Ghost Amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern


Ghost Amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern

I couldn’t let October pass by without releasing at least one frightful little pattern! This year I made perhaps the most terrifying ghost you have ever seen! 😉

The Details

As usual, this pattern is made in the same style as all my patterns; separate pieces worked in flat rows and then joined together to give them that unique 2-D look. This amigurumi has just 2 separate pieces.

Let’s get started! (Or Pin/Shop for later!)

In the next row we will join the tail to the body by crocheting across both pieces. Position the tail panel so that it is on the left side of the body panel and so that the yarn tail from where you tied off is on the right.

Move on to final assembly below!


Step 1: Face

Insert the eyes about 3-4 rows above the top of the arms and about 8 stitches apart. Do not fasten them yet!

Next, position the cheeks so that the eyes are overlapping them slightly. Stitch in place and then fasten the eyes.

Finally, using black crochet thread, stitch on a mouth.

Step 2: Body

Here are the pieces you should now have at this step.


Make sure the front is facing you as you crochet around the outside.

Starting on the left side, at the top, begin attaching the panels together by single crocheting around the outside of the panels.

(Sc, ch 2, sc) into the stitch at the tip of the tail.

Start stuffing the tail now and continue topping up stuffing after every four to five stitches.

Continue crocheting up the other side until you reach the top of the head. Finish stuffing.

When you are satisfied with the stuffing, crochet across the top of the head and close with a slst to first st. Tie off. With your tapestry needle, poke the yarn tail back inside the piece.
