Pacman Inspired Ghosties

These little guys have the perfect little squiggly feet. These ghosties are small and like to float around.  Mine came out to be about 2 inches tall and a inch and a half wide. 

You will need yarn of white, black and whichever color ghostie you would like.  I used some leftover Red Heart yarn.  

Eyes can be glued or sewed on.

You will need an embroidery needle if you want to add a mouth.    

Ghostie body:
R1 - chain 6 in magic ring
R2 - 2 sc in each (12)
R3 - Sc1, 2sc in next st repeat 6 times (18)
R4 - Sc 2, 2sc in next st repeat 6 times (24)
R5-  Sc in all 24 st 
R6-11 repeat R5

crochet in the front loop only for the legs:
sc in first half loop, (sc, hdc, sc) in next, sc repeat this 8x

R12 in back loop of same row as legs- Sc 2, dec 1, repeat 6 times (18 sts)
R13- Sc 1, dec 1, repeat 6 times (12 sts)
Stuff firmly
R24- Sk 1 st, sc 1, repeat 6 times (6 sts)
Bind off, weave in loose end.

This is what the completed ghost should look like

Eyes were made by making a magic circle with black and then switch to white yarn and make 2 sc into the first 3 stitches.  Sew or glue onto body.

Hope you enjoyed the pattern!


  1. For R1, did you mean 6 SC in magic ring and not chain 6?

    How did you make the eyes on the ghosts?

  2. can you post the pattern for the eyes?

  3. These would make fun Christmas tree ornaments.

  4. What about the eyes?

  5. updated the pattern to include the eyes!
