Little Witches with Black Cats and Brooms seem to go hand-in-hand with October. I think you’ll love working up this adorable Halloween-ish set. The witch is worked from the bottom-up and seamlessly. The arms are picked up and knit on to the body. The hat is worked from the bottom-up and the brim is picked up and worked on from the cast on edge. The cat is worked seamlessly from the bottom-up. The ears and tail are picked up and knit on to the head and body. The broom is worked from the top-down in one-piece.
Little Witch: Measures 6-inches tall including the hat
Black Cat: 2 ½ inches tall
Broom: 4-inches in length
