Notes

All terms American.   If pattern reads "sc, sc2tog, 2sc" it would be read as, " single crochet, single crochet 2 stitches together, 2 single crochet in the next stitch", directions are to be repeated to end of row/round unless otherwise noted.  As with any pattern, be sure to read through once before beginning, and don't forget to mark your rounds! (I use a bit of contrasting yarn) This is an original design by me, Anna Wilson 2017.




You may do whatever you like with your completed Jack Skellington Lovey, you can cuddle them, donate them, or even give them as a gift!  I only ask that you please not claim this pattern as your own, I worked hard to design my Jack Skellington Lovey :)

Finishing

Attach eyes to head and create facial features. Attach head to "body". Attach arms close to head...closer together than you may assume so don't finish off arms until you're sure you like their placement!

Bat tie- use the sport wt yarn to create bones in wings. I use a bit of ww for eyes on head. Attach head to wings and then to body under Jack's head.

  1. I love this pattern, but I'm having a problem.
    I'm confused by round 2 of the bat head. Is the whole string of stitches in a single stitch. If so, is there a stitch left at the end?

  2. I'm really confused on the bat tie. No matter which way I interpret it it doesn't come out like your picture. Could I have some clarity on what I may be doing wrong?
