbita and a little black makeup! This fascinator is knit with worsted weight yarn held triple using US 7 / 4.5 mm needles to create a dense fabric that keeps its shape, and it’s a great little project for using up leftover yarn. It only takes an hour or two to finish, which makes it the perfect quick knit for a last minute costume. Attach it to a narrow headband or hair comb, and all you have left to do is draw some Jack’o’lantern makeup on your face.
