Halloween Witch Granny Square Crochet Pattern


This crochet witch granny square is a part of my Halloween Blanket Crochet Along. Click here to see the other squares.

For Week #2 of the CAL we will be making 4 gray squares, 4 purple squares, and 4 witch appliques that will be sewn onto the gray squares.

This little witch will be the most labor intensive out of all the squares, but it's not hard! Watch the video to help you through and find the materials needed & free written pattern below!


Witch Applique Crochet Pattern


Materials
Green, purple, black, orange yarn
G/4.00mm hook
2 6mm safety eyes
Tapestry needle & Scissors

Notes
Beginning chains don’t count as stitch
Loop stitch: (hold working yarn around index finger) insert hook into st, grab the yarn from behind the index finger as well as the yarn in front of the index finger, pull up a loop (at this point you can pull the working yarn to make the loop smaller or pull the loop to make it bigger), yarn over, pull through all loops on hook. This will create a loop on the backside of your work.
