Winter is coming! But first comes Halloween!
Perfect opportunity to show some creativity and crochet a scaaaring deco! Or maybe scaring and sweet, or just sweet!
Little spiders for your mailbox will scare all your neighbours and contribute into the special atmoshere on the Halloween days!
The most important: the pattern is quick and easy and you don’t have to invest a lot of time into it!
Don’t forget to buy some sweets! I am sure, kids will be attracted by the little cute spiders!
You will need:
- 5.00 mm crochet hook
- black yarn matching the hook, white thiner yarn
- googly eyes
- scissors and a sewing needle
- ch – chain
- st – stitch
- sc – single crochet
- inc – 2 sc in the same st
- dec – 2 sc together
- X 6 – repeat 6 times
- at the end of every round total number of stitches is shown in brackets
Round 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6 )
Round 2: inc X 6 (12)
Round 3: (sc in next st, inc) X 6 (18)
Round 4-5: sc in all st (18)
At this point you can make a spider net: just insert the white yarn in the body through the magic ring, make a knot with the end of the black yarn inside the spider body (see pictures below).
Round 6: (sc in next st, dec) X 6 (12)
Stuff the body but not full (so there is some space left for inserting the legs).
Round 7: dec X 6 (6)
Close the body with a sewing needle.
Make a chain 25 ch and cut the ends as short as possible. This is one pair of legs. As you know, we need 8 legs so make 3 more pairs.
Insert the hook through the body and pull one of the chains through in the way that its two ends have the same length (as shown on the picture below). Do the same for other 3 chains.
Stick the eyes on the body and the spider is finished! It did’t take long, right? Now you can attach it to your mailbox or enterance. Or you can crochet more spiders and decorate a room! This will look scaring! Have fun on Halloween!
Think about crocheting a small basket for sweets? You can use this pattern for it, just take orange and/or black yarn instead of the packing twin!
