These cute characters would look great decorating your home for Halloween or at any time of the year! The baubles are a quick and easy knit. Using DK weight yarn the characters round body measures 5cmx5cm / 2inx2in, change the yarn weight to change their size.

Choose from a bat, a cat, a pumpkin or a spider; make all four, or several of each character, the possibilities are endless!

I used DK weight yarn from my stash (wool/acrylic mix) and US3/3.25mm needles. No more than 10g (33yds) of DK weight yarn is required for each character. I used two green/black beads for the eyes, however duplicate stitch with green or black yarn could be used as an alternative.
For the larger pumpkin, I used worsted weight yarn.
