Easy Halloween Crochet Trio

By: Armina from Crafts by AP

This adorable trio is definitely the next crochet project you should make. These are such easy crochet patterns perfect for Halloween. They're spook-tacular.

I utilized felt and glue for the facial features – if you do not want to use felt, you can crochet or embroider the face pieces. You can also use glue-on wiggle eyes.

Materials:

  • Red Heart Soft – Tangerine (For Pumpkin & Witch)
  • Red Heart Soft – Dark Leaf (For Pumpkin Leaves)
  • Red Heart Soft – White (For Ghost)
  • Red Heart Soft – Guacamole (For Witch)
  • Red Heart Soft – Black (For Witch)
  • Size US-F/3.75mm Crochet Hook
  • Black Felt (Small Amount)
  • White Felt (Small Amount)
  • Aleene’s Tacky Glue
  • 15mm Wiggle Eyes (For Witch)
  • Polyester Fiberfill
  • Blunt darning needle
  • Black Embroidery Floss
  • Sewing Needle

Abbreviations:
SC = Single Crochet
TR = Treble Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
Ch = Chain
Rnd(s) = Round(s)
Beg = Beginning
St(s) = Stitch(es)
2tog = Crochet 2 stitches together (decrease)
* = Repeat stitches from * to end of *
2nd = Second
Pattern Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds; do not join and do not
  • turn unless specified.
  • Use stitch marker to indicate beginning of rounds.
  • Make your stitches tight so stuffing won’t show.
  • Yarn listed is what I used – size may vary with other yarn.

Instructions:

Body: (Same Body for Pumpkin, Ghost and Witch – Use Color Yarn specified in pattern)
Ch 2
Rnd 1: Work 5 in 2nd ch from hook = 5 sc
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc = 10 sc
Rnd 3: *Sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * around = 15 sc
Rnd 4: *Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * around = 20 sc

Fasten off, leave a tail long enough for sewing. Stuff body. Sew opening closed. This will be the bottom. Weave in yarn. Shape body into a cone, flatten the bottom so body can stand.
For Spooky Halloween Pumpkin:
Crochet 1 body in Tangerine Color Yarn following directions above.
For The Pumpkin Leaves (Make 4):
With Dark Leaf Color Yarn, Ch 11
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook
Row 2: 1 TR in next 2 ch
Row 3: 1 DC in next 2 ch
Row 4: 1 HDC in next 2 ch
Row 5: 1 sc in next ch
Row 6: Sl st in last ch
Fasten off, leave a tail long enough for sewing. Sew leaves on top of Pumpkin, one on each side, one in back and one in front; weave in yarn.
TIP: I overlapped the front leaf over the 3 leaves to cover any open spots on top of head.
For the Pumpkin Face:

  1. Cut 2 triangles in black felt for eyes.
  2. Cut 2 half circles for the center of the eyes in white felt.
  3. Cut 1 large half moon for the mouth in black felt.
  4. Cut 1 small rectangle for the tooth in white felt.

Glue the white center eye on the bottom of the black felt eye. Glue the face felt pieces on face and allow to dry.
TIP: To control the amount of glue applied, I use a toothpick.
NOTE: Depending on the yarn you use, the body size may vary slightly. Cut felt pieces to accommodate size of body.
Your Halloween Pumpkin is done! Pumpkin measures 3-1/2” tall.
For The Spooky Halloween Ghost:
Crochet 1 body with White Color Yarn following directions above.
For the Ghost Face:

  1. Cut 2 circles in black felt for the eyes.
  2. Cut 2 small circles for the center of the eyes in white felt.
  3. Cut 1 oval in black felt for the mouth.

Glue the white center eye on the bottom of the black felt eye. Glue the face felt pieces on face and allow to dry.
NOTE: Depending on the yarn you use, the body size may vary slightly. Cut felt pieces to accommodate size of body.
Your Halloween Ghost is done: Ghost measures 3-1/2” tall.
For The Spooky Halloween Witch:
Crochet 1 body with Guacamole Color Yarn following directions above.
For Witch’s Hair:
With Tangerine Color Yarn, measure 6 strands of yarn 7” long. Cut another piece of yarn about 8” long (leave one piece slightly longer – you will use this piece of yarn to sew the hair on to the witch’s head). Tie in center of 6 strand bunch, knot to secure. Make 3 bunches. For the bangs, measure 6 strands of yarn 4” long. Cut another piece 5” long (leave one piece slightly longer – you will use this piece of yarn to sew the hair on to the witch’s head).
To attach the hair, place one yarn bunch, with knot on center of top of head;
Have one half of yarn bunch fall on right side, the other half on the left side. Thread needle with yarn and sew hair on top of head. Place second yarn bunch next to the first, sew on head. Place last yarn bunch on back of head and sew on to head. Secure stitches. Now lay the yarn bunch for the bangs on front of head and sew on to head. Trim ends of hair.
For The Witch’s Hat:
With Black Yarn, ch 2
Rnd 1: Work 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook = 5 sc
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc = 10 sc
Rnd 3: Sc in each sc
Rnd 4: *Sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * around = 15 sc
Rnd 5: Sc in each sc
Rnd 6: *Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * around = 20 sc
Rnd 7: Sc in each sc
Rnd 8: *Sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * around = 25 sc
Rnd 9-11: Sc in each sc
Rnd 12: Work 2 HDC in each sc = 50 HDC
Rnds 13-14: Sc in each HDC
Fasten off, leave a tail long enough to sew the hat on her head.
To shape tip of hat, gently push the end of your crochet hook to bring the tip to a point. Be careful not to poke a hole through the tip of the hat.
Stuff tip of hat lightly. Thread needle with yarn and weave yarn to where you started the HDC. Position hat on witch’s head and sew hat on head.
Weave in yarn.
To finish hat, cut a piece of Tangerine color yarn long enough to go around the base of the hat and to tie a bow. Wrap the Tangerine color yarn around hat base and tie into a bow. Using a toothpick, apply a tiny dot of glue on 4 spots around yarn to keep it secure.
Position and glue the wiggle eyes. Thread sewing needle with black embroidery floss and sew a smiley mouth.
Your Spooky Halloween Witch is done! She measures 5” tall to tip of hat.
Variations:
As Ornaments:
You can make these cute Halloween toys as ornaments. Crochet a chain long
enough to hang - attach crocheted chain on top of head.

These cute Halloween toys can also be made to place on a mantle for a quick
and easy decoration. Crochet a chain for legs as follows:
Row 1: Ch 16 with same yarn color as body

Row 3: Ch 1
Row 4: Work 4 DC in same ch
