We chal­lenged two de­sign­ers to come up with a fab de­sign, each us­ing the same yarn… which is your fave?

Sylvia Mar­garet

“Elab­o­rate col­lars are my cro­chet trade­mark. I wanted to keep it classy and with the time in­vested in mak­ing, I wanted it to be some­thing that could be worn more than once. So, think­ing ‘Hal­loween party’, I thought 'what would Mor­ti­cia Ad­dams wear?' This led to me cre­ate a Vic­to­rian Gothic-style high neck piece. At rst glance it just looks like a fancy col­lar, but look again and you can see the skulls – a real talk­ing piece that would trans­form any lit­tle black dress.” See www.sylvia­mar­garet.co.uk

Miki Hem­phill

Miki is a self-con­fessed cro­chet ad­dict, yarn hoarder and crazy cat lady. She loves bright colours and mod­ern boho vibes, shar­ing her makes and pat­terns on her Set Free My Gypsy Soul blog at www.sfmgs.co.uk. She says: “For this project, I wanted to cre­ate some­thing that was fun to make and fun to wear. I love that Hal­loween fancy dress spans across all the gen­res, from gory and scary to cute and pretty, with a bit of ev­ery­thing in be­tween. This fun tiara head­dress com­bines a lit­tle of all of that!”
