Little spider crochet pattern

It’s almost October, Halloween time! I made these cute spiders for decoration and like to share this little spider crochet pattern with you. I used a knitting spool to make the legs, but you can also crochet them.


  • 1 skein Schachenmayr Catania cotton (or any other yarn that goes with a 2.5 mm crochet hook)
  • 1 pair of safety eyes 8 mm
  • fibre fill
  • crochet hook size 2.5 mm
  • knitting spool

Abbreviations U.S.

  • mr = magic ring
  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • inc = increase (2 stitches in 1 stitch)
  • dec = decrease (2 stitches together)

This little spider crochet pattern is made in continuous rounds. Don’t close the rounds.

Use a knitting spool and French knit a rope that’s about 10 cm long. Make 8 in total. Sew them to the body and use about 1 cm for that, like shown in the picture.

If you want to crochet the legs make a mr with 6 sc. The next round you crochet: 3* (sc, inc). You’ ll have 9 sc. Crochet more rounds with 9 sc until you reach the desired length.

Your spider is finished now. You can attach a piece of yarn so you can hang it up. Or you just place it somewhere.
