5 of the SPOOKIEST crochet patterns

Spooky season is here! We’ve rounded up 5 of the scariest crochet patterns for you to try….

1. Cats, Bats and Ghosts Pack

This pattern pack uses the overlay mosaic crochet technique, a fun one to try if you're looking to expand your knowledge of crochet colourwork. The motifs are so cute and honestly would work in your home all year round. This pack comes with the charts you need for all three patterns, alongside instructions to make table runners, pillows, placemats, and wall hangings. This pattern pack is available to purchase through Ravelry.

2. Crochet Halloween Spooky Spider Garland

This free pattern makes a perfect Halloween party decoration. I LOVE the heart-shaped spiders and don’t get me started on the googly eyes. These fun touches make it more cute than terrifying but still on theme. You could have some fun experimenting with colour and customise the length of your garland.

3. Flying Witch & Haunted House Wall Hangings

These wall hangings are made using tapestry crochet, another great colourwork technique to add to your list. I love the silhouette idea and think these are the perfect haunted Halloween decorations. These pieces are really versatile - the creator suggests making wall hangings or potholders with them. I'm sure you could also experiment with making them into pillows or something too!

4. Zombie Boy, Little Mummy & Jack Skellington

I am so obsessed with Little Mummy, he's SO CUTE!! The little tufts of hair and wrap-around bandages create so much detail, that I'm dying to make my own Little Mummy. The creator has a whole range of Halloween-themed patterns available on Etsy, alongside a few free ones on Instagram too. This pack comes with three patterns, you'll have to check out @mumigurumi's Instagram or Etsy to see Jack Skellington - trust me it's worth it. This pattern pack can be purchased through Etsy.

5. Eyeball pattern

Finally, we've got the eyeball pattern, this free pattern is really easy to follow. They would make terrifying table decorations for your Halloween party or you could even make a bunch and hang them up in the window! I love that you can customise to your chosen eye colour. @twingurumi have a few frightening free patterns so be sure to check out their Instagram.

We have plenty of supplies available on the website for your crafty creations…

My yarn choice would be the West Yorkshire Spinners ColourLab DK Yarn. We offer this in a wide variety of spooky colours, and it's 100% British wool.

I love using the HiyaHiya Aluminium Crochet Hooks at the moment! They are super smooth, the yarn glides over the hook easily and they come at a really fair price. We stock them in sizes 2mm–10mm.

Or if you fancy trick or treating yourself to a nice new set this autumn I would recommend the Lykke Driftwood set. It comes with ten hooks in sizes 3.5mm-9mm and it gives very sleek and witchy vibes - perfect for this season.

If you try any of these patterns please be sure to tag us on Instagram @craftyllamauk or use the hashtag #craftingllamas so we can see it!

Happy knitting,
