I just spotted these cute Halloween crocheting patterns on Craftzine from Lion Brand, and I'm super sad that I have no clue how to crochet. I did notice that the skill level required to whip up these pirate and pumpkin pals is only beginner, so they might be a festive way for me to take up crocheting.
I also spotted this felted skull crochet pattern from Lion Brand which is a fun attempt to make crocheting seem edgy. It's also free if you fill out a simple registration form, which is a plus. Any crocheters out there?
