BOOtiful Ghost! A Halloween Craft Tutorial (Featured Guest Blogger)

1:00 AM

Hello! Thank you Everyday Mom Ideas for this great opportunity you've given me. I'm Marie from Marie's Cozy Corner. I started my blog two years ago to post about my crochet creations and from there it took off. I now post about crochet facts, how to's, crochet/cozy poems, recipes, guest blogger and giveaways and more.
 
Since Halloween is just around the corner I though I would create an exclusive FREE pattern just for you EMI readers, here it is..
BOOtiful Ghost Pattern
Material's needed:
White Yarn
Scissors
crochet hook size G or D
Fishing Line
buttons

Long Color piece of Yarn (does not matter what color just as long as its not white)
Difficulty: Advanced Beginner
Abbreviations:
ch = Chain
dc = double crochet
hdc = half double crochet
sc = single crochet
sc2tog = single crochet two together (you are going to being doing a sc but instead of pulling the yarn through both loops you are going to keep them on the hook and then take your hook through the next sc, wrap the yarn around the hook and pull through all three loops on your hook)
sk = skip
sl st = slip stitch
tc = treble crochet
Row 1: Magic Ring: ( wrap yarn around two fingers place hook underneath and pull yarn around ring, slip stitch) work 8 sc in to the ring, pull tight, Place color yarn between to mark the row.
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc around, 16 st (move color yarn, do not remove the yarn just wrap in over the next row)
Row 3: *1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next sc* , repeat from * to * around, 24 st.
Row 4: 1 sc in each st around, 24 st
Row 5: *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around, 36 st
Row 6-8: 1 sc in each sc around, 36 st
Row 9: * 1 sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog*, repeat from * to * around, 1 sc in last sc, 30 st
Row 10: 1 sc in each next sc around, 30 st












(this is what it should look like now)
 Row 11: *1 sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around 36 st
Row 12-13: 1 sc in each sc around, 36 st
Row 14: *1 sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from * to * around, 45 st
 Row 15: 1 sc in each sc around, 45 st
Row 16: *1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 Tc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc* repeat from * to * around.
Join with sl st and end. weave in end.
 

To hang this little guy just take a length of fishing line and tie it on to a button then pull the fishing line throw the top of the head of the ghost, and draw a face by using black fabric paint.



I had so much fun Making this little guy I know you will too.
 Thank you EMI.....

  1. THis is super cute and I'm enjoying making my first one this afternoon, but I did have a clarification...
    Row 11: *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around 36 st

    I am thinking it should say: *1 sc in next ^3^ sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around 36 st to get the 36 sts.

    Thanks for sharing!
