What’s Halloween without a dose of The Rocky Horror Picture Show?! That’s right, our 10th pattern in the Night at the Movies sock club is inspired by the cult classic itself!

I was first introduced to The Rocky Horror Picture show when I was 14, and it was wild. I continued to be in love with it after high school, dressing up as Magenta (my curls get real big and frizzy like that!), throwing all the toast while singing along with the special Halloween theater showings. Not including the film in the club would have been a complete dishonor to how amazing it is.

Grab your yarn as we prepare to do the Timewarp. We will join Janet and Brad on their adventure as they meet all the entertaining characters and fall in love with this movie all over again.

This pattern is available for individual sale or the entire Night at the Movies Sock Club as a whole.
