Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting and knitting cute stuffed animals. These Halloween themed amigurumi are perfect as decorations or gifts. You could even hand them out as prizes or favors at a Halloween party. These patterns are all beginner friendly. If you enjoy making these amigurumi, then amigurumi crochet could be a great hobby for you. Crafting your own decorations and gifts brings a satisfaction and pride that simply buying something can’t. If you’re more experienced with amigurumi crochet, you can expand upon these patterns and create your own.
With this simple amigurumi pattern you have the choice of making a cute pumpkin or a spooky pumpkin. The basic shape is the same, but the embellishments you choose make all the difference. Personally I prefer the cute pumpkin, but you can choose whichever suits your tastes and decorating scheme. Or better yet, make one of each! This adorable pumpkin is a great reusable decoration, and it’s easy to crochet.
This scary skull is perfect decoration for a haunted house or Halloween party. You could even make it into an ornament for a spooky tree. Trees like this make great Halloween center pieces for a dinner or coffee table. They also make great porch decorations. This particular skull’s tiny rose-shaped eyes are an intricate detail that makes the design pop. These eyes aren’t necessary, however. This amigurumi pattern is another simple design ideal for beginners.
3. Candy Corn
This crochet candy corn is super cute and realistic. It’d look great as a table decoration next to a glass bowl of some real candy corn. You can also hand them out to trick-or-treaters or as Halloween party favors. This amigurumi pattern is super simple to crochet. You could gain a lot of fundamental crochet practice by making multiple candy corn amigurumis.
This charming amigurumi witch will take the a bit longer to make, but this beginner pattern is worth the effort. Wanda the Witch is a cute character with her pigtails, witch’s hat, and striped stockings. Wanda would make a great gift for kids, as they’ll love playing with her. She could also be a cute prop in your Halloween decorations.
This adorable amigurumi reminds me of Casper the Friendly Ghost. Easy to crochet, this miniature ghost will add cuteness to any space. This is another amigurumi that could be easily converted into an ornament for a Halloween themed tree. The possibilities for these amigurumi are endless, and you can use them to decorate however you wish.
