Here’s my super quick and easy pattern for this cute little Frankenstein head Halloween ornament:
Finished size: approximately 1.5″ x 1.5″ x 2″
worsted weight yarn in green, black, purple, and gray
crochet hooks in sizes G and F
9 mm black safety eyes
Note: I used cotton yarn in all colors except gray which is acrylic.
With green, ch 9
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in ea ch to end, ch 1, turn (8 sts)
Row 2: sc in ea st, ch 1, turn (8 sts)
Rows 3-6: repeat row 2
Row 7: sc in ea st, ch 1, do not turn (8 sts)
(You will now be working in squared rounds and joining each round.)
Rnd 1: sc between ea row down left side, sc in ea st across bottom, sc between ea row up right side, sc in ea st across top, join with sl st to first sc, ch 1 (28 sts) (make sure you only put one stitch in each corner)
Rnd 2: sc in ea st around, join to first sc, ch 1 (28 sts)
Rnds 3-6: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 7: sc in ea st around, change to black when you join with sl st to first sc by pulling black through both green loops during the sl st, ch 1
Rnd 8: sc in next 6 sts, (2 sc into next st of row below current row being worked, sc in next 2 sc) 3 times, sc in last 12 sts, join, ch 1
Rnd 9: sc in next 6 sts, (1 dec, sc in next 2 sts) 3 times, sc in last 12 sts, join, ch 1
Rnd 10: sc in ea st around, join, ch 1, turn (28 sts)
(You will now be working in rows across the back of the head.)
Row 1: sc in next 8 sts, ch 1, turn (8 sts)
Rows 2-6: repeat row 1
Row 7: sc in next 8 sts, fasten off and weave in end
Neck bolts (make two):
With gray and F hook, make an adjustable loop
Rnd 1: 6 sc in loop, do not join
Rnds 2-4: sc in ea st around, fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing to head
Fasten eyes to face.
Using purple yarn and tapestry needle, stitch scar to forehead.
Sew neck bolts into place.
Sew head flap closed, stuffing as you go. Make sure that your stitches are lining up with the rest of the head so the corners meet to make a cubed look when you’re done.
You can add a loop to hang him up for Halloween, fill him with something heavier for a paperweight, or hide him around the house for kids to find (they love that stuff)…
