This is probably my favorite Halloween throw. Its so simple to work up, and because its a Red Heart Yarns project, theres a free download that can be accessed here http//www.redheart.com/free-patterns/pumpkin-face- == throw The squares are worked first, then the features for the pumpkins and the lettering are added last. A wonderful project using only a few colors of yarn and basic stitches. Easy peasy!

I've seen this pattern floating around the internet. I always thought about trying it out since I am totally obsessed with all things Halloween. It seems like it would be fun to make all the squares. However, making each piece of the faces might take some time. I am sure when it's all said and done, the hard work will reward you with a beautiful afghan to show off.
