Crocheting hasn’t become a completely lost artform yet, and a lot of people have taken up the hobby of knitting amigurumi animals. It’s a lot of fun to do, and the designs are often very cute. Another benefit of making amigurumi animals is that they make the perfect gifts. They can also make the perfect decorations, though, so that’s why this article is going to focus on Halloween amigurumi patterns.
There are many websites on the internet that feature amigurumi patterns. Sometimes they are available for free and other times they are available for sale. Don’t buy an amigurumi pattern unless you are past the beginner’s stages because you might buy something too advanced and become discouraged with the whole craft.
Halloween Ghost Amigurumi Pattern
This amigurumi ghost is for the advanced beginner. The best part about this pattern besides the fact that it is so cute, is that it is free and available at http://www.suncatchereyes.net/Ghost%20Pattern.html. Of course, the amigurumi ghost is white in color and in the picture it has blue eyes, but you can make them any color you want. I found this amigurumi Halloween pattern by looking on one of the best amigurumi pattern websites Freeamigurumipatterns.blogspot.com.
Little Dracula Halloween Amigurumi
This little Dracula amigurumi sits at about 3.5 inches when it is finished. Instead of being scared, children will probably adore this Dracula. He has a black and red outfit on with a black cape. This amigurumi also has a white face and fangs. Another thing I really like about this pattern is that you also get the pattern for his tower which is grey with a brown door and black windows. This Halloween amigurumi pattern costs $4.50, but is tailored towards the beginner. You can find it and buy it at http://www.etsy.com/listing/57974167/little-dracula-halloween-amigurumi.
Set of Three Halloween Amigurumi Patterns
These amigurumi Halloween patterns look like they would be my favorites for several reasons. Although they are for sale, they only cost $5.50 for all three, and the finished product actually looks scary, instead of just cute like some of the other patterns. Available in the set is a black cat, a white ghost which is screaming (I like this one better than the other ghost because of its expression and because it has arms), and an ugly little witch with green skin, brown hair, and a black hat. These Halloween amigurumi patterns are great for beginners and can be purchased at http://planetjune.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5&products_id=49.
