Amigurumi Halloween Skull

Thought I’d have a go at working up a quirky amigurumi for Halloween. Nothing says scary like DK on a 3 mm hook, right? ?

I can’t even call this  stash buster, it uses so little yarn. Finished skull measures about 2 inches tall.

  • White DK
  • Black DK
  • 3 mm hook
  • tapestry needle

Start with the white leaving a really long tail; this will be used to chain a hanging loop

  1. 6dc in a magic loop
  2. 2dc in each stitch (12)
  3. 2dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next  (18)
  4. 2dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 2 (24)
  5. 2dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 3  (30) – place stitch marker
  6. dc in every stitch (30)
  7. dc in every stitch (30)
  8. dc in every stitch (30)
  9. dc in every stitch (30)
  10. dc 3, dc2tog, dc, dc2tog, dc 2, dc2tog, dc, dc2tog, dc 15 (26) – place stitch marker
  11. dc in every stitch (26)
  12. dc in every stitch (26)
  13. dc 3, dc inc, dc, dc inc, dc 2, dc inc, dc, dc inc, dc 15 (30) – place stitch marker
  14. dc 16, dc2tog x 7 (23)
  15. dc2tog, dc2tog, dc 4, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc 7 (17)
  16. (dc2tog, dc) x 5, dc2 tog (12)
  17. dc2tog x 6

Rows 10 – 14 decreases & increases are the eye sockets dimples. Use the black DK to add eyes there, then a triangular nose and mouth underneath
