Free Crochet Pattern Round Up – Halloween Costumes for Kids
Perhaps you’ve started thinking about holiday and Christmas gifts you’d like to make for your loved ones already. I’m a little behind on that, but ideas are rolling around in the old noggin.
Some can get really caught up in making Christmas gifts (understandably), but don’t don’t forget about Halloween! You can make your child’s costume entirely of crochet or just supplement on their existing costume wardrobe.
Halloween costumes for your little one(s) can be made inexpensively with existing yarn from your stash, or some economy yarn of your choice. I’ve tried to highlight a good mixture of free crochet patterns for boys and girls costumes, aged toddler and up. There are some versatile items here, and a little imagination can go a long way. Don’t forget to share your projects on Ravelry, designers LOVE seeing other peoples finished items! Most of all, have fun and happy hooking!
2. Batman Cape Crochet Pattern – Laura Michels
What little boy wouldn’t want to be Batman for Halloween! This batman cape crochet pattern will help you make that happen! Just add some black jeans and a black shirt (along with the batman mask in pattern #3), and you have a full Batman costume for a very low cost! Add this project to your Ravelry queue here.
4. Ninja Mask Crochet Pattern by Corina Gray
There are so many options for this one. You could use this ninja mask crochet pattern for a Teenage Ninja Mutant Ninja costume, add a cape and become a superhero, or use it for an actual ninja costume. If you have a nice, loose fitting black shirt and pants you could make one in black and be “The Man in Black” from “The Princess Bride”. Best movie ever, by the way. Not sure it translates to a child’s costume, but if a kid came to MY door knowingly dressed as “the man in black” aka “Wesley”on Halloween, I’d dump the entire bowl of candy in his trick-or-treat bag.

5. Ninja Accessories Crochet Pattern by Charlotte W
