Crochet Spider Granny Square | Crochet Halloween Granny Square

Spooky but cute!

Granny squares are my favorite because they have soo much potential! You can turn granny squares into a mini purse, a tote bag, a blanket, etc. Pretty much anything. I will be doing a series of granny squares in the upcoming period so stay tuned!

Round 2: ch2, *dc inc* all around (24)

Either do a regular color change from black to orange or finish off and do an invisible stitch then attach the orange yarn.

Using the orange yarn.

Round 4: ch2, *2dc, dc inc* all around (48)

Round 5: ch1, *3sc, 2hdc, 2dc, [2tc + ch2 + 2tc] in the same stitch, 2dc, 2hdc* all around (68)

Round 6: ch2, *dc* across and [2dc + ch2 + 2dc] in the corners (84)

Cut the yarn and finish off.

  • Small Eye

Cut the yarn and leave a long tail for sewing.

  • Long Spider Leg – Left

Row 1: sl st, ch11, 7sl st, sc, 2sl st (10)

You do not have to create a symmetrical legs, you can create two right lefts and flip one of them. This is completely optional, but I just like to keep the stitches looking in the same.

  • Short Spider Legs – Right x2

Row 1: sl knt, ch8, sl st, sc, 5sl st (7)

  • Short Spider Legs – Left x2

Row 1: sl st, ch8, 5sl st, sc, sl st (7)

  • Assembly

Attach the eyes and legs. Use a sharpie to color the pupils or cut 2 small pieces of felt and glue them. You can even use the black yarn to stitch some eyes. Use the white yarn to stitch a mouth.

Aaaaand you’re done!
