This has been this ghost’s first photo shoot ever.

That pretty much explains the expression on his face.

He is trying to be scary, he really is, but he ended up looking shy and stressed out.

Poor little guy!

“Scientifically” we could call him amigurumi crochet ghost.

Have you ever heard of amigurumi?

I hadn’t up until last week when I was searching for some hand-made dolls or creatures on the internet and I came across this art.

And I instantly fell in love with it.

Amigurumi (according to Wiki) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.

And in case you would like to make a little ghost by yourself I have put together this easy pattern!

To make eyes and mouth make chain of 4 stiches and work 1 sc in each chain stich …

… and that’s it!

Really easy!

I didn’t stuff this ghost because he didn’t need it.

But I have already bought lots of poly-fill for my future friends.

    I was looking over your pattern and notice that you didn’t give the type of yarn to use and crochet hook size that you used.

    This is adorable! I made him using a larger hook and put him over a smart candle so he lights up. Thanks for sharing :)
