"Jolly Jack-O-Lantern" Halloween Banner
Designed by Sandi Marshall

Worsted weight yarn - 3 oz. light tan for background
1 oz. orange, 1 oz. black, small amount bright yellow or gold for cross-stitched details
US Size G crochet hook
Dowel for hanging

Finished Size: (not counting tabs) 13 1/2" x 14"
Gauge: 7 single crochet = 2 inches, 8 rows = 2 inches

To make a plain crocheted background to cross-stitch the entire design on, starting chain is 51 chains for single crochet or 50 chains for afghan stitch. Work this background for 50 rows.

When all rows on chart are crocheted, you may opt to add a border in single crochet around the outside edge of the piece. Be sure to work (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner stitch to keep the corner areas from curling.

Banner Tabs: (Make 4)
Chain 6
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across. (5 sc)
Rows 2 - 10: Sc in each stitch across. (5 sc)

Fold each tab in half. Decide where you will position the tabs across the top of the banner (you may want to pin in place before sewing). Using yarn and a large-eye yarn or tapestry needle, sew bottom edges only of the tabs to the top of the banner. Insert dowel through the tabs for hanging.
