This free crochet pattern is for a fun spider tissue box cover. This pattern is made using only single crochet stitches as well as Brava yarn from WeCrochet, as well as pipe cleaners for the spider legs.

Although Halloween might not be my favorite time of the year, it is part of the Fall Craft Season. Besides I come from an area in Germany where we celebrate witches every year. Furthermore, I love crocheting tissue box covers. I still need to create an ebook for it. Is that something you want to see? I think I have more than two hands full of patterns now around this subject. More to come for sure!

Now, are you ready to make this cute Spider Tissue Box Cover that “sprays” spider web as tissue from the back?

Crochet Tissue Box Cover Pattern

My first tissue box cover pattern was an Elephant one and it went viral because it was simply too cute not to make it, right?

Well, since then my email inbox has been filled with tissue box cover requests that I can’t keep up with. But no worries, I’ll try to get to them all if I can.

They are actually not as hard as they seem. I guess you can compare them with amigurumi patterns, but instead of stuffing them with polyfill (unless mentioned that it’s needed), it’s stuffed with a tissue box that can be changed out when the box runs out of tissues.

Free Written Pattern for the Spider Tissue Box Cover

You’ll first crochet a square (where the head is sewn to) and then crochet around 3 sides to make the body of the spider, finishing it by sewing a square with a hole (for the tissues) to the back. Then you’ll crochet the head, add the eyes, stuff it and sew it to the body. Finally, you’ll add the pipe cleaner legs and sew the spider web to the back for a final touch.

Crochet Spider Body

Ch 16, start from the 2nd ch from the hook

R1 – 19: 1 sc in each ch, turn (15 sts)

Now, in a u-shape, crochet around the square on 3 sides only, evenly such that you have 53 sts per row

R1-21: 1sc in each st, turn (53 sts)

Now you’ll crochet the square piece with the hole to pull the tissues.

Ch 16, start from the 2nd ch from the hook

R1 – 7: 1 sc in each ch, turn (15 sts)

R8-12: 1 sc in the next 5 sts, turn (5 sts), cut yarn at the end

Now re-attach the yarn, 5 stitches skipped when you turned in R8, and repeat R8-R12 on the other side.

R13: 1 sc in the next 5 sts, 5 fsc, now continue to crochet on the other side, 1 sc in the next 5 sts, turn

R14-19: 1 sc in each ch, turn (15 sts)

Now sew this piece to the larger piece of the body on 3 sides, opposite of the first square piece you made, making sure the rows are in the same direction. I used the mattress stitch to sew the 2 pieces together but feel free to use a different stitch.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Crochet the Spider Head

You’ll be crocheting in continuous rounds, so be sure to use a stitch marker.

R1: make a magic ring or an alternative magic ring and add 7 sc

R2: 1 sc inc in each st

R3: *1 sc in the next st, 1 sc inc, repeat from *

R4: *1 sc in the next 2 sts, 1 sc inc, repeat from *

R5: *1 sc in the next 3 sts, 1 sc inc, repeat from *

R5: *1 sc in the next 4 sts, 1 sc inc, repeat from *

R6-15: 1 sc in each st

R16: *1 sc in the next 4 sts, 1 sc dec (use the invisible sc dec if possible), repeat from *

R17: *1 sc in the next 3 sts, 1 sc dec, repeat from *

R18: *1 sc in the next 2 sts, 1 sc dec, repeat from *

Crochet Spider Head

Now add the eyes to the front, where the first few rows are, and stuff the head with polyfill. Next, sew the head to the front of the body.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Add the spider legs

Twist the neon green and black pipe cleaners together, and cut 3 of them in half. The first, uncut, one pull through the back of the head and adjust the pipe cleaner to make it look like 2 legs next to the head. Then attach the 6 left-over shorter legs, 3 on each side, to the body. To attach the legs, I bend the ends a bit once I pushed them through a space in the crochet body.

Sew the Spiderweb to the Spider Body

Use white yarn and a tapestry needle and first sew the yarn from the edge to the middle point. Do this 4 times. Then make the typical spider web connection points using your white yarn, to make it look like this:

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Now add your tissue box from the bottom and pull your tissues out from the back and enjoy your new creation.
