Free Halloween Crochet Patterns!

Updated on September 19, 2011

Veeerrry Scaaarry Crochet!

(And some veeery cuuuute crochet, too!)

I love Halloween. Love it. I also love creating crafty Halloween crocheted objects. I also love free crochet patterns.

To celebrate all these loves, I have created this lens. Below you will find free patterns, tutorials, and other fun stuff to help you deck out your home and your self this Halloween.

(And by other fun stuff, I mean how to make fake blood that won't stain your skin.)

Nothing says Halloween like a ghost. Well, if it can talk, that is. Here are some awesomely cute little ecto plazmic manifestions for you to crochet.

Go ahead. If your yarn gets too slimy you can always wash it off in the sink.

Squee or Squeel? - Vote for your favorite Halloween style

Halloween used to be a feared night; a night when the veil between the worlds was thin and there was no telling what you might bump into in the dark. Now, it's a celebration of all things cute. You're just as likely to see a Disney Princess these days as you are a goblin.

What do you prefer? Are you scrubbing fake blood from underneath your nails on November first? Or, is Halloween all about smiling pumpkins and crystal candy dishes? Chime in below:

Which style of Halloween decoration puts you in the mood? (For candy corn.)

Bats are a great Halloween decoration idea! Hang them up, make them center pieces, top (non lit) candles with them, applique them onto pillows. The list goes on and on.

I've never been a big fan of the zombie genre...until now. A friend introduced me to the Walking Dead series of comic books and I am so hooked. So, in honor of all those fans of the undead out there, I went hunting for patterns of those rambling, mumbling, decaying former humans.

I didn't find as many as I'd hoped, so I threw in some monster and random body part patterns, too. Because you know you want to freak out your friends with your very own Monster Finger Chapstick Cozy. Am I right or am I right?

Amigurumi Tuturial

DId you just stumble over the name of the first monster project up there? Amigurumi (pronounced a-me-goo-roo-me) is a Japanese crochet technique famous for it's ability to make ever the most hardened of hard-hearts go, "Awwww, how cute is that!?" If you've never tired it, never fear! Here's a little tutorial to get you started.

Or just need a little refresher on how to make awesomely cute stuffed creatures? Here ya go.

(For further free fun, check out my lens: Amigurumi: Cute, Cuddly, Crochet.)

Halloween is the perfect opportunity to show off your mad crochet skills. With naught but a ball of yarn, a hook, and one of these patterns you can turn yourself into an alligator, a bearded dwarf, or Marge Simpson. (Ya, that's right. I used the word naught.)

Halloween Patterns, Hard Copy Style

Feeling the need to get your hands on some hard copy patterns? I understand, and being the (crochet) enabler that I am, I've anticipated that need and provided you with a selection. Enjoy!

Whether you like then cute or scary, the black cat makes a great Halloween symbol. So, break out the black yarn and make yourself a cuddly little friend to celebrate All Hallows Eve.
