These cute Ghost Earrings are made using this free crochet pattern using basic crochet stitches and the worsted weight Dishie yarn by WeCrochet. The face can be drawn using fabric paint.
As Halloween is only a few days away, sometimes we just need a quick project to help us feel and celebrate Halloween without overdressing for the event. Not everyone likes to dress up but still wants to be included in the celebrations. For girls and women, earrings really help set the mood. As I have made Pumpkin Earrings before, I thought it would be perfect to also have some ghost earrings in my jewelry stash.
Earrings may sound like they are hard to make, but they really are not. You simply crochet something small, in this case, a ghost, and hook earrings to them so you can hang them onto your ears. I prefer stainless steel earrings as they are hypo-allergenic. Of course, it is important to note that you will need to crochet 2 of the same kind to make sure you have one for each ear. But luckily that doesn’t mean they have to look the same.
Crocheting a ghost
You can crochet a ghost flat and use them as earrings. I have done that for these flat pumpkin earrings. But you can also crochet them in 3D, which I prefer. I have these Pumpkin Earrings which are 3D. So I decided to make these Ghost earrings in 3D. I added a “boo” face using fabric paint to make the ghost “come alive”, but you can have 2 different types of faces for the ghost. Maybe one says “boo” and the other one just smiles :-).
These ghost earrings are made with worsted weight yarn called Dishie yarn by WeCrochet. It’s soft and so easy to use. I even made a review about the Dishie yarn as it is such an incredible yarn to work with.
So, let me now give you the supplies you need in order to crochet these easy Ghost earrings pattern.
This pattern is also available as an ad-free, printer-friendly pdf pattern that can be purchased at the links below for only a small fee.

Written Pattern for the Ghost Earrings:
First you will crochet 2 ghosts, then attach the earring pieces and finally add the faces using fabric paint.
Make 2 ghosts
Make a Magic Ring and add 8 sc’s to the ring, then close it. Use a stitch marker to mark when you move from one round to another.
R1 – 5: 1 sc in each st
R2: *[1 dc and 1 hdc] in the same st, 1 sc in the next st, repeat from * until the end of the round.
Use the invisible join technique here or watch the video above to finish the ghost without a slip stitch.
Weave in your ends.
Use the end from the magic ring to add the earring to the ghost (video above shows exactly how to).
Adding the face to the ghost earrings
Now you can add a face using fabric paint or a marker.
Let the paint dry completely before wearing or gifting the earrings.
Now simply wear your Ghost Earrings during Trick or Treating for Halloween or Thanksgiving decor during the Fall Season.
