This pattern was originally found in "150 Weekend Crochet Projects", but I'll write it out for you guys here.
- Orange and black is an awesome Halloween combination, but I think this could be done in a lot of different colors. Black and white, purple and green, green and orange?! Halloween is amazing, and the possibilities for this are endless. not to mention, this is a fairly quick project, so making a handful wouldn't be absurd.
