This is so cute. I love it. I usually don't do a lot for Halloween being as I live alone. But not that all if my grand kids are close by grandma has to get her Halloween self together. This is very easy.mi have seen one similar and lost the pattern. Now I can get it made!

While I do appreciate the illustration showing how to the spider embroidery, this project really needs more photos or other visual aids. The instruction for the square itself is pretty straightforward, but I would like to see more information on working the skull trim. The tiny photo on top is way too small to get the details, and to me, thats one of the best parts of this project.

This is another one of the patterns I have held on to for a while now in my library. I think I am going to finally give it a go. I decided I want to try making more holiday decorations this year, rather than buying them. If you have the skill to create, then why not put it to use?

Looks great as a coaster or sewn together in a mat. I don't see a lot of designs for Halloween crochet so this is great. The skull edging is really unique, it's the perfect finishing touch. This looks like it will take some time to do, so I'm going to get started in September!

On the Spooky Spiderweb Square, it indicates, "Spider Embroidery Using C and yarn needle, secure on the wrong side and bring needle up at 1. Following diagram, make 4 parallel stitches for legs ending with yarn on wrong side." I do not see a Diagram or link to a Diagram. Please help. Thank you. PS. How can I leave a rating if I haven't tried the pattern yet?

Katchie - We apologize for the inconvenience. We have updated the pattern with the diagram that you need. Thank you for your inquiry. Happy crocheting! - Editors of AllFreeCrochet

Haven't tried it yet but it looks cute. Where's the diagram for the spider embroidery?
