Crafty Sassy: Top 10 Free Crochet Halloween Stuffies

Hey Dearies! Since we are in the last week of October and Halloween is just days away, I figured I would share some of these super cute stuffies that you can make for this spooky holiday!

Note: I don’t own any of these patterns, all rights go to their original creators. I will be proving the link to the original patterns. Make sure that if you create any of these, please don’t claim the patterns as your own, these creators work hard to create these patterns!

Now, some of these patterns might be a little hard for beginners, but we love to challenge our skills! These are also perfect gifts to that person who are big fans of the Halloween season.

1. Cute Baby Ghost

This is super cute! I also love the little spider that they added on the side for the ghost! If you are wondering how their cheeks get pink, any lite blush or eyeshadow can create that effect.

2. Little Bat

This is another adorable pattern, I just love these cute baby bats!

3. Little Pumpkins

Last year, I made a bigger version of these mini pumpkins, although, I didn’t have enough time to make it more adorable. I’m tempted to make a mini one!

4. Sharlotte The Spider

If you don’t like real spiders, I think you’ll be on board with Sharlotte! This reminds me of Charlotte’s Web book I read back in elementary school.

5. Frankenstein

This little guy is freaking cute! These are perfect for the little ones to cuddle with at night. This creator has a few of these little guys and the next one is on this list!

6. Classic Vampire

I’m a big vampire fan and the reason why I said this was a ‘classic vampire’, because, well, it is. That and it doesn’t sparkle in the sunlight, that’s for sure. However, putting a little bit of highlight on it could make this little monster shine in the daylight.

7. Candy Corn Cuddler

This is something I would definitely create and put on my couch, however, my two-year-old would most likely take it whenever I wanted to cuddle with it. I can’t blame her either, that cuddler is too cute!

8. Zombie Bear

This bear is cute and spooky, just look at him. Now, this stuffy is one of those fun one that you can use your scrap yarn for. If you are a big Halloween fan, this might be something that you want to make for your spooky collection.

9. Oogie Boogie
https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/oogie-boogie

2019-10-29 (6).png

If you already know who this guy is, then you must either have seen The Nightmare Before Christmas or are a HUGE fan of the movie. I couldn’t forget this guy, that’s for sure, but the best part, he’s a free pattern. And if you check out the creator, you’ll also find that they have created Zero and Jack, as well.

10. Hocus Pocus Witches
http://thecrochetqueendesigns.com/free-pattern-red-haired-witch/

2019-10-29 (7).png

Well, I had to save the best for last! Hocus Pocus is one of those movies that you have to see every year for Halloween and when I saw this on Pinterest, I was so excited! More excited that the pattern was free!

Which ones were your favorites? Which one would you love to create for yourself? Let me know in the comments!

Crafty Sassy: Top 10 Free Crochet Costumes for Newborns

Hey Dearies! So, I wanted to make this post last year, but I changed my mind. Even tho my daughter will be turning two at the end of this month, I wanted to share some links to some super amazing patterns for newborns!

I didn’t get into crocheting until after my daughter was born and really missed out on making her one of these costumes to do a photoshoot for her. However, just because I missed out, I still want to keep in mind, just in case I ever get asked to make them in the future.

When it comes to looking for free patterns, for this type of project, it is a little bit of slim picking, but if you don’t mind paying for the pattern itself, you can find more Disney characters. (Which I will be making a post with links to those very soon!)

Even if you don’t know how to make them, always see if your friendly crocheters wouldn’t mind creating them for you. I love to getting sent a project to do, such as this, it gives me a challenge and something new to try out!

Disclaimer: None of the patterns shown are mine, all rights go out to their creators. I have left links to where the free patterns come from. Make sure that if you chose to make these, or have them made, that you give credit where credit is due to the original creator.

Crafty Sassy: Crochet Halloween Placemat (Easy)

Hey Dearies! Sorry, this is a day late, but with my college midterms coming up, it’s been pretty busy, but without further ado, here is the pattern for this super cute placemat!

20191009_130841.jpg

If you want to create the placemat with the coaster, here is the link for the coaster that I posted last week: https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/10/01/crafty-sassy-crochet-halloween-coaster-easy/

Note: It has been brought to my attention that I need to clarify the yarn, especially with placemat, potholders, or oven mitts. This pattern, with the yarn chosen, is for DECORATION and shouldn’t have anything hot on top of it.

Acritic yarn MELTS! If you want to use this as an everyday placemat, make sure you use cotton! It doesn’t have to be the same brand that I use, as long as it is the same size.

Let’s talk about what you will need:

  • 5.5mm hook
  • Medium Yarn (In black and orange)
    • I am using Red Heart Super Saver in Pumpkin and I Love This Yarn in Black.
    • Please make sure you see my note if you are making this placemat for everyday use!
  • Sewing needle

Placemat

With orange or black yarn, chain 23.

Round 1: Double crochet in the 4th chain from the hook. Double crochet in each of the next 18 chains. Make 5 double crochets in the last chain. Working on the opposite side in the unused loops of the beginning chain, double crochet in each of the next 19 loops. Make 6 double crochets in the next chain. Join in at the beginning of the chain 3. (50 dc)

Round 2: Chain 3. Double crochet in each of the next 19 double crochets. Make 2 double crochets in each of the next 5 double crochet. Double crochet in each of the next 20 double crochet. Make 2 double crochets in each of the next 5 double crochets. Join in at the beginning of the chain 3. (60 dc)

Round 3: Chain 3. Double crochet in each of the next 19 double crochet. Make 2 double crochets in the next 10 double crochets. Double crochet in each of next 20 double crochets. Make 2 double crochets in the next 10 double crochets. Join in at the beginning of the chain 3. (80 dc)

Round 4: Chain 3. Double crochet in each of the next 22 double crochets. Make 2 double crochets in each of the next 14 double crochets. Double crochet in each of the next 26 double crochets. Make 2 double crochets in each of the next 14 double crochets. Double crochet in each of the next 3 stitches. Join in at the beginning of the chain 3.  (108 dc)

Round 5: Chain 3. Double crochet in each double crochet. Join in at the beginning of the chain 3.

Round 6-8: Repeat round 5.

Round 9: Chain 3. Double crochet in the next 23 double crochets. Make 2 double crochets in the next 26 double crochets. Double crochet in each of the next 28 double crochets. Make 2 double crochets in the next 26 double crochets. Double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets. Join in at the beginning of the chain 3. (160 dc)

You can fasten off, but if you want a nice border, switch to your other color.

Border

Round 1: Chain 1. Single crochet in the same chain as joining. Working in the back loops, single crochet in each remaining double crochet around. Join with the first single crochet.

Round 2: *Skip the next single crochet, make 5 double crochets in the next stitch, skip the next single crochet, slip stitch into the next stitch.* Repeat around. Slip stitch into the first stitch. Fasten off.

There you have it! A perfect placemat for Halloween! The best part about this is that you can mix and match different colors for whatever theme you have in your kitchen! I actually make one with white and a lite purple border for my Mother’s Day giveaway!

Crafty Sassy: Crochet Halloween Coaster (Easy)

Hey Dearies! I know it has been quite a while since I’ve posted for Crafty Sassy, but because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, not to mention my birthday is in October, I had to share this super cute pattern with you all!

So, this is part of a set, but the placemat will come out next week. This pattern set was part of my Mother’s Day giveaway, while I used a light purple and white. However, this is Halloween, so the colors will be black and orange.

Here is the link for the matching placemat that goes with this coaster: https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/10/09/crafty-sassy-crochet-halloween-placemat-easy/

20191001_160907.jpg

As much as I love working with black, it’s very difficult to see the stitches, but here are a few tips to help you out.

Tips for working with black yarn:

  1. If you are lucky enough to be a crochet hook collector, you might have heard of the ones that light up, and yes they do work great, especially when you are working with darker colored yarn.
  2. If you don’t have those light-up hooks hanging around, a lamp or overhead lights will be your best friend. I always use an overhead light for my life and when working with darker colors.
  3. If you don’t have any of the 2 above, sunlight or daylight works well!

Let’s talk about what you will need:

  • Medium Size Yarn
    • I’ll be using Pumpkin, in Red Heart Super Saver, and Black, in I Love This Yarn.
  • 5.5mm hook
  • Sewing needle

Take the color you would like to use for the middle. I’ll be using black as my middle.

Chain 6.

Round 1: Chain 3 (counts as double crochet on thisd rounds and the others). 9 Double crochets in the ring. Join at the top of your chain 3. (10 dc)

Round 2: Chain 3. Double crochet in the same chain as joining. 2 Double crochets in each stitch. Join at the top of your chain 3. (20 dc)

Round 3: Chain 3. Double crochet in the same stitch as joining. 2 Double crochets in each stitch. Join at the top of your chain 3. (40 dc)

You can stop here if you want, but if you want to make it bigger, do Round 4. If you want to stop here, skip to the border step. 

Round 4: Chain 3. Double crochet in the same stitch as joining. *Double crochet in the next stitch, make 2 double crochets in the next stitch.* Join at the top of chain 3.

Border

Grab the second color and chain 1 with it.

Round 1:  Single crochet in that same stitch you joined in the last round and all around. Slip stitch into the first single crochet.

Round 2: Chain 1. Skip the next stitch. *Make 5 double crochets in the next stitch. Skip the next stitch. Slip stitch in the next stitch.* Repeat until you reach the end and slip stitch.

Fasten off and sew in any loose ends.

There you have it! Make sure to check in next Tuesday for the placemat that goes with this coaster.
