Adding a Spooky Touch to Your Decor
Halloween is all about creating a spooky atmosphere. Adding a Spider Halloween gnome to your decorations is the perfect way to achieve this.
For maximum effect, place your Spider Halloween gnome in a prominent position in your home, such as a mantelpiece, coffee table, or window sill.
Pairing a Spider Halloween gnome with other spooky decor, like spider webs, bats, or eerie lighting, will help create a haunting Halloween display.
Crochet Spider Halloween gnome pattern
When I started the design of this Halloween gnome I wanted to keep it simple. The crochet spider is still easy and even if you are a beginner you can manage it.
The only tricky part is placing the spider onto the hat and forming the legs before attaching the spider.
We will crochet the gnome’s body in one piece. Later we will add the crochet spider!
Even better! Do you know that you can use the crochet eyeball as a keychain or a bag charm for Halloween?
Crochet Spider Gnome pattern notes
The pattern is worked in one piece. We start from the hat and continue on the body.
We will work in continuous rounds. It means that you don’t need to join your rounds at the end of each round.
For this pattern, I used sport-weight yarn. If you use a different weight of yarn, your gnome will turn out bigger or smaller.
I suggest you use a fine/sport or DK weight yarn with a 2.25-2.5mm hook to achieve the size.
When stuffing the body- stuff it well, so it will stay in shape, but don’t overdo it.

- Sew the hands.
- Use safety pins to secure them before sewing. Sew them when you like the placement.
How to attach the spider to your gnome:
First, take the eyeball and place it onto the hat/ I placed mine on the side.
Take 1 pair of the leg and place it in front of the eyeball. Now take the second and place it on top of the first pair. Secure them with pins and sew them onto the gnome.
Take the head and place it on top of the legs right in front of the eyeball.
When you have secured and sewn on the spider. You need to sew the legs. Use safety pins and secure the legs into position. 4 front frame the head and 4 back legs frame the body (eyeball).
Also, you can use a hot glue gun to attach the spider.
