Happy Halloween from Crochet Quickies and to celebrate here’s a cute little no-sew amigurumi ghost pattern! This spooky miniature is crocheted in the round entirely in one piece, so there’s no sewing involved after the crocheting is finished.
I was feeling very Halloweeny one day and I designed this Ghost in worsted weight, using a bright white. When I was finished I thought, “Well, you don’t get much cuter than that.” But later on that night I was wondering what the little guy would look like made with a bulkier yarn. I didn’t have any in bright white, but I had picked up a couple of skeins of Isaac Mizrahi Super Bulky in Carlyle which is a varigated white/gray with a silver streak. I had planned on making a hat, but I’m glad I used it for this instead. I think it looks amazing, giving the Ghost a dirtier, more aged look, but still stylish. Ha!
