You can see my past years costumes here:
Each year I try to create costumes more epic than the one’s before. This year will be AWESOME!
As I create a series of patterns, each one released leading up to Halloween, they reveal clues to what Nate and I plan to wear!
Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this project:
My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.

-The pants that I made measure: Length (Waist to ankle): 35 inches, Waist: 32 inches around, Hips around: 40 inches, Ankles around: 12 inches, Strap length: 36 inches, Strap width: 2 Inches
-This project goes off measurements, so you can make as many stitches as you want that fits around your body.
-Use a smaller crochet hook to make this smaller, and use a larger crochet hook to make these bigger
-These pants are made from the bottom up and are seamed on the inseam and then worked in rounds to make the top part of the pants.
-Turn your work every time it says “TURN”
-The chain 2 at the beginning of each row does NOT count as a stitch. Do not work into it.
