This ghost is so cute and fun to make! To start, we first make his whispy part of the head. We then work to the head, then the body. The whisp, head, and body are all one continuous piece.

After that, we make his arms, tail, and his pumpkin!

Ghost

We’re starting to work the tip of the ghost’s head.
After this we will work the ghost head, which will also work into the body. They are all one continuous piece.

Ghost Head

In White

Round 1: 6 Sc in Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: Repeat *Inc in the next st, Sc in the next st* all around (9)
Round 3: *Sc* all around (9)
Round 4: *Inc, Sc 2* all around (12)
Round 5: *Sc* all around (12)
In the next round we will do a short row. A short row is where we crochet about half the round, turn our work, crochet over the stitches we just made. This will make a “indented” look for the ghost’s whisp at the head.
Round 6: Sc next 6 st (Pic 1). Turn (Pic 2), Sc next 6 (Pic 3 over the stitches we just made), Turn (Pic 4), now we’re working back into the round (Pic 5). Repeat *Inc, Sc 3* 3 times (Pic 6) (15)

In the next round we will start to make the bottom of the ghost. Before we do that, if you want your ghost to sit flat for decoration, cut out a circular piece of cardboard. Place it into the bottom of the ghost now. Then, continue on to the next round!

  1. hello, in making the head, I am confused by rounds 19-23. Round 18 leaves us at 42 stitches, and the next round says incr sc 6 which would leave us with 48 stitches, however the pattern says 36 and then I think all of the numbers after that until the head is done is off. Am I missing something? Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi Christina, thank you so much for your comment! I looked at that section and the patterns stitch count was wrong from those rounds you mentioned, so I went ahead and fixed that area so now it should be back on track! I’m so sorry about that 🙁 I hope it makes much more sense now! Please feel free to let me know if you come across anything else you have questions with 🙂 I’m always happy to help in any way I can ❤️ I hope I can see your ghost when you’re done!

      1. Here’s my ghost!

        1. Hi Christina! Wow you have done such a cute job with your ghost! He looks so adorable, especially next to the other pumpkins 🙂 Very very cute, I bet he will bring a smile to anybody’s face! Thank you so much for sharing your adorable ghost, I love it!!!❤️

  2. HI thank you so much for posting this pattern. I’m currently stuck in bed waiting for my COVID-19 results feeling rough. This pattern helped keep my mind off things as you can imagine I’m very worried. I’m planning on giving the beautiful witch lady a go next. Here’s a picture of my little ghost (without a face for the moment) 🙂

    1. Hi Michelle,

      Thank you so much for sharing your ghost! Wow he looks awesome!! Even without a face, I love it 🙂 I’m so sorry to hear about waiting for your results, I pray that you will be okay and feel better soon 🙁 The best thing for now is to try and keep your mind off of it like you said, take it easy and relax ❤️ I know when I get really worried about things I can make myself even more sick 🙁 Get some fun, relaxing crocheting in Michelle, I’m so excited to see when you make the witch! Please let me know if you have any questions when making her, I’m here to help!! ❤️ Love your ghost sooo much 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for this pattern, it’s the most well written I’ve done in a long time, got this little guy done in a couple of days.
    I didn’t have any eyes so embroidered them and I love him.

  4. Such a cute ghost and a really lovely, well explained pattern to follow – thank you!
    I didn’t have any toy eyes or beads so just sewed some eyes on 👻

    1. Hi Abi, aw my goodness your ghost is super adorable! Those eyes are so well done, I really love how you made your own twist with the eyes 🙂 Next year I am definitely going to try doing the eyes that way! Thank you so very much for your kind words, it means so much that you really liked the pattern! Your ghost and the decorations around him are so awesome 😍

  5. Thank you so much for the free patterns! I have vision problems and it’s not easy to find a great pattern all in one piece ☹️ so happy to see the ghost 😀 I’m going to crochet one this week. And I will make one for each of my great granddaughters too. I can’t wait to try the other Halloween things too. Thanks again and I love your site!

    1. Hi Pixie! Thank you so extremely much for being so kind, I truly appreciate it so much! I’m sorry to hear about your vision problems. I hadn’t considered how finding patterns with little sewing would be easier since you don’t have to “see” as much. It makes total sense! Now that I know, I’m going to try and make more of an effort to try making more “no-sew” patterns 🙂

      Let me know how this ghost goes for you! If by chance you need any help, please let me know. I’m so excited for your great granddaughters to get their own ghost – that’s so cute! Maybe you can add a bow around the neck of the ghost in their favorite colors? Just a thought 😉

      Thanks so much again for your kindness, Pixie!

    1. Awww I love Boo! That’s such a clever name, I wish I had thought of that LOL! I love that it looks like you used bigger eyes on yours 😍 It gives such a “kawaii” look, especially with the blush! Thank you so much for sharing a picture. I’m sure Boo goes great with all of your other Fall makes!

You did such a great job making him 😍 Thank you so much for sharing a picture with me! I hope you have a fantastic Halloween!
