The Wonderful World of Witching October 31, 2006

Posted by lunarawe in free knitting patterns, knitting, Paganism & witchcraft.

On this Samhain eve, it seems appropriate to ask the question, “do witches really knit?”

I mean, there have to be more of us out there, right? The answer I uncovered was interesting. I found very few images of witches knitting (but a lot of tacky knitting patterns of witches). One drawing by artist Joshua Isaac Howell depicts the less friendly side of witches, but at least this one is industriously knitting!

Some patterns were actually cute, like this knit-yourself-a-witch’s-hat pattern. This hat is unlikely to protect anyone from a house falling on their head, but it sure will keep them warm in winter.

There were plenty of other stitching witches in the blogosphere, some more active than others. I am sure I have missed folks. Holler if you would like to be included in the list below!
