Scotty – The Crochet Spider

Crochet Spider

Hi there, it’s San from Loopsan again, which means that there will be some crochet going on today :)

I’m not a huge fan of spiders. To be honest I really do my best to avoid them. But with Halloween coming up it was about time to create a spider I’m very happy to share my house with.

How to Crochet a Spider Tutorial

You’ll need:

  • Acrylic or cotton DK yarn in black (I use DK yarn as its the most common in the UK, you can use worsted yarn instead but you might want to adjust your hook size)
  • Size G/ 4 mm hook (if you’re using worsted yarn go up a hook size)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Poly-fill
  • Wobbly eyes

Let’s get started:

Round 1: 6 sc  in magic ring. (6 st)
