Does this make you want to learn how to crochet? At first I learned out of necessity – a knitted baby blanket needed a crochet edge. After that I was driven to learn so I could create amigurumi toys & it’s been non-stop ever since!

  1. I know - right? It is all over if you ever start amigurumi!

    These are totally adorable. OMG I wanna make every one of them. But i got waylaid with a forest of crocheted amigurumi trees for my elves and I absolutely MUST get busy on the holiday gifts - more crochet!!!

    I guess you could say I am "hooked"! :-)

    Love love love your halloween tree ornaments to pieces!

    1. Thanks Pam! I made these for a store display & had to stop at these 8... I want to work on some Christmas ornaments next. My goal is to rope folks in with their cuteness so I can spread the crochet bug & teach some classes.

    1. Jane, it's not too tricky, just remembering to put a marker at the beginning of each row & keep moving it at the end of the rounds. It's kind of addictive & I'll bet you can even add them as cute zipper pulls to some of your bags!

    2. Thanks Edi! I made the ghost first & that's what kicked off the whole project.

  4. hey girl these are super cute. Wow - I can do straight stitches and barely that and can NOT read a pattern to save my life. But I really admire your talent here. Cool Halloween tree and what a sweet heirloom to leave your kids. I would fight over those cute ornaments.

    hope you had a great weekend

    1. Thanks Tina! I picked up the tree one year to use as a sales display for Halloween jewelry that I had made & it definitely came in handy now for these! (I hope one day my kids appreciate my crafting a little more than they do now.)
