There's only a week to Halloween and it's high time you got some final projects off the ground for your party! Today we're sharing some fun knitting and crochet pieces that are great for this vacation. Some of these are cute and some are really scary. Once you are comfortable with knitting and crochet techniques, it is high time to get started!
Black cats are traditional for Halloween, and crocheting some for the party is a great idea, not just for kids but adults too. This pattern is interesting because it is worked as a whole piece from top to bottom. That means the head, neck and body are one continuous piece! The little red bow collar is such a cute touch and a bright pop of color!
This is a Halloween cauldron with various things to fill it up, and it's fully crocheted! This plush toy is perfect for little hands. It features a large cauldron with a smiling jack-o-lantern, friendly ghost, and squishy spider. The features are all complemented with non-toxic, puffy paint, making the toy free of choking hazards!
Partly inspired by the Snapchat ghost, partly by a traditional ghoul, we think these little boys are the perfect Halloween homeware. And they are super easy, we promise! Perfect as a fun crochet project for beginners. Each individual ghost is made separately, starting at the top and bottom towards the bottom edge.
Skulls are natural for Halloween, they're everywhere, of every material and appearance, but a crocheted skull lantern is something new. Here is a picture of a new candle lighting the skull - it will make a beautiful decoration in your front window for Halloween! Check out how to crochet this piece to turn an ordinary mason jar into a cool lantern.
A sweet corn rat? Yes, please! This cute and fun colorful animal is a great idea to wow your kids on Halloween - you can put it on the dessert table and amaze the kids!
Let me introduce you to Cebollín, the hipster ghost, a naughty ghost who tries to be the most fashionable of the undead. And guess what? It glows in the dark! Crochet this ghost for the coming Halloween! Remember, if you are not the trendy type, the toy will look cute even without the accessories.
This little pattern from Jack Skellington - The Pumpkin King (character from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Xmas) is very simple, and you can easily sit an afternoon and make some key chains as Halloween gifts or even put them in your treat bag!
This little cauldron is such a fun Halloween crochet pattern that you can work up and add to your Halloween decor! And it's the perfect size to add those goodies to your candy as well!
With his dangling eyes and gaping mouth, this apparition is the classic zombie every inch. Clad in poor, ragged clothes, and with last word in bad hair days, this poor fellow has wounds all over the place, and his entrails flow from his midst in hideous garlands of wool. Don't worry too much, though - they'll neatly tuck into their specially made pouch if that's your preference.
Create a spooky tree with a branch or use these ornaments anywhere a little Halloween fun is needed. Choose from three Ghost variants and two sizes of Jack o 'Lanterns.
