I’m busy hooking up a sugar skull Rag Doll for my friend Sam @a_stitchin_time_and_space as she LOVES anything Halloween, and I thought that this weekend I would share some of the free crochet patterns I’ve found on the internet so you can all get busy before Halloween arrives too. I also wanted to share Autumn patterns in this post but found so many Halloween patterns that my Autumn themed blog post will have to go into a ‘Part 2’.
I’ve found 12 free crochet patterns that are cute, scary and easy to make.
1. Spin a Yarn Crochet’s latest design is perfect for Halloween. I tagged Sam and Claudia in this post on Instagram as I knew they’d love it. Sam mostly knits, so she asked me if I could make this for her. Of course I said yes… I’m hoping to finish it before Halloween for her.

2. How cute is this little Dracula? Jillian at Spin a Yarn Crochet makes fantastic rag doll patterns that are easy to make, and guaranteed to look perfect when done.

3. Another pattern by Spin a Yarn Crochet here. This little Frankenstein is even cuter than the Dracula. I have made several of Jillian’s patterns now and they are written very well and easy to follow. Check out her other patterns here…

4. I’ve been seeing crocheted pumpkins all over Instagram recently and they are so adorable and make great seasonal decorations. If I didn’t have so many WIPs I would love to make a few of these to put on the window sill at home. This pattern by the Caron Design Team for Yarnspirations seems to be very popular, and you can see why…

5. Here’s another popular pumpkin pattern. It looks as though the structure for this one is slightly different but just as cute. There is even a tutorial for making a needle-felt pumpkin…

6. How amazing is this spooky blanket? Perfect for wrapping the children up with a hot drink when they get back from trick or treating…

7 & 8. Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me has designed two brilliant wreaths, although I have to say I prefer the cat one 🙂

9. This blanket by Rilla Edwards is a great project if you’re taking part in Zeens & Rogers C2C CAL, and is not only perfect for Halloween, but for the whole of Autumn.

10. Look at the detail in this lacy shawl. I know a few people who would like this one…

11. This bowl is one of my favourite Halloween patterns, and if I had the time I would be making this one and filling it full or sweets for the trick or treaters. It is so cute!
Ghostly Candy Bowl by Michele Wilcox for Red Heart
12. Finally, I found this coaster pattern which would be great if you were throwing a Halloween themed party. I think they would look brilliant stringed up to make ghoulish bunting too…
