- Ghost Pencil Toppers / Finger Puppets
Crochet these little cuties and stick them on your pencil, your finger, where ever. (Hey! No snickerng.) They also make nice party favors. Gotta love a goodie bag with crochet in it.
- "Ghost Dog" Pattern
A ghost dog. A famous one. Hangs around a really skinny guy in a pinstripe suit. Savvy?
- Boo Ghosts
These three ghostly figures give you home that "boo-tastic" look.
This cute little ghost ornament has a stuffed head and a bell body with a pretty little picot edging. Perhaps she was Victorian or something. You know, before she became a ghost.
Three for the price of one! Well, there's really no price. The three little ghosts are totally free...and two of them have got some really nifty free-form-looking edging.
- Curlique Ghost Applique
Refrigerator magnet. Pillow applique. Ornament. Brooch. There are so many possibilities for this little goul. Go ahead and give him a try.
- Little Witch FInger Puppet*
You can now act out the entirety of Wicked with finger puppets! Woo hoo!
- Pink Rabbit Monster Witch
I'm not making this up. It's a pink rabbit monster with a witch's hat and broom. A pink hat and broom. I'm in love.
- Scara-Lee (pdf)
This vintage pattern from 1980 features a witch (Scara-Lee) with her trusty broom, cauldon, and pumpkins. Apparently she's making pumpkin pie for the freezer section of your local grocery store.
- Kitchen Witch
Being the head cook and bottle washer of an inn, I had to include this cute little kitchen witch. The designer says you can also use the basic pattern for a pilgrim.
- Amigurumi Kitty Witch
Another cute animal in a witch costume. Squee!
- Witch Throw
This beautiful throw features a withc in flight holding a jack o' lantern. Ghosts frame her in the corners. Would make an awesome wall hanging for the season.
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.)
- Filet Crochet Bat with Swirl Border
Table cloths, placemats, throws, appliques. This filet crochet chart will help you add a touch of elegance to your Halloween décor.
- Cutsie Wootsie Wittle Bats
Ok, so that was my name for them, not the designer's. But, they deserve such a sticky sweet name. They're so sweet they rival the pile of tootsie rolls I always collect(ed) trick or treating. Almost.
- Amigurumi Bats
Just looking at these cute ami bats, my eyes automatically become large and sparkly, I grow a bow on my head, and my skirt becomes itty bitty. That's how cute they are.
- Little Bat Pattern
This sweet little bat is shown in an amazingly creepy shade of lime green. I love his wings and his ears!
- Bat-Pumpkin Decoration
Da na na na na na na na....Bat Pumpkin! This home décor item is a bat on top of (or maybe flying out of?) a pumpkin. Awesomeness.
Inspired by a trip to Carlsbad Caverns, this sweet little bat doll must be a bit shy. Why else would he play peek-a-boo with his wings like that?
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?
- Zombie Amigurumi
Amigurumi. Zombie. How can you go wrong? This little doll even has a missing arm and half a leg. Great!
- Monster Finger Chapstick Cozy
Have you ever thought to yourself, "Gosh, I wish I could dispense my chapstick out of a rotting severed finger?" Well, here's the pattern for you!
- Eyeball with Nerve Endings (pdf)
Crocheted with size 8 Perle Cotton, these eyeballs have a great level of detail. I love the bloody nerve endings that hang off the back! Eeeeewwww!
- Cthulu Doll
Here's the mother of all mosters! Make your own huggable version of Lovecraft's signature creature.
- Psychotic Tomato
Ok, so maybe not strictly Halloween themed, but I had to include him. I loved Attack of the Killer Tomatoes as a kid, and this little guy makes me giggle each time I see him. :)
- Zombie Kitten Sam Hain
Amazingly creepy in its simplicity, this doll will make sure your Halloween is rockin' - or else!

It's a crochet Marge Simpson wig. Your argument is invalid.

This little crochet web looks lovely on the side of a top hat, or pinned into an up do. Make it for your favorite steampunk and be prepared to be hugged.
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!
- Jiji the Cat
Modeled after the cat in Kiki's Delivery Service, this cute little kitty has the perfect "Who, me?" expression. I'm guessing he didn't even bother asking about treats, and just went right to the "trick" option.

Check out this member the Itty Bitty Kitty In a Pumpkin Costume Committee.

- Tiny Amigurumi Black Cat
This sweet little kitty pattern comes with a bonus: a super easy cell phone case. Because every cell phone should be Halloween-ized. Right?
- Fiberdoodle's The Pumpkin King
Nope, this isn't a pattern for the dapper skeleton we all know and love. This little guy is a true pumpkin. With green legs, and squiggly vine arms, of course.
- Pumpkin Head
Again, it's not what you think. This little fella works up quick and makes a great party favor or gift. His look of surprise makes his squee-worthy, too. :)
- Amigurumi Pumpkin
This little pumpkin is ribbed for your pleasure. (Ya, I went there.) Slightly off color puns aside, this little fella works up with little ridges, making it look more like a real pumpkin. A little one.
- Pumpkin Patch Pillow
It's a crochet pillow! With cutsey pumpkins on it! Woo-hoo!
- Pumpkin Toilet Paper Roll Cover
The title pretty much sums it up. Basically, it's a pumpkin for your bathroom. Because what's a bathroom without a pumpkin during Halloween? A sad bathroom, that's what.
