Dont say Boo to this adorable little project. Even though the pattern itself is very simple, you can Scare up a download at the Yarnspirations site (http// == loth.html) . If you make two of the basic ghost shapes and sew them together, this pattern also makes up a delightful dish mitt. Might even get the kiddies to help with the dishes, too!

I love making dishcloths and this one is just too cute! Have your kids help clean up with a "ghost". Make some for Halloween party favors or door prizes. You could even string some up as a banner with clothesline or cotton twine and clothes pins like in the photo.
