Halloween Amigurumi Roundup and Pattern Testing



I recently went up to North Carolina and Virginia to visit friends and family.  As I was leaving to come back, it hit me that I wanted to try out some more Halloween amigurumi home decoration patterns.  So, I found many, but just tried out a few.  I haven't been able to finish all of them in time for this post, but I will share the ones I have already finished this week and the others next week.

I also decided to do a roundup this week to highlight some of the really awesome free patterns available online.  I already did a fall pumpkins amigurumi roundup, so this one will be more of the Halloween ghoul and witch variety.


15 Free Halloween Amigurumi Patterns

1. Baby Ghosts Ornament by Josephine Wu

I thought this picture was super cute; however, I had a little bit more trouble following this pattern, and my ghost isn't quite so perfect. But I think it still turned out well. Here's how mine turned out:




2. Halloween Candy Corn Creatures by Josephine Wu

Here are the results of my attempts at this pattern.  FYI, this one was very easy to follow and they are really cute.

I am currently in the process of finishing this one.  I started out joining the rounds as directed by the pattern, but I found it to be too slow...and I don't think I was doing it quite right, so I changed to continuous rounds.  I just need to sew all the parts together, and then I will be able to share my attempt at this pattern.

10. Amy the Little Witch by Renske de Busschere

This witch is super cute.  I'm almost done trying out this pattern.  I think I just have 1 arm and the monster left to complete it.  The pattern was easy to follow, but make sure that you notice where the 2nd purple line should be as it is not marked in the pattern.
