33 Fun Halloween Crochet Ideas and Patterns
I can’t help but smile when kiddos in costumes come to my door saying “Trick or Treat!” Little witches and zombies melt my heart and make me want to buy the full sized candy bars just to get more cuties to show up.
Whether it’s at my house with the boys, or over at a friend’s, I love a good Halloween themed party too. Headstones in the front yard, spiderwebs strewn about, and one of those candy dishes that slap your hand when you try to grab a candy bar. I love all kinds of spooky decorations!
I also really appreciate a hand made or crocheted costume. There’s something about the creativity and dedication that is put into a handmade costume that I adore.
Do you love spooky snacks? While I have a recipe for Feet-loaf (Halloween meatloaf) and a small round up of Friendly Ghosts Crafts and Snacks that will start your journey on a fantastic Halloween, I’m focusing more on decorations and costumes today.
If you are throwing a party this year, then reading further is a must. You’ll be all set with crochet Halloween decorations, crocheted Halloween party favors, and a few crochet Halloween costume patterns in case you need some inspiration.
1. Master Beanie crochet pattern This pattern is so versatile because it is the base to your creativity. You can add horns, faces, fake hair, eyes, there is no limit. Add some earflaps to add a touch of warmth or to make into legs, arms, or whatever else completes the character.
2. Unicorn Horn and Ears Add these to the above Master Beanie or to another item such as the Marvelous Moss Hooded Tunic or the Painted Canyon Cardigan. These work up quickly and make a great last minute costume idea for all ages.
3. Jack Sparrow Inspired Costume 5 years ago my son wanted to be Jack Sparrow, from Pirates of the Caribbean, so of course I had to oblige. This would work great for any pirate themed outfit or make it in a lot of colors for a 60’s themed hippie.
4. Tunisian Crochet Pumpkin While there are a lot of cute pumpkin patterns, there’s not a lot of Tunisian crochet ones. This is a beginner friendly pattern. Add some removeable felt Jack o’ Lantern eyes and a spooky mouth and it can double as a fall decoration after Halloween!!
5. The Joker Amigurumi Do you have a kiddo going as Batman this year? Well of course they need a little Joker to go with their outfit. This works great for them to play with in the mean time to keep up their Batman enthusiasm and to save the wear and tear on their costume if it was purchased too early. 🤣
