Shelf Sized Ghostmoji Free Pattern

Updated: Jun 22

I made this pattern in preparation for Halloween last year and I honestly couldn’t get enough, so I made a bunch more with different faces (which is how I came up with “ghostmoji”) and then I made the keychain sized ghostmojis! You can find that free pattern here →

These are a perfect spoopy Halloween decoration! It works up so quickly and takes up hardly any yarn, I don’t think anyone could blame you if you made a million!! I love all the possible different expressions you can give these little guys! If you made a loop for the top of it it could make a cute little hanging or flying ghost too! I cant wait to see how you all decide to customize your ghostmojis! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @cutiepie_crochet so I don’t miss it!

Now, let’s jump into the pattern!
