Pumpkins not your thing? Lion Brand
has a new free pattern for a spiderweb and spiders
, just in time for Halloween.
Lion Brand has been doing a lot better in the pattern department in recent months. The fun fur madness
appears to be a thing of the past. This nifty little pattern is right in line with their fresher, more contemporary offerings.
It's primarily made out of yarn wrapped around wire and foam balls. They recommend Lion Wool
, but I'd go with a cheaper acrylic yarn instead, since you're gonna be needing a LOT of the stuff.
Don't the thumbnail fool you, this spiderweb is about 5 feet in diameter and the spiders' legs are almost a foot long. If you don't have the floor or lawn space, it would also probably look great on a wall. You could also probably tinker with the instructions to make a smaller web to fit your space.
