Knitted Witch on the Brother 940


I'll Get You My Pretty!

I’ll Get You My Pretty!

I was in a bad mood yesterday and don’t know why. I locked my knitting room door at five and did not come out until 10 pm to walk the dog. This is what I came out with!

I knitted this witch a couple of years ago but did it a little differently from the pattern. I followed the small size but I made the dress arms first and attached on the 82nd row of knitting the dress. I also decreased the sleeves so they were not so bulky at the shoulder. On the body I just started with the neck and followed the tension and pattern for the small size.I also knitted the hat but on this one I used the hat it came with.  Years ago I bought several of the witch heads with hands for 2.99 at Pat Catan’s. I can’t believe I used the Brother without my color changer. My next one will be on the passap.

This pattern is from Machine Knitters Source 2001 September, October issue.

It is funny because in article is says www. redheart.com. I believe it might have been a hand knitting pattern converted to machine by the woman who is given credit in the magazine. Also, the larger one is done with Red Heart and can be done on the Bulky machine. If you don’t have an electronic machine you can just hand pull the stitches for the pumpkins since they are only ten rows. I included a picture of the witch in the magazine and you can knit the head and nose if you want to. I didn’t!

Total length is about 16 inches to the top of her head. I wish she had a mean looking face though.  I thought I would see if she sells in my Etsy store.

Witch and Moon Throw on Passap


I made this witch and moon throw for my friend Linda if she wants it. She has had a really rough week. Halloween is her favorite time of year. I used technique 211, black strippers all the way with no mistakes on the back. I was able to figure out how to get the moon round instead of oblong! The size is 32 by 34 inches. I think the witches nose is about 10 inches long  too. lol
