Tomorrow is I Love Yarn Day, which in our opinion, is a guilt-free reason to buy yarn and cast on a new project. As to not leave any of your current WIPs behind, pick a small project that will give you the thrill of casting on and off in the same weekend. And because Halloween is a few weeks away, consider making these small Halloween accessories. They’re quick and satisfying and help us celebrate that yarn can be used for any occasion.

Spider Basket Pot Box by Fibita Marta

The fuzzy yarn hides the division where the lid meets bowl so you can hide your favorite candy where no one will find it. Made with bulky weight yarn and a G hook, this spider also requires safety eyes and pipe cleaner legs.
