Now before you head off to make as many of these Halloween crochet patterns as possible, check out this list of FAQs. These are questions that are the most commonly asked when it comes to making Halloween crochet patterns. You might find something super useful!

Halloween Crochet Patterns FAQs

How do I crochet a magic circle?

Some of the Halloween crochet patterns on this list are amigurumi projects. Amigurumi projects often have you start by crocheting in the round. One way to start a project in the round is by creating a magic circle.

If you’ve never tried this, I absolutely recommend you give it a try. You can find a full video tutorial here.

However, please know that a magic circle isn’t the only way to start a project in the round. That video I linked to also includes to alternatives to the magic circle. If you can’t get the hang of the magic circle right away, try one of those methods instead.

How do you crochet Halloween bunting?

Halloween bunting is pretty much the same as any bunting! It all depends on the pattern you’re working from. Most bunting patterns use simple stitches, but often a lot of color changes.

If you need help making seamless color changes, follow this tutorial.

If you’re looking for a crochet Halloween bunting pattern, try the Candy Corn bunting listed under Halloween decorations for the house section above (it’s number 7!)

There are also many ways to crochet halloween bunting without a pattern. Simply make your favorite Halloween decoration, make a bunch of small ones, attach them to a string, and hang them up!

You can do this with the mini pumpkin earrings or any of the coaster patterns you found in this post!

How do you crochet a Halloween pumpkin?

If you want to know how to crochet a Halloween pumpkin, you’re in luck! There are sooo many crochet pumpkin patterns out there it’s insane! And they are generally pretty easy to make.

You can find two crocheted Halloween pumpkin patterns in this post. They are numbers 8 and 14 under Halloween decorations for the house.

Besides those, most pumpkin patterns only require crocheting a rectangle and then sewing them together to form a pumpkin shape.

If you really like pumpkins, try making them with different stitches! It’s a great way to enhance your crochet skills.

If you haven’t already, scroll up to the Halloween crochet decorations section and you will find a few! Or you can do a quick search for Halloween crochet pumpkin on Google and you will find all kinds.

How do you crochet triangle eyes?

You probably won’t believe how easy this is, but it’s very simple.

To crochet triangle eyes, you will chain the length of the bottom part of the triangle. Then, using any of the basic stitches, you will crochet in each stitch across. In every other row you will decrease at each end.

If you want to see this in action, I have a full video and picture tutorial for this Pumpkin Candy Bag and all of his friends.

Did you enjoy this long list of free crochet Halloween patterns?! I hope you have so much fun making a cute Halloween decoration or two this Halloween season.
