Shining Twins – mini horror – free crochet pattern

I’ve been consistent. It’s crazy. I’m really trying to get more typed and up. There are so many patterns that I have written that I still have not typed. I’m working on some mythical creatures and a potential book.

Not all patterns will stay free forever so get it while you can. These two are great because you can make them separately or sew them together. You also can coat them in blood because that is just an excellent idea.

Yarn in light blue, beige, light brown

12 mm safety eyes

Black Embroider Floss

Thin white ribbon

Size E crochet hook

Large eye blunt needle



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.


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.

In Light Brown

Using the hair color, wrap the yarn around an item the same width as you want the length of your hair to be. (I used my iphone). These wraps should be as long on the phone as your set aside piece of hair. The more wraps you do, the thicker the hair.

Fold the yarn in half and insert into the brown section of the head. Pull up a loop and then take the remaining yarn through the loop to secure it. Repeat to fill the head.


Using the Black Embroidery Floss, embroider eyelashes and mouth on each doll.

Use the white ribbon to tie up the hair at the side and to tie ribbon around the center of the dress.

Make a second doll. Sew the dolls together or leave them separate.
