Super Scary Crochet

Mom and I were out doing some shopping for Christmas and I was able to redirect her from something I did not want for Christmas to Super Scary Crochet: 35 Gruesome Patterns to Sink Your Hook into which had been on my Christmas list. Mom was pleased to get me a gift I wanted and I was thrilled to add a book with some wonderful patterns for my Halloween box.

This was actually one of the hit gifts of Christmas Eve. Even people who are not interested in crochet passed around the book to look at the characters that Nicki Trench created for this new book. She covers the standard mummies, vampires, and werewolves expected in a horror book. However, evil tomatoes threw me. I suppose there was the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, but I tend to think of them as friendly. I am not sure what it says about my family, but the bunny murdered with a carrot stick was very popular.

If you enjoy the darker side of amigurumi this book might be the one for you. Patterns are written format and do not include charts or symbols. While I have not had a chance to make one yet, the patters appear to be clearly written. They look easy enough to follow. The author has added non-yarn items to some of the patterns to complete the outfits. I am looking forward to adding some new toys to my Halloween boxes this year.

I saw that book and was so tempted to pick it up! Loved the bunny murder.

It's nice to know we are not alone in the bunny murder thing. It is worth putting on a present list.
