What You Need to Crochet a Ghost
To crochet a ghost, you will want first a good crochet pattern, then you’ll want a white yarn which may vary from pattern to pattern plus a crochet hook, scissors, and yarn needle.
Some ghost patterns may call for a four weight yarn as well as a bulky five or super bulky six yarn, so be sure to look over the pattern to know what yarn you will need to have on hand.
Crochet Ghost Supplies:
- Crochet Pattern
- White Yarn: See below for a few white yarn recommendations that are great for making ghosts.
- Crochet Hook: My favorite crochet hook set is the Tulip Etimo Hooks. Each of the ghost patterns below will call for a different sized crochet hook, so keep that in mind when researching crochet hooks and these patterns.
- Yarn Needle / Tapestry Needle
- Tape Measure
- Safety Eyes
Now that you know what you’ll need to get started, take a look at a few of my favorites white yarns below that are great for crocheting ghosts!
