Ghost Cuddle Buddy - Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Mar 26

Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm so excited to share my adorable Ghost Cuddle Buddy Free Crochet Pattern! He is the perfect trick-or-treat companion or cuddly friend to keep the scaries away! This pattern works up quickly and is the perfect Halloween-themed gift idea!

The finished Crochet Ghost Cuddle Buddy measures approximately 7 inches tall by 5 inches wide and is comprised of a front, back and arms that are all stitched together using a tapestry needle. We will also be stitching on an adorable little face and adding a bit of stuffing between the front and back.
