Hey guys! I’ve finished the pattern for Boo the Ghost!

I thought this would be a good pattern now that halloween is coming up. He’s pretty cute, if I do say so myself, rattling his (crochet) chains!

2018 update: I crocheted another Boo and thought I’d share him with you guys. As you can see Boo is equally cute without arms and his chains!

    Please revise this pattern, it is very difficult to understand the increase and decrease parts.

      I’m so sorry to hear that. Could you explain in what way you think those parts are difficult to understand?

      I have added a simple how-to on reading my patterns here:
