Throughout the United States, it's common for children to pick their Halloween costumes at stores like Target and Party City. Stephanie Pokorny's children, however, simply turn to their mom.
Pokorny is the founder of Crochetverse, a blog and company that sells crochet patterns. Each October, Pokorny combines her two passions — crocheting and her family — by creating elaborate Halloween costumes made almost entirely from yarn for her four sons aged between 4 and 22.
