Beetlejuice – Free Pattern

Beetlejuice – Free Pattern

He’s the ghost with the most. Did everyone else love this movie as much as I did? And the cartoon? Sometimes I sing Day-O out of nowhere. People might think I’m a bit nuts.

You can’t really tell from this picture, but I gave him glow in the dark teeth. At night he is spooky, but awesome.

Glow in the Dark Yarn (Optional)
12 mm safety eyes

Abbreviations

SC – Single Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
Ch- Chain
INC – SC 2 stitches into same stitch
DEC – SC two stitches together
BLO – Back loops only
FLO – Front Loops only

Gauge – Gauge is not important for this project, but if you are making it from the kit, you should use the right size needle to ensure you don’t run out of yarn.

Notes:
Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.
The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

Crochet section is worked in partly in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.
