This Head is very easy and quick to make. That leaves more time to get creative and experiment with different facial expressions!
The pattern uses only basic crochet stitches - double crochets, half double crochets and single crochets and chains.
The pattern was made with scrappy yarns - 4 sizes. 
Crochet hooks: 2.5, 3.00, 3.50 and 4.00 mm.


You can use also some buttons and pins or key chains.

These SUPER EASY Zombies Head would look great strung across a doorway, dangling from your porch, or hidden in your treats bag.


1) A ch1 at beg DOESN'T count as a stitch throughout.
2) The project is crochet as a circle. The Head is worked in rounds. Join each round with a slip stitch. 
3) You can make Heads bigger or smaller with a thicker/thinner yarn or a larger/smaller hook size.
4) Use any colours you love, attach button's eyes or hand sew eyes.
5) Arrange the Heads in a way that makes you happy or hand sew them to your other projects. 



Make a magic ring.

R1: ch1, work 8 sc into the magic ring, sl st in 1st ch to close round (8 sc)

R2: ch1, work 2 sc into each st around, sl st in 1st ch to close round (16 sc)

R3: ch1, rep *2 sc in next 1 st, 1 sc in next st* rep from * to * till end of round, sl st in 1st ch to close round (24 sc)

R4: ch1, rep *2 sc in next 1 st, 1 sc in next 2 st* rep from * to * till end of round, sl st in 1st ch to close round (36 sc)

R5: Work in row: ch3, 1dc in next st, 1 hdc in next 2 st, 1 sc in next st, 1 hdc in next 2 st, 1dc in next st. Turn (7 st)

R6: Work in row: ch2, 1hdc in each st till end of row (7 st)

Optionally: make a chain, chain 10 chains and join the chain with the stitch you just started the chain. 


Cut the yarn, fasten off and wave all ends

I would recommend you to leave a longer end (approx. 7.8 inch / 20 cm) and use this end to join the pin or the key chain on the Zombie Head.


FINISHING with a tapestry needle
Sew the mouth and teeth, start with the yarn on the 4th row of the head. 
Weave in all ends.

Try out different colour combinations and you’ll soon have a whole gang of Crochet Halloween Zombies Heads ready to play tricks on your guests!
