Red Riding Hood and The Wolf Costumes

Work up some fairytale characters with this Red Riding Hood and The Wolf Costumes patterns. These simple crochet Halloween patterns are the perfect instant costumes. They get the idea of these classic characters across, but there aren't a lot of complicated bits and pieces to create. Make a crochet shawl for Red Riding Hood and an easy crochet hat for the wolf, and you're done! For Halloween, you could raid your closets for other clothes that would expand the costumes, like grey shirt and pants for the wolf, and a cute dress for Red. The best part is the kids can use these for dress-up all year long!
