We’re still in 100-degree weather in San Antonio, but I’m still in a Halloween mood. This week I will be publishing three different designs for chair socks to get your dining room ready for Halloween. Today’s pattern is a ghost chair sock, which will be followed by Frankenstein’s monster and a spider.
The ghost chair sock takes only 11 yards of white yarn and takes just a few minutes to crochet. Eyes and mouth can be painted on, embroidered with black yarn, or glued on with felt. Grab your scrap basket and make up a few in one evening.
Finished Measurements: Approximately 2” tall, 1.5” diameter to fit 4.5” circumference chair leg
Gauge: 5 sc = 1”
Row 1: With white yarn, ch 2 (or magic circle), 6 sc in 2nd ch. Do not join. Work in continuous rnds throughout.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st (12 sc).
Rnd 3: *Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, repeat around (18 sc).
Rnd 4: BLO, sc in each st.
Rnds 5-13: Working in both loops, sc in each st. Join with sl st at end of Rnd 13. Fasten off white. Weave in ends.
To decorate face:
- use fabric paint to make eyes and mouth; or
- cut 3 felt ovals for eyes and mouth and glue to face; or
- use black yarn to embroider eyes and mouth.
