It’s the Spooky Season!

Spooky season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate Halloween than by crocheting your very own adorable amigurumi ghosts?

This cute ghost crochet pattern is perfect whether you’re a crochet enthusiast or a newbie to the craft.

A cute free crochet pattern for a little ghost, that is not only the perfect project for celebrating Halloween but also an ideal choice for a delightful crafting experience.

Plus, the best part? It’s a no-sew pattern, making it quick, easy, and suitable for all projects.

In this step by step tutorial, I will walk you through the steps to create your charming mini ghost amigurumi using worsted weight yarn (I used Parfait Chunky). Let’s get started!

Materials You’ll Need

Before we dive into crocheting, gather your materials. You’ll need:

  • Chunky yarn or worsted weight yarn in white (or any yarn color you choose)
  • Crochet hook suitable for your yarn (see the pattern below for my recommended yarn and hook size)
  • Stuffing material – you can use recycled stuffing from an old pillow too.
  • Yarn needle – if you use a chunky yarn, choose a wide eye darning needle.
  • Safety eyes or embroidery thread for the ghost’s eyes and mouth.

Getting Started: Crocheting Basics

If you’re new to crocheting, don’t worry; this pattern is a beginner-friendly crochet ghost pattern! Start with a slip knot and create a magic ring to build your ghost from the ground up.

You can also work a chain of 2 and work into the first chain, but a magic circle works much better.

I will  guide you through the essential stitches, such as single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), and slip stitch (sl st), half double crochet (hdc), and single crochet 2 together (sc2tog) needed to complete your project.

The Easy Crochet Ghost Pattern

Follow  these step-by-step instructions to crochet your adorable ghost. I’ve included detailed photos to ensure you’re on the right track. 

No-Sew Assembly

The great thing about this pattern is that there’s no sewing required! Learn how to seamlessly crochet from head to foot, and add the finishing touches, like safety eyes or embroidered features.

Personalize Your Ghost

You have creative freedom when it comes to making your ghost unique. Customize the size, expression, and even accessories like tiny hats or scarves.

These mini ghosts are perfect for baby nurseries, Halloween decorations, or thoughtful gifts.  You can also add cute details like rosy cheeks.

This little guy is a perfect base to build from.  I used white yarn, but one of my testers went a little wild and used green!  I thought it was super cute.

A Spooktacular Creation

In no time, you’ll have your very own little ghost amigurumi, thanks to this easy crochet ghost pattern.

Start off with a Magic Ring – or – chain 2 and work into the first chain.

2:  Sc 2 in each stitch around. (12 sc)

Adding the Eyes

I placed my eyes around 3 rows up from the bottom and 4 stitches in from the ear. (see images below)

You can add the stuffing now – or – wait until you finish crocheting R17.  I added mine now, but it is completely up to you.
