Surely one of the best things about having small people in your life is having the opportunity to dress them up in silly costumes. With Halloween on its way, now is the perfect time to get started on a project for your little person – don’t forget to take one or two embarrassing snaps for the family photo album!
Live that fantasy

King of the jungle
Every wondered what a lion would look like if you accidentally woke him from a deep slumber? This!
It’s the Franken-beanie! See what we did there? Find the pattern here.
Knights of the realm
We want this little boy’s mum to be our mum - look at the effort she went to for his amazing Narnia-themed party costume!
This is definitely one of those photos that you pull out when your daughter’s first boyfriend comes round for dinner.
There’s definitely Viking blood running through this little one’s veins - look at that steely gaze!
Ahoy me hearties
If ‘pirate’ is your go-to costume choice, whip up an awesome beard with this free pattern.
This sweet sheep pattern is great for Halloween or nativities, plus it’s free!
We love how happy this chappy looks in his cat costume. Knit it for free with this pattern.
The boy who lived
Surely it’s obligatory for all children these days to dress up as Harry or Hermione at least once. This costume, with it’s sweet stripy scarf, is a dream for knitters to recreate.
Yoda I am
We didn’t realise it until now, but we absolutely need a Yoda hat with poseable ears in our life!
Adventures in space
We’d love to be able to pull off Princess Leia buns with as much panache as this sweetie!
