I love this time of year and all the spooky season things are in full swing! Now, I’m a fall-themed girly myself, but I do love the cute little ghosts too!
I made one of these as a keychain for a boo-basket gift for my husband a few days ago and now I’m stocking up on them for the market days next weekend, as well as for my Etsy shop! However, I made them as little stuffies and not keychains because the kids are so obsessed with them as toys and they make the perfect little coffee table decorations!
You could definitely add a keychain hook to the top of these or a long piece of yarn to hang around your rear-view mirror in your car if you’d like, the options are endless for these little cuties.
I use safety eyes for my plushy, but if you would like to crochet little circles for the eyes or glue on felt patches- that would work too! Infact, I recommend crocheting on the eyes if a baby will be receiving the plushies!
If you like to slip stitch and chain 1 to move to new row, you may do that. However, I do not for this pattern and I continue to next row without slip stitching.
You will need:
Worsted weight yarn in white
#4.5 crochet hook
Safety eyes, felt or black yarn for eyes!
Small amount of poly-fill for stuffing
