The 30 Spookiest Halloween Crochet Patterns

Adriana Maronese  - September 19, 2021

The spookiest time of the year is approaching soon and we must get ready for it! Just to be clear, I’m referring to Halloween and not to Tax Day 😛

Halloween is a holiday that originated in the Celtic tradition 2,000 years ago when people lit bonfires and wore costumes to protect themselves against ghosts. The festivity has evolved throughout the years and it’s now widely celebrated around the world. Costumes, pumpkin carving, trick-or-treating are some of the most popular traditions that are associated with this day.

But what would Halloween be without decorations? Some of the most wonderful house ornaments include garlands, pumpkins, and lots of spooky creatures. And for craft makers, like you and me, this is one of the most fun times of the year!

Here are the 30 spookiest crochet projects for you to try. Disclaimer: Not for the faint-hearted!

01

Cat in Pumpkin

It is said that when a black cat crosses your path, it will bring bad luck. But there’s just no way that can be true for this adorable little kitty (I mean, look at those eyes!). This playful little creature loves playing hide-and-seek and might be involved in occasional mischiefs, but that’s all!
