Free Pattern: Frankenstein Hood

Frankenstein day is coming so what a perfect time to whip up a hood to keep your little monster warm in a fun way.

A few years ago I was asked to design this project for Red Heart Yarns. I chose to make mine with their Reflective yarn in neon gray and charcoal. It could be made out of any bulky weight yarn or even two strands of worsted weight. 

Frankenstein Holidays

Here is what I found on “Holiday Insights“:

  • Frankenstein Day is on August 30. This day is in honor of author Mary Wollenstone Shelley who was born on August 30,1797. She wrote the book “Frankenstein “in 1818. This day in in honor of her birth.
  • Frankenstein Friday is the last Friday in October. Originally, we traced some references back to a website on Frankenberry cereal, which suggests a commercial origin. Recently, the creator came forward and told us about this special day that he created. More on Frankenstein Friday.
  • National Frankenstein Day Google posts this as October 29th. We have not been able to verify that this as a true National  Day. Our latest research suggests this day is really Frankenstein Friday.


This would be a fun and easy way to create a costume. Halloween where I am can get pretty chilly so we try to choose costumes that can keep you warm too.

Cute For Everyday Too

You could leave off the screws at the neck and create a hood in any colors for everyday too. It would also be cute with features from other snappy patterns to create an animal hood.
