Grab your yarn and hooks and yarn — it’s Halloween time. Whether you’re a crochet pro or just getting started, these projects are sure to fulfill your spookiest holiday desires.
1. Halloween Appliqués
Use your scrap yarn to stitch the cutest little Halloween appliqués. Once you crochet ’em, you can turn them into a larger project (like a Halloween hat ), or use them for festive decor.
2. Frankenstein Amigurumi
Making this spook-tacular doll is easy — just crochet in the round and shape him with increases and decreases. Once you’ve formed his body and sewn on the arms, use embroidery floss and safety eyes to bring him (back) to life.
3. Kids Candy Corn Beanie
Crocheted with three strands of yarn held together, this candy corn cap is just as cute as it is sweet — perfect for keeping any lil’ trick-or-treater’s head cozy.
