Halloween Spider Pattern

Happy Halloween!!

Earlier this week, I shared with you my pattern for a little Halloween ghost and today, after finally getting round to writing it up, I am sharing my pattern for a little Halloween spider! It's been a bit of a crazy week with the children being off school for the half term holidays, pumpkin carving and keeping them busy!

It has taken me a while to get some decent photos of the spider, by the time I remembered to do them, the nights were getting darker much earlier!

You will need:
Black yarn
Fibrefill
3.5mm hook
Small amount of white yarn for eyes

Eyes (make 2)

Using white, ch2, 6sc in 2nd ch from hook, ss, fastening off leaving a long enough chain to attach to spider. 

With a small piece of black, sew a little pupil on to the eye.

Body

Row 1: Ch2, 6sc in 2nd ch from hook, do not ss (6)

Row 2: *2sc in each st* (12)

Row 3: *1sc, 2sc in next st* (18)

Row 4: *1st in next 2 st, 2sc in next st* (24)

Row 5: *1st in next 3 st, 2sc in next st* (30)

Row 6: *1st in next 4 st, 2sc in next st* (36)

Row 7: *1st in next 5 st, 2sc in next st* (42)

Row 8: *1st in next 6 st, 2sc in next 2st* (48)

Row 9-13: *sc in each st* (48)

Row 14: *1st in next 6st, sc2tog in next 2st* (42)

Before you decrease any more stitches, position and sew in the eyes.

Row 15: *1st in next 5 st, sc2tog in next 2st* (36)

Row 16: *1st in next 4 st, sc2tog in next 2st* (30)

Row 17: *1st in next 3 st, sc2tog in next 2st* (24)

Row 18: *1st in next 2 st, sc2tog in next 2st* (18)

Row 19: *1st in next 1 st, sc2tog in next 2st* (12)

Stuff the spider firmly

Row 20: *sc2tog in next 2st* (6)

Legs (make 8)

Make a chain of 16. In 2nd ch from hook, slipstitch. Repeat to end, fasten off leaving a long enough tail to attach to spider.

Sew 4 legs either side of the body.

Hanging Loop

With black yarn (or white if you would prefer it to look more like a web), attach the yarn to the top of the spider and make a chain. This can be as long as you want him to hang down. Slipstitch in the top of the spider and sew in ends.

And there you have it! One little Halloween spider all ready!

Happy crocheting!
