Thank you for the wonder feedback on my little pumpkin pattern. I’ve received the nicest comments and have been flattered by how many people have linked back to it.
When I sat down a few weeks ago to make some little crochet balls, I didn’t intend to whip up a bunch of Halloween-inspired projects, but you go where the inspiration takes you.
This spooky little spider is fast and easy to make. You still have plenty of time to crochet one (or a few) before October 31st. Have fun!
Spider Legs (make eight)
These are just like the pumpkin stem, only longer.
R1: chain 12
R2: sc in second bump from hook, sc in next ten bumps*
Crochet Rows 1-11 of Tiny Crochet Ball with black yarn.
Before stuffing, attach or embroider eyes. Then attach legs, four on each side. Bury ends inside body.
Stuff and finish off with Row 12.
*Go into the bumps on the back of the chain, not the stitches on the front of the chain.
