Cutest Halloween Ghost Toy Knitting Patterns
Calling all Halloween lovers! You can work on something cute and spooky if you’re ready for some fun! This list of 6 Free Halloween Ghost Toy Knitting Patterns is going to help you explore Halloween with a true, notable amigurumi vibe.
First on this list of cohost toys is a plush and huggable one.
This one has a wide body and a tongue sticking out of its smile. With large eyes and stick-out arms, this is wonderful for little ones that want to have a true cute ghost.
Similar to this one is the ghost with a twirly tail and a small, subtle smile. With its sweet smile, this is a wonderful knit ghost toy that is going to be so cute that you won’t be able to help to smile at it.
There is another one like that with large arms and a round mouth that will take on a true ghoul-like persona.
This is great for hanging out, having on couches and other places, or for little ones to hug and love.
Another knit ghost toy is going to be a rounded ghost with a flat bottom. There are several versions of these that you can put everywhere you can think of.
From the tiny ones with their amigurumi faces to the cutesy ones with the wobbly smiles, to the ghosts with just the eyes — they’re all great!
For a Halloween that you won’t forget, these wonderful knit ghost pattern options are going to help you explore cute Halloween styles in a way that you’ve never tried before.

Potomac Czech Glass O Beads
Potomac Beads recently let me choose a selection of free beads to use for some designs. For this pattern, I chose Czech glass O beads , 2 x 4mm, in the color “Jet Purple Iris Gold”. The product number is 76819.
I chose this color because it has an overall copper feel, which is perfect for fall, but with twinkles of golds, purples, and greens mixed in. They’re even more vibrant in person, and feel slightly iridescent when they catch the light.
Shape and hole size
The beads themselves are similar to seed beads, but with half the thickness. The best way to describe them is like tiny, shiny, donuts, with nice big holes in the middle. I love the way they nestle between the stitches on the bind off edge.
For this project, my yarn was on the thinner end of the medium (#4 – worsted/aran weight) spectrum. I tested the beads with a thicker, aran weight yarn as well and was able to get them on without too much trouble. I wouldn’t recommend using them on anything thicker than that though.
All the other beads Potomac sent me are really beautiful as well, and you’ll be seeing them in projects soon!
Beading with Floss Threaders
For this pattern, you will be adding the beads one at a time while knitting, rather than stringing them on the yarn ahead of time. Typically, this is done by pulling the stitch through the bead with a crochet hook. Check out this knitting with beads tutorial for a closer look.
With larger yarns, the hook that’s small enough to go through the bead is often too small to easily grasp the yarn. This is particularly true with slippery or splitty yarns. So I prefer to use a floss threader instead! Floss threaders are meant for threading floss through dental work, but they make excellent and versatile beading needles too. We explored beading with floss threaders in Lunchtime Live episode 58 .
Add this to your Ravelry queue
- Yarn: 55 yds worsted weight yarn
- Needles: Size 4 / 3.5 mm needles or size needed to match gauge, for knitting in the round. Use a set of double pointed needles, or a circular needle long enough for the magic loop method.
- Tapestry Needle
- 4 stitch markers – preferably with 1 different from the others to mark end of round.
- Small amount of PolyFil fiberfill
- 121 Potomac Beads Czech Glass O Beads (2x4mm), shown in item #76819 – Jet Purple Iris Gold.
- Crochet hook that can fit through the beads, or see this video about using a floss threader instead !
Intermediate: Kfb and yo increases, k2tog decreases, beaded bind off.
About 5 inches tall, not counting hanging loop.
25 sts x 36 rnds = 4 inches in stockinette
Exact gauge isn’t critical but will affect the yardage needed. Stitches should be tight enough so that stuffing doesn’t show.
k = knit k2tog = knit 2 together kfb = knit front and back p = purl pm = place marker rnd = round sm = slip marker st(s) = stich(es) yo = yarn over
- Knit Front and Back (kfb)
- Knit 2 Together (k2tog)
- Knitting With Beads using a Crochet Hook
- Floss Threader Beading Needle – Lunchtime Live
Cast on 8 sts, leaving an 18-inch starting tail.
Any lower profile cast on will work – I used a long tail cast on for mine.
Distribute stitches evenly on double-pointed needles or magic loop, to knit in the round.
Rnd 1: Kfb around (16 sts)
All even rnds in head: K around
Rnd 3: [K1, kfb] around. (24 sts)
Rnd 5: [K2, kfb] around. (32 sts)
Rnd 7: [K3, kfb] around. (40 sts)
Use starting tail to sew top of head closed. Weave tail in enough to secure but do not cut it. Leave it on the right side of the work, sticking out the top of the head.
The pictures show the tail on the wrong side of the work, but it should actually be on the right side
Rnds 8-12: K around.
Rnd 13: [K3, k2tog] around. (32 sts)
Rnd 15: [K2, k2tog] around. (24 sts)
Rnd 17: [K1, k2tog] around. (16 sts)
Rnd 19: K2tog around. (8 sts)
Rnd 20: K around.
Rnd 21: Kfb around. (16 sts)
Rnd 22: K around.
Rnd 23: [K1, yo, k2, yo, k1, pm] 4 times. (24 sts, 4 markers)
Use a unique marker for the end of the round. If a marker placement would fall at the end of one of your needles or at your magic loop, you can skip placing the marker, and instead count the end of the needle or magic loop as a marker. I did this for the first few rounds, and then added the other 2 markers when it got bigger.
Rnd 24: K around, slipping markers as you come to them.
Rnd 25: [K1, yo, k to 1 st before marker, yo, k1, sm] 4 times. (32 sts)
Rnds 26-47: Repeat rnds 24-25 16 times. (120 sts)
Rnd 48: K around, slipping markers as you come to them.
Rnd 49: P around, removing markers as you come to them.
Rnd 50: (Yo, k2tog) around.
Rnd 51: P around.
Beaded Bind Off
Knit first stitch.
*Remove the new stitch from your needle and use a crochet hook or floss threader to pull the loop through a bead.
K1, then pass the beaded stitch over the stitch you just knit.
Repeat from * until all stitches are bound off.
Cut yarn and fasten off.
To close the gap at the end of the round, place a bead on the tail and then sew the tail into the first stitch of the round.
Weave in the end.
With starting tail on the outside (top) of the head, stuff head firmly with poly fil.
Sew starting tail down through the head and out through the opening
Use this tail to sew the bottom of the head closed.
Weave in all ends.
Cut a 12-inch length of yarn, fold it in half to form a loop and tie a knot about 1.5 inches from the fold.
Weave each tail separately into the top of the head to secure the loop to the ghost.
Alternately, you can use a piece of ribbon, wire, or clear fishing line to create a hanging loop.
Wash and hang to dry/block.
I hope you enjoyed this Halloween ghost ornament pattern. A downloadable pdf of this pattern is available on Ravelry for a small fee. The fee for the pdf format is to offset the advertising revenue lost when you print or download the pattern rather than viewing it online.

Hi Marlybird Thank you for sharing all the Fall and Halloween patterns. Some of them are really cute but I do have a request. Is there some way for you to designate whether a pattern is KNIT or CROCHET? Maybe just a big K or C in front of the pattern or something like that? Sometimes it will say “knit pumpkin” or “crochet pumpkin hat”, but if it just says “pumpkin hat “we have to click it to see it that is what we would like. This would be a most helpful service if somehow you could do it. I enjoy all your patterns and make-a-longs and thank you for your your fun videos. Thank you Rita
