Need some last-minute Halloween decorations? Or just want to crochet something spooky? We’ve got two free Halloween crochet patterns for you!
Halloween means scary movies, trick-or-treating and, of course spooky crochet patterns! Do you want to add the finishing touches to your decorations with some Halloween crochet projects, or just fancy making something a little scary? Then these two free Halloween crochet patterns should be just what you’re looking for — unless you’re not a fan of spiders!
Please note: these free patterns use UK crochet terminology.
Free crochet pattern: Spider
Few things are creepier than spiders! With this pattern, you can turn some Hoooked Eucalyps (or similar yarn, of course) into an eight-legged monster in no time. We used Eucalyps Neroni for the spider’s body and legs and Eucalyps Giada for the eyes.
The spider’s body
Make a pom pom. We used a 45mm pom pom maker.
The spider’s legs (make 6)
(Yes, six. We know spiders are supposed to have eight, but we thought the spider looked nicer with six. Feel free to make more!)
Take two strands of yarn and ch10. Crochet 9dc, starting in the second chain from the needle. Bind off, leaving a long thread to attach the leg to the pom pom.
The spider’s eyes (make 2)
Take four strands of yarn and tie a double knot in the middle. Attach the eyes to the pom pom.
Free crochet pattern: Spider's Web
Want to give your spider somewhere spooky to live? This free crochet spider web pattern works up nice and fast – a perfect project for while you’re watching a horror movie on Netflix!
Chain 6. Use a slip stitch to join into a ring.
1: In the ring: ch3 (this is your first treble crochet), ch2, *1tr, ch2* 7x, crochet a last treble on the first 3 chains.
2: *ch4, 1tr on the tr from the previous round* until end.
3: *ch6 1tr on the tr from the previous round* until end.
4: *ch9, 1dtr on the tr from the previous round* until end.
5: *ch11, 1dtr on the dtr from the previous round* until end.
6: *ch13, 1 extended dtr on the dtr from the previous round* until end.
7: *ch15, 1 extended dtr on the extended dtr from the previous round* until end. Bind off, and leave a long thread. You can use this to hang up your spider’s web!
