And here's something else I have seen this month – an increase in the number of little pumpkin figures on all the backpacks. We are in Japan right now and most of the girls have some kind of soft animal attached to their school bags at all times. Well, to be honest there's also a fair number of boys' bags with something attached too! But today, I saw Pooh Bear on a pumpkin, a super‐hero‐style teddy with an orange cape and several other ghouls, ghosties and other figures in Halloween outfits.
Yes, Halloween is only 4 weeks' away and creeping up fast!
The pattern comes in two size: a Stroller/push‐chair size and a Toddler bed size. The Stroller blanket is a square pattern measuring 90x90 cm/36x36 ins, with rounded corners as an extra feature. The pattern is completely reversible too, so it is easy to put into position without having to worry which side is showing.
The Toddler‐bed size is a little wider and longer (100x110 cm/ 40x45 ins), so would be perfect to keep your little one warm when they get back home again.
The pattern can be purchased and downloaded directly from my website, so please click here for more details. I hope you enjoy the build‐up to Halloween! (Oh, and where can I find one of those little Pooh Bears on a pumpkin.....?)
Happy Halloween & Happy Knitting!
