Crochet Pattern: Spider

By Candace – 2 Comments
Is Halloween complete without a creepy, crawly spider? Many of us, myself included, could do without them, and that’s what makes them perfect creepy decorations. Luckily, this spider is jonly crocheted and completely harmless. For extra “ew” factor, suspend it from a thread or add lots of tiny googly eyes.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 2 1/2″ ( cm) long, 2″ (5 cm) wide (not including legs)

Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 20 yards)
Crochet Hook H (5.0 mm)
Crochet Hook E (3.5 mm)
crochet yarn size 4

First 2 rounds measure 1″ (2.5 cm)

Crochet Pattern: Spider

Round 1: Make an adjustable ring, ch 1, 6 sc in ring, sl st in beg ch-1 to join: 6 sc
Round 2: ch 1, 2 sc in each sc around, sl st in beg ch-1: 12 sc
Round 3: ch 2, (hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st) around: 18 hdc
Row 4 (Head): ch 2, hdc in first hdc, dc in next hdc, hdc in next hdc: 3 sts
Finish off.

Legs (Make eight):
Row 1: join yarn to side of spider where you want the leg to be, ch 12, finish off.

    I love it! My 3 yr old grandson has developed a fascination with spiders lately. Much to the dismay of his Mom and older brother! This will go great on a hat I am crocheting him!

    Thank you so much!
