I havent made the Halloween stripe version shown here, but I have made this afghan style before. I have one draped on the back of my sofa, done up in teal, bright coral, hot pink, black, spring green, and cobalt blue. It is such an easy and mindless pattern to work up while you are lounging in front of the tv. Now this one, I cannot wait to get one of these started for the Halloween season!

Oh. Oh. Oh. A brighter yellow, a deeper purple, and more rows of those colors, and, oh. yeah. some Frankenstein Green, and ooohhh ligh wee, and it will be thee perfect halloween ghan!
