I was looking through my instagram and saw the Jack Skellington I uploaded some time ago and thought to myself, I bet someone would love knitting their own Jack.
We also have a Zero -Free- Pattern available in case you want to add another amigurumi into your Nightmare Before Christmas collection
It is super important that you guys know that this pattern belongs to Nichole’s Nerdy Knots, however I can’t seem to find this particular pattern (and many others) anymore 🙁 It’s a shame, really, because her patterns are so detailed and beautiful.
