Little Ghostie – Free Pattern!

👻 I released this adorable little ghostie pattern on my Instagram last Halloween, but it never made it over here onto the blog…until now! These make super cute little Halloween decorations on their own, or you can string them together into bunting to hang in your windows, on your walls or anywhere you like! You can find the pattern below…

This pattern is written in UK TERMS. See my handy conversion chart for UK / US terms here.

The size of your ghosties will vary based on the kind of yarn you use. For my ghosties, I used RitoHobby Infinity Hearts Rose 8/4 – 100% Cotton yarn and they’re about 5.5cm tall. 👻
