Knitmare on Elm Street offers an edgy and imaginative collection of knitting projects. Perfect for the fall/Halloween season, it shows an alternative take on the traditional craft designed to appeal to the modern knitter in search of something a little different.

Ghoulishly inclined knitting enthusiasts can create a diverse range of creepy crafts, from cuddly toys and miniature dioramas to 3Dknitted pictures, laptop cosies, and cushion covers. Clear instructions written in a down-to-earth and humorous tone make the projects uncomplicated for beginners. Tips on how to incorporate light, sound, and trickier techniques into the projects allow the more advanced to take their knitting to the next spooky dimension.

Projects include: a plush monkey with miniature cymbals, ventriloquist’s dummy hand puppet, Haitian voodoo doll, sideshow carnival finger puppet theater, and a spinning monster carousel with optional light and sound effects, and much more.

A diverse range of creepy crafts, from cuddly toys and miniature dioramas to 3D knitted pictures, cosies, and cushion covers.
