I have a confession to make: I’m a little crafty. Like, knitting and such crafty. So, recently when Wiccan writer Ash Elding suggested we do some Halloween cross-stitch, I went deep into a rabbit hole on Etsy. And discovered this creepy cross-stitch book full of eerie patterns.

And, there, I found a whole ton of spooky cross-stitch patterns from creators like Night Spirit Studio, Tusk and Cardinal, and the Witchy Stitcher. Even if you’re not into textile arts, I figured you might enjoy looking through these designs. And, at worst, they could make a fun gift for your favorite goth friend or witch.
