It's that time of year when we turn our hooks to the spooky side of things in anticipation of Halloween! Yesterday, we shared our favorite Halloween knitting patterns. Today, we're taking a look at what you can crochet for Halloween!
If you're looking for inspiration, you're bound to find it in this roundup of my favorite Halloween crochet patterns, ranging from costume pieces to everyday wear:

Halloween Headband Set
Halloween headbands are not just for little girls. This pattern includes instructions for the headband as well as a crocheted pumpkin and spider. This is one of those pieces that could spice up your plain everyday wear and make it a little more festive for this spooky holiday. A photo tutorial provides visual instructions and headbands come sized from baby to adult. And if you'd like to wear these year round, just skip the embellishments! Get the pattern.

Minnie Mouse Set
This is the most darling costume set for a baby there is! The pattern includes directions for the mouse hat with red and white polka dot Minnie bow, red and white Minnie skirt (which is actually a diaper cover) with tail, and dainty red booties. This set would make any little lady the star of the costume party. Get the pattern.

Exotic Bird Mardi Gras or Halloween Mask
This could quite possibly be the most beautiful Halloween or Mardi Gras mask I've ever seen. If you've never crocheted with thread, this may take some getting used to, but will be well worth the effort. This mask is made with #10 crochet thread (which can be approximated to lace weight yarn) and a 1.5mm steel crochet hook. Fabric stiffener is used to make the mask rigid and spray glitter is added for that Halloween sparkle. Add this lovely piece to any costume to make it at once feminine and beautiful. Get the pattern.

Skull Baby Slippers
If you're looking for a project that is a little less costume-y but still in the Halloween spirit, these baby slippers are just the thing. These little Mary Jane slippers are crocheted in worsted weight. A crocheted skull appliqué is added to the toe (imagine all the things you could add that skull to!) and it is finished with a sweet bow. Get the pattern.

Sweet Baby Corn Cape Set
What baby wouldn't want to be dressed up as a sweet little cob of corn? The husks create the cabe and a hat makes the ear. Popcorn stitch creates the corn texture on the hat. Crocheted in worsted wieght on a large hook, this pattern is quick to make for a last minute baby costume. Get the pattern.

Turbo Snail Hat
This snail eyed hat would be the perfect topper for a very interesting costume. Crocheted amigurumi-style, it is worked with bulky weight yarn on a smaller hook and stuffed with fiber fill (for more Halloween amigurumi fun, check out Amigurumi: Design Your Own Monster.) Careful pattern details make this piece very well thought out and professional looking. Get the pattern.
