Halloween Ghost Knitting Pattern

Halloween Ghost1


I have a new pattern to share with you today for a Halloween Ghost:) He’s a really fast knit, I’ve knitted him in the round with the Magic Loop technique and I used double knitting wool with size 4mm circular needles.

You could also add a loop to the top of his head so that he can hang from something or make a mobile.

Here’s the pattern:


A few grams of double knitting wool

4mm circular needles

Black fleece for eyes and mouth

Felting needle

Sewing needle

Small amount of stuffing


Kfb: knit into the front and back of a stitch to increase.


Cast on 5 stitches and join for knitting in the round

Round 1: Knit

Round 2: Kfb into each stitch, (10 stitches)

Round 3: Knit

Round 4: Kfb into each stitch, (20 stitches)

Rounds 5-14: Knit

Round 15: (Knit1, kfb) repeat the brackets across the round, (30 stitches)

Rounds 16-20: Knit

Cast off loosely.


Sew in all ends

Push a small amount of stuffing into the top of your ghost to give the head some shape.

Needle felt the eyes and mouth on with a felting needle.

Happy knitting!

    This is soo neat to see, great work,
    No offense, but I remember when I first started to knit at 8 years old, I made something like this but in brown yarn. My grandmother taught me to make a simple hat, and when I saw this ghost, that hat I made it looked like this. No offense, but that ghost brought back that memory.
    Great job, and Happy Halloween.
