10 Free Ghost Crochet Patterns
While these patterns all lean toward the cute side, there’s still plenty of variety here. I’ve included patterns for earrings, a Halloween bag, a ghost applique, a C2C blanket square, and amigurumi ghosts of different sizes and shapes. Which one will you make first?
These friendly ghosts are perfect for the spooky season and many simply use worsted weight yarn to crochet mini ghost amigurumi, tiny ghosts, and squares to make blankets. Although most of these patterns use white yarn to crochet a free crochet ghost pattern, you may also need some black crochet thread or black yarn for the mouth as well as learn how to insert safety eyes.
Cute Ghost Crochet Earrings
Sometimes you may wish to celebrate Halloween without overdressing for the event. Not everyone likes to dress up in costume but still wants to be included in the celebrations. These adorable little ghost earrings really help set the mood.
You can make these quick and easy crochet ghost earrings in less than an hour. So even if you have a Halloween party tonight, you still have time to make a unique and festive accessory!
You can find the CROCHET GHOST EARRINGS PATTERN free on my website.
Quick and Easy No-Sew Ghost
Here’s an adorable, friendly ghost for those who prefer their Halloween decorations to be cute rather than scary. It’s worked blanket yarn, which makes a large and cuddly ghost stuffie with a hat on top of the head.
This project is perfect for amigurumi beginners since it uses basic stitches like magic ring, single crochet stitches (sc), double crochet stitches, and huge safety eyes. It also includes a full video tutorial to walk you through the project step-by-step.

Boop the Cute Little Crochet Ghost
This cute crochet ghost plushie starts with a sphere. Then, you work shell stitches along the bottom to create a ruffle reminiscent of a sheet or a classic ghost silhouette.
This beginner-friendly pattern uses mostly white yarn, a magic circle (mr), single crochet stitches, and continuous rounds! If you want to make it even easier, just leave off the arms. My favorite part is always to finish stuffing the ghost as it’s so easy.

Glenda Ghost Bag
This spooky-cute Halloween crochet bag features tapestry crochet ghost motifs with two different facial expressions.
It might look complicated but this bag pattern is pretty straightforward. Remember to use a stitch marker and bobbins to help you along with this project. It’s 13 squares you seam with a tapestry needle and then add the straps to. The designer has included lots of detailed photos of the bag to help you with assembly.
Chibi Crochet Ghosts
This classic witch hat is beginner-friendly and works up relatively quickly. The pattern includes instructions for a traditional black hat with a purple band and a yellow buckle.
These darling little ghosts come in two different sizes and with two different faces! Of course, you can change them up depending on what you’re going for. Remember, patterns like this tiny ghost can be made bigger with heavier yarn and a bigger hook size.
You make the ghosts in two pieces, with a rounded body and a flat bottom, so they will stand up nicely in your Halloween display.

Ghost Halloween C2C Square
You can display this adorable 25″ x 25″ crocheted ghost square on its own, use it as a part Halloween pillow or throw, or add it to a larger afghan to make a unique Halloween blanket!
This pattern uses the C2C technique, which is fun and easy to master. It’s a great smaller project to try out corner-to-corner crochet for the first time. In the end, you’ll have a fun Halloween decoration that your family will look forward to using every year! So grab your 4 or 5 mm hook and start learning how to inc and dec with this fun diagonal crochet technique.

No-Sew Amigurumi Ghost
If you’re looking for a taller amigurumi ghost to add to your Halloween decor, look no further! This crochet ghost plushie makes a great Halloween crochet project and gift for kids, too.
This friendly ghost is crocheted in basically one piece, with no sewing required, but using the invisible decrease makes the stuffing not show. You may use back loops (blo) to create the bottom wavy ghost “dress”, but that is still very easy. And it looks like you won’t need any sk sts, hdc or dc stitches for this pattern. Top it off with a purple witch hat for an extra spooky touch.

I love appliques because you can make a basic beanie, bag, or blanket and embellish it for whatever occasion you like. This cute little ghost applique with its mischievous grin will add Halloween spirit wherever you need it.
The possibilities are endless. You can also make it into earrings, a keychain, or a hanging ornament. Just make sure to keep your gauge and stitch count the same so they will all have the same size. And the best part is after finishing the last sts, you can use the yarn tail to hang them up.

This free ghost crochet pattern is such a fun and quick project! Use this sweet little ghost for keychains, garlands, car charms, and or slip them into Halloween treat bags.
This tiny crochet ghost is a beginner-level pattern starting from the first st and includes lots of helpful photos to guide you through the pattern so even the next st, stitches made in the front loops (flo), inc, sl st or single crochet increases are made easy for a beginner. And remember brackets and parentheses are helpful tools to make reading a pattern easier. So even a beginner can crochet this cute tiny ghost.
