1 - Mr. Creeper the Spider

Mister Creeper is a cute and also quite scary looking spider! I think it's the beady black eyes and the little fangs that make you look twice to make sure he's only made from yarn. All in all the perfect addition to your Halloween decor!

This project is a cross between crocheting and knitting (and construction, if you count using wire). The spider’s body is crocheted in one piece and the legs are knitted. If knitting really isn't your thing you can also use black pipe cleaners!
