Comments: While there are a few patterns here that would work well as Halloween Costumes/jumpers most suffer from being from the 80's and mohair. The Kids patterns would be marginally acceptable but most of them would get the kids teased, possibly rightly so.
Buy/Borrow: Borrow to understand how nasty it can be. and why complicated inartasia and mohair should NEVER happen.
