Spooky Halloween Mini Mystery Crochet Along – Free Crochet Pattern

The Spooky Halloween Crochet Along is kicking off today! I’m so glad you’re here! Myself and A Crocheted Simplicity are working together again to bring another fun crochet along event to you. This time around we’re doing Spooky Halloween!

This post contains affiliate links. At no extra cost to you, I may receive a small commission from purchases made through affiliate links, which helps me to keep bringing awesome free content!

Ok, so it’s not going to be spooky in a scary way, but they are Halloween themed! The best part: it’s a mini mystery CAL, so both projects are small enough that they can be completed this weekend!

So grab your hooks and come crochet along with us from October 1st – 8th, 2021 and you’ll have the chance to win a free pattern from each participating designer, (1) of 2 yarn prizes, AND you’ll also have the chance to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card!
