Stephanie Pokorny is known for her crocheting her kids the craziest Halloween costumes without using templates.
Pokorny learned how to crochet when she was 16-years-old, but really took things to the next level after her fourth son was born: “My youngest son was the first recipient of one of these costumes,” she told My Modern Met. “Over time, it has become an absolute tradition my boys look forward to. They get to tell me what they want to be and I then work to create it for them.”
“Each piece takes somewhere between 40 and 50 hours as of late, and I work on them over the course of a few weeks usually,” she explains.
“Each year, I really work to improve my skills and develop new ways to manipulate the crochet to achieve the results I desire.”
“We live in upper Ohio and so cozy crochet has really worked in our favor for Halloween,” Pokorny says. “Sometimes it snows here!”
