Small No-Sew Crochet Ghost Free Pattern

Small Crochet Ghost Keychain Pattern

Meet our cute little crochet ghost! With Halloween coming up, we are really in the mood to crochet some fun Halloween amigurumi patterns! So I decided to crochet a ghost amigurumi that can work up super fast. The best part? This ghost is a no-sew amigurumi pattern – which essentially means all of the fun with none of the tedium!

A cute little crochet ghost keychain could be a really fun gift to hand out to kids this year! Okay, maybe if you get a lot of trick-or-treaters then that’s not possible but you could crochet this ghost for Halloween class gifts, party favors, or just something quick and festive for the kids in your life.

About this Small Amigurumi Ghost Pattern

This small amigurumi ghost works up really quickly – in like 15 minutes! Since this ghost is crocheted all in one piece, there’s no sewing to slow you down.

This pattern is really easy to make (like really easy!) – it just uses basic stitches. But, despite that, I love how cute it is!

I crocheted my ghost using DK yarn and it came to about 2.5 inches in height. However, you can use any yarn that you like! Want something a little bigger? Some of our pattern testers crocheted their ghosts in chunky yarn for a cute and squishy ghost that’s larger (nearly double the size of ours!). We even had a pattern tester use glow in the dark yarn for their ghost and it turned out fantastic!

So have fun with this pattern – because why not? It works up so fast you can crochet as many little ghosts as you like!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I crochet a large ghost?

If you would like to increase the size of your ghost, you simply need to crochet with thicker yarn and a larger hook. Some of our pattern testers used chunky yarn for this and it turned out so squishy and adorable! If you don’t have thicker yarn on hand, you can always double the yarn that you are using and use a bigger hook.

Can a beginner crochet this ghost?

Yes, absolutely! This pattern is really easy peasy for beginners! It’s a great practice project because it’s really quick to make. And the construction is really easy.

How do I attach the keychain to this amigurumi ghost?

If you would like to turn this ghost into a crochet keychain, you simply need to get a keychain ring. Use a length of white yarn to sew the ring onto the top of your ghost’s head. And voila! The perfect keychain for the spooky season!

How do I crochet a glow in the dark ghost?
