Pac-Man Ghosts Pattern

For Halloween, I wanted to decorate our front yard with not just regular ghosts, but Pac-Man ghosts. I adapted Erica Yen's pattern to make them slightly bigger and more proportionally similar to the original 2D sprites. If you'd like to make my version (best shown by the pink and orange ghosts), then download the pattern below!

Availability: free (do not sell this pattern or products made from it)

  • Crochet hook - size G (4 mm)
  • Worsted yarn in red, orange, pink, and cyan (I used Red Heart Super Savers)
  • 2 stitch markers, polyester stuffing, and tapestry and embroidery needles
  • Black and white felt and thread for the eyes

I also followed a great tutorial for a 10-minute giant spider web that doesn't involve any crocheting. I've seen joggers come to a complete standstill in front of it, so it must be effective. Found a fake spider at a thrift store that was added later, but didn't get a picture of it.

What Halloween or autumn decorations have you put up to decorate your place?

Thanks so much! I wish I had time to make a Ms. Pac-Man but I need to start on Christmas gifts already. O_o

Yay! I hope you both get a chance to make them; they're definitely showstoppers. :)
