Halloween is just around the corner, and you don’t need to be super crafty to create really cute things to decorate for that time of the year. Here is a crochet tutorial to make some really cute little spiders to crawl all over your house! It’s very simple, very easy, and you can make a bunch of them in no time. The kids will love them!
What you will need:
– 4 medium worst yarn (color of your choice)
– 2.75mm crochet hook
– goggly eyes
– chenille stems
– fiberfill for stuffing
– yarn needle
– safety pin to mark end of each row
Rnd = rnd
sc = single crochet
inc = increase
dec = decrease
With yarn of your choice, 2 in chain
Rnd 1: 6 sc in second stitch from hook (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, inc] 6 times (18)
Rnd 4: [2 sc, inc] 6 times (24)
Rnd 5 to 7: sc in each st around (24)
Cut 4 pieces of chenille stem, about 5 inch long. Insert them in the stitches of the last row on each side, then fold them in two.
Resume with your rounds
Rnd 8: [2 sc, dec] 6 times (18)
Rnd 9: [1 sc, dec] 6 times (12)
Rnd 10: dec 6 times (6)
Fasten off, weave the rest of the thread into the remaining stitches to close the hole.
Glue the *goggly eyes on the face. Bend the legs to form the shape of the legs.
Your spider is done! You can have a lot of fun with this: play with different colors, add eyebrows, or a mouth. You can also Insert a piece of embroidery thread on top to hang you spiders.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Happy crocheting!
*Technically, goggly eyes are adhesive and should not need glue , but it doesn’t hold very well without extra glue.
