Oh boy, we’re finally in New Orleans! Yesterday was a horrible travel day for us due to the weather, but my husband and I finally made it to New Orleans after a 16-hour travel day. Since we were stuck at the airport for such a long time, I’ve had the time to finish editing the PDF files for the last 3 patterns for the Halloween Collection and also, finish writing this post.
This Halloween amigurumi ghost ornament is pretty basic and almost everyone has their own version of a similar looking ghost, but I just wanted to write a pattern up for the one I created for my tree. My ghost looks like he’s trying to give you a spooky lil hug and I love it!
Free Halloween Ghost Amigurumi Ornament Crochet Pattern
I used the Knitpicks Shine Sport yarn for all of the ornaments in my Halloween collection because I love how smooth it crochets up. The yarn also looks slightly glossy, which makes the ornaments look a little bit more polished.
The difficulty level of this pattern is Easy and this pattern is written in US crochet terminology.

Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing.
- Pin the arms to the side of the body and sew in place. You can pin it so that the arms flop down, or you can do what I did and pin the arms with the tail ends facing up to make your ghost look like it’s trying to give you a hug.
- Cut a tiny oval from your sheet of black felt and glue onto the face between the eyes to create a mouth. Alternatively, you can also felt some wool roving directly onto the face. Feel free to play around with the mouth shape with embroidery too if you do not have any felt or wool roving on hand!
- If you would like to make your ghost into an ornament, string a piece of yarn through the top and tie off to close off the loop.
You have just finished your Ghost! I love this little ghost and how it looks like it’s trying to scare you and hug you at the same time.
