Halloween really isn't a big affair in Australia. It's actually quite rare if we have any trick or treaters knock on our door, but that doesn't stop me from having a little basket of treats at the ready just in case. We don't really decorate our houses, but this year I thought it might be cute to put a few spiders webs around the house and garden to get into the spirit of things.
I used a crochet cotton, size 3 crochet hook and based my design on the free pattern from Snowcatcher. It's simple and incredibly effective. It really is very much like making a crochet snowflake (you can see my attempts here), but on a larger scale. I deliberately made my webs so they weren't entirely symmetrical so that they fitted in a little better with the existing, very natural, spiders webs around my front porch!
I know I'm going to run out of time this year, but I would love to cover our front fence with these webs. They look very real from a distance and if I added a couple of amigurumi spiders, I just about might manage to creep out the whole neighbourhood.
