Pattern Description:

I wanted to make a Halloween pattern and when I thought of what would be a scary item, I immediately thought of spiders and black widows. Black widows still give me nightmares on occasion and so I made one to fit on my desk for the holidays.

He is accompanied by his larger brother, the black spider who watches the world, waiting for his prey.

Note: This pattern uses crochet for the body and knit for the legs as well as wire to make the legs stiff.
