Today’s the first day of Fall which means it’s officially time for some creepy crafting! This week we’re celebrating by kicking Halloween prep off with a skull-turning necklace, crocheted using chunky, black & white jersey yarn and a Jumbo Amour hook. Speaking of, this project will surely get your kids hooked on crochet. Created using only the chain stitch it’s a great, first project that your baby boos can make with friends. Looking for a treat for teacher? This necklace will do the trick! So chain on and have some fun using your crochet skills for stitching Skelly. Enjoy!
