Crochet Tutorial: Spooky Eyeballs

“I always feel like somebody’s watching me, and I have no privacy!” You’re going to feel that way too, when you make yourself a set of these creepy plush eyeball amigurumis!

This is an EXTREMELY simple, but fun project where multiples can be created in a short period of time. I made these for a Halloween party that I have coming up, but the ideas for these are limitless!

Not only can you use these for spooky decoration by placing them in a jar or scattering them on the buffet table or giving them away for party favors for kids, but you can also use these for fun games like bean bag toss (fill them with beans or rice instead of poly-fil). These would be great for juggling. Attach a jumpring to a key ring and you can make a keychain! You can fill it with flax or rice and make a hacky sack.


If you do not want to make the eyeball design, this is a great way to make a small sphere. You can make these in solid colors, or multiple colors. If you make these in holiday colors, they would fit with any time of year festivities! These are just a few of my ideas, but we have such a creative crochet community, I’m sure you can come up with more. Leave a comment with your ideas!

Today’s blog includes an easy to follow instructional video as well as a FREE written pattern. Let me see your creativity at work!

“Eye of newt, and toe of frog, wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting, lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing, for a charm of powerful trouble, like a hell-broth boil and bubble…” ~William Shakespeare
