Boo! A Crochet Ghost!

Friday, October 23, 2015



Hello friends!  With Halloween fast approaching I decided to make a crochet ghost.  I made this in no time and I'd love to share with you how I made it.

This easy craft took me about 2 hours tops to make.



CROCHET GHOST

What you will need to make the ghost:

Yarn:  White Red Heart Yarn - for ghost
           Black Red Heart Yarn - for eyes, to tie around ghost, & to hang
Crochet Hook:  US Hook size I
Cotton Fill

ch = chain
hdc = half double crochet

Directions:

Chain 22
hdc in second ch from hook.  Continue with hdc all the way to end of row.  When you get to the end of row ch 2 and turn.  Continue this way until you have 14 rows done.  Weave in both ends of yarn.  This will now look like a square shape.  Take a small amount of cotton filling and form into a ball.  Place this in middle of the crocheted piece.  Take a long piece of cut black yarn and tie a bow around the neck of the ghost.  Sew in two eyes with black yarn and add a long piece of yarn at the top of ghost and then tie a knot at the end to hang up.

Done.

  16. The ghost is adorable Julie. You have a great talent and crocheting is such a lost art. I wish I had learned from my grandmother. She crocheted the most beautiful things. Glad you can do crochet and can make such cute things.
    Happy week end.
