Twenty evil projects, ranging from freak-show oddities to carnival curios. This book includes instructions for knitting a voodoo doll, gravestones, ghosts, cymbal-clashing monkeys, freakshow finger puppets, creepy clowns, zombies and many more fiendish characters. The patterns included in the book assume a basic level of knitting skill including casting on and off, knit stitch, purl stitch, increases, decreases and knitting in the round. Each project has full and detailed instructions, but there are tips a-plenty on customising your evil knitted items to truly make each project your own, offering something for beginners and advanced knitters alike.
Hannah Simpson's first knitting project at the age of six, a misshapen and holey scarf, was terrifying for all the wrong reasons; she has since had a lot of practice. A die-hard fan of horror and science fiction, she eventually combined her interests, leaving behind the traditional world of knitting to create armies of knitted zombies and classic horror characters, which have appeared in print worldwide.
