NAME THAT PATTERN - Halloween 2013 Edition!

Can it actually be Halloween season?  Wasn't it just Memorial Day?

I'm already seeing people in costume in my neighborhood -- though where I live the line between costume and everyday street clothes is a thin one.  Anyway, it's time to play another round of MPB's exclusive pattern-naming game, Name That Pattern, this time with a spoooooky Halloween theme!

The rules, as always, are simple: I post photos of patterns I've found online, and you have to give them names.  We have all kinds of fabulous prizes in store for our winners, including a complete 1973 World Book Encyclopedia!

Ready?  On your mark, get set, NAME THAT PATTERN!

Here's Pattern #1!

Too tame?  Presenting Pattern #2!

But wait, there's more: here's Pattern #3!

And let's not forget Pattern #4!

We're coming to the end, alas -- Pattern #5!

And finally, our special BONUS pattern, for true Name That Pattern devotees: Pattern #6!

Friends, I hope you've enjoyed our Halloween 2013 edition of Name That Pattern.   It always pays to get your answers in early, since great minds think alike and there are an awful lot of great minds out there; be the first with that "fresh" idea!  I'll be getting my answers in soon and, with a little arm twisting, I'm confident Michael will too.

Can't wait to hear what YOU'RE going to be for Halloween.

Have a great day, everybody!
