Large Witch Free Crochet Pattern

Large Witch Free Crochet Pattern

The Halloween celebrations continue with this spookily cute free witch crochet pattern. This friendly witch has been practicing all her spells ready for Halloween. Her favourite spell, so far, is the never-ending bucket of candy. An ideal weekend project, she is easy-to-make and will add Halloween cuteness to the day. She’ll be a hit with any child who needs a new best friend to go trick or treating with during the day and a soft and squishy doll to snuggle at night. She is suitable both as a toy or to add some delightfulness to your Halloween decoration.

Hello Halloween (part two)!

Here at My Crochet Wish, I am all about helping people create adorable crochet gifts for the special child in their life. Children are such a blessing and I love seeing the delight on their face when they receive precious handmade gifts of love. Handmade gifts can provide a lifetime of treasured memories, and I am still grateful for the many items that my mum made for me when I was young, that are now stored safely up in my attic, as they have become too fragile for the wear and tear of daily life.

One of the reasons I started this website, was as a result of crocheting for my two girls. I saw the fun they were having with the toys and other items I was making them and want to share that joy with others. Most of my designs are based on items created for them, and they both help me with my business, not just as the models that you see in the pictures on this site, but as creative idea-contributors as well. I love their imagination and have all of their suggestions jotted down in my little notebook of future-project ideas.

In my last blog post, I shared with you our recent family meeting where I asked the girls what they wanted as a Halloween crochet gift. My eldest asked for a large version of the Halloween Mummy I released last year, which I shared with you as a free pattern last month. And my youngest asked for… a witch! Just not a scary one (we recently watch the classic Wizard of Oz with the amazing Judy Garland and the witch in the film was a bit too much for my youngest).

So, how to make an ever-so-adorable and not-so-scary witch. Well, first of all I had to make her in the Cubigurumi style. Just look at those cute little eyes and button nose – how can any one be afraid of such a sweet, little face? To make her look witchy I gave her the classic witch-green skin and a witch’s hat and broomstick. However, as it will be played with by children, I made the broomstick both easy-to-make and child-friendly (no small pieces that will break or come loose).

Both my children were very pleased and happy and have enjoyed playing with their new toys. You might have noticed that I have pictures of two different witch dolls… well, I couldn’t just make one. There would have been endless arguments!

Large Witch is part of my Cubigurumi range, a series of cute, cube-tastic toys to delight, inspire and entertain the special child in your life . You can find the whole range of huggable, quirky characters on the My Crochet Wish website, such as this sweet, little Snowman. They are just so quick and easy-to-make. Both of my children love playing their cube-based games on their tablets, and love that they have cube shaped toys as well!

Cubigurumi: cube-shaped love!

Looking to make adorable, handmade gifts to spoil the children with, but struggle to find time during the week? The Cubigurumi range was designed for the busy crafter. Each design is simple to make and adorable in appearance. You make fast progress in small blocks of time and end up with a gift-worthy finished creation.

Each Cubigurumi starts life as a series of simple, flat rectangles, before they are then sewn together to create the individual cube body parts. This makes each part quick and straightforward to work on, without having to worry about shaping the doll as you crochet. For the witch, the dress is crocheted onto the body cube, before the individual cubes are sewn together. Add the witchy accessories and then you are finished. An adorable, squishy friend to play with and comfort the special child in your life.

It is an ideal project for beginner crocheters, who have practiced the basics and are ready for their next creation.

The free crochet pattern for the Halloween Witch doll is shared, below. However, this pattern is also available as a Premium Pattern!

Premium Patterns are beautifully formatted, ad-free, printable PDF files; they also contain features that are not available in the free pattern version, such as:

  • Extra photos and guidance to help you with the little details.
  • Instructions and photos for left-handed and right-handed people, where needed, so there is no need to adapt the pattern before you start.
  • Relevant step-by-step photo tutorials for the skills you need to complete the project, making it easy every step of the way. This witch pattern includes the step-by-step photo tutorials on how start with a magic circle and how to sew together a My Crochet Wish amigurumi cube.
  • Instructions using US and UK crochet terms, so you can enjoy the pattern no matter which crochet language you use.

Large Witch Free Crochet Pattern

This is an easy pattern suitable for those that have practised the basics of crochet and are ready for their next project. There is no set gauge for this pattern, however the finished size should be approximately 9 inches high (23 cm), excluding the hat. Here is what you will need:

Materials

  • Any DK or light weight yarn (other yarn types or thickness can be used – this will result in a different size). I used Stylecraft Special DK in the following colours:
    • Lincoln 35g (113 yards / 104 metres) – yarn A
    • Mocha 25g (81 yards / 74 metres) – yarn B
    • Vintage Peach 50g (161 yards / 148 metres) – yarn C
    • Grey 25g (81 yards / 74 metres) – yarn D
    • Black 5g (17 yards / 15 metres) – yarn E
    • Stone 5g (17 yards / 15 metres) – yarn F
    • Dark Brown 5g (17 yards / 15 metres) – yarn G
  • Polyester stuffing
  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Two safety eyes 12mm in diameter
  • Sewing pins (optional)

Disclaimer: there is sewing involved in this project. In my experience, there are three types of people in the crochet community; those that hate sewing and actively avoid it, those that are indifferent and will sew if the pattern calls for it, and those that love sewing and do it as separate craft. If you are in the first group and hate sewing with a passion, then my Cubigurumi patterns probably aren’t for you.

Notes

  • Are you new to crochet? Here is a handy post explaining all the abbreviations.
  • I have used US crochet stitch terms for this post. Check out this US to UK stitch conversion guide if you prefer to work in UK stitches.
  • All pieces, apart from the hair bun, hat, and broomstick are worked in rows, turning after each row.
  • The hair bun, hat and broomstick are worked in continuous (spiral) rounds with right side facing at all times.
  • Unless specified, all stitches should be worked through both loops on the top of the stitch.
  • Keep your stitches tight to produce a solid looking fabric. You don’t want gaps between your stitches.
  • The bobble stitch is worked on the ‘wrong’ side of the fabric, making the bobble ‘pop’ out on the opposite side of the fabric (unless otherwise specified).
  • To change colour, work last stitch of old colour to last yarn over. Yarn over with new colour and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Continue with new colour. Fasten off the non-working yarn and weave the end in. Do not carry the non-working yarn, unless otherwise stated.
  • Make sure all colour changes occur on the same side of the crochet piece.
  • Stuff carefully to maintain the square shape of the amigurumi toy. You can stuff for a more firmer cuddle, however the cubes will start to take a more rounded shape.
  • When you add the stuffing, you do not want to overstuff to the point that the stuffing is visible.

The Premium Pattern contains close up photos of the individual parts, prior to assembly.
