Following on from my creeper and squid patterns I next decided to make a pattern for a ghast. This pattern comprised of the square body, 9 legs, and quite a bit of stitched face and body detailing. This black detailing is what really brings the ghast to life, through my personal preference I opted just to do the black closed eyes ghast facial expression rather than the red eyes, but you could do whichever you prefer.
100g ball of white chunky wool
50g ball of black chunky wool
Sides (make 6):
Row 1: Dc into 2nd ch from hook, dc along row
Rows 2-15: ch1(doesn’t count as a stitch) dc along row
Legs (make 9):
Make a magic ring, ch1, 6dc into ring
Round 1-11: dc around
Sew the sides together than sew in the base, stuff and finally sew on the top. Slightly stuff the legs and sew on to the base. Hand sew on the face and body detail using the black chunky wool.
