9th Day Of Halloween: Crochet Ghost Light Pattern

Pin me! 📌

Welcome to day 9 of our spooky crochet journey, today we’ll be making a crochet ghost light. What is a crochet ghost light you may ask? It’s a wee crochet ghost that you put over a LED tealight, not a real one because fire bad. It will give an eerie glow to any area in your home that you think might be in need of one.

Boo, I say! Let’s get started.

  • White or off white yarn worsted weight
    • I used Premier Just Yarn worsted in Mushroom
  • G/4.mm hook
  • Snips
  • Yarn or tapestry
  • Black Felt

Abbreviations

  • Sc = Single crochet
  • St = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • <> = total number of stitches in round

Cut a 4 inch tail, tie off your tail, and weave in your ends to secure them.

What do do with Your ghost

And that’s it! You can use some black felt to cut out a little mouth and some eyes. Or you can leave it to be a faceless non corporal being. Just place it over a LED candle to make it have an unearthly glow.

Here’s a cool tip: If you color the bulb with a permanent marker then you can turn the light different colors. Like ectoplasm green or my favorite, purple.

Make this pattern and then tag me on Instagram so I can see what you made! I’ll share your post in my story!
