Free Halloween Knitting Patterns

I love decorating my home for holidays, and Halloween is no exception. There are so many Halloween themed knitting patterns that are perfect for decorating your home for Halloween.

This lens will feature a number of spooky knitting patterns that you can use to convert your home into a haunted house. Whether you want to deck yourself in knit orange and black apparel, or you want to create puppets or stuffed toys, you will find inspiration for you Halloween knitting projects in this lens.

Ghost Knitting Patterns - My top 3

I have a whole lens dedicated to Free Ghost Knitting Patterns, but I wanted to share my favorite patterns that I uncovered in my search.

  • My Basil is haunted by a little Ghost!
    My #1 pattern from the Ghost Knitting Patterns lens.
  • Boo! Toe-Up Socks
    The cables create little ghosts traveling on these socks, making it one of the top three Ghost knitting patterns. You will need to create a free Ravelry.com account to download this free pattern
  • "Boo" Baby Bib Knitting Pattern
    This ghost chart on the baby bib could be adapted for a number of different projects. (Unfortunately you would need to convert written instructions into a chart, or you could do that by looking at the photo.)

Eyeball Knitting Patterns

Jack-o-Lantern Knitting Patterns - My top 3

I have a whole lens dedicated to free Jack-o-Lantern knitting patterns but I wanted to share my favorite patterns that I uncovered in my search.

  • Pumpkin Cozy
    Avoid having a rotting Jack-o-Lantern by covering your pumpkin with a knit cozy instead of carving it!
  • Russet the Pumpkin
    This is the pumpkin shown on the right. You will need to create a free ravelry account to download this free pattern.
  • Pumpkin Bag (aka Jack-O-Lantern)
    "Knit a Jack-o-Lantern bag for your kid this Halloween!" - Kimberly Chapman (designer)

Black Cat Knitting Patterns

Now you could turn almost any cat knitting pattern into a black cat for Halloween, so I'm focusing on knitting patterns that have black cats in mind.

Free Skull Knitting Patterns - My top 3

I have a whole lens dedicated to free skull knitting patterns but I wanted to share my favorite patterns that I uncovered in my search.

  • Jackyll & Hide
    This hat has two forms: 1) you can roll the brim down over your face (making a face mask and revealing a skull like mask) or 2) a simple, white large brimmed hat. AMAZING!
  • Skull Stockings Knitting Pattern
    The skull pattern is developed by knit lace stitches.
  • Chauncey
    A toy skull knitting pattern, it would be great perched on your shelf!

What spooky items would you most want to knit?
