Are Aliens Halloween-y?

While making this little alien amigurumi, here at Freddy Goat, we got into a long running dispute — are aliens Halloween-y??? This all arose when Goat tried to market our free alien pattern as a Halloween give-away.

The dispute goes something like this:

Goat: They are totally Halloween-y. They are scary.

Freddy: I don’t think they’re scary. Plus, roaches are scary. Are they Halloween-y?

Goat: People dress up as aliens for Halloween.

Freddy: You can dress up as a doctor for Halloween. That doesn’t make doctors canonically Halloween-y.

As you see, we just go round and round, so we’ll leave it up to you to decide. If you have strong feelings about it, drop us a comment.

Whether you’re making Lil Alien for Halloween or not, we hope you enjoy the pattern!

Before we get started, this is what you need:

  • 2.75mm(US C-2) crochet hook
  • Aran or worsted weight yarn:
    • Color A (lower body and legs)
    • Color B (head stripes and suckers)
    • Color C (headstripes)
    • Color D (tongue)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stuffing
  • Snap eyes

5-rnd gauge circle = 1.75”/4.5cm Gauge isn’t terribly important in amigurumi, so it is okay to use a slightly larger hook if that is all you have. However, you don’t want to see stuffing through the stitches, so don’t get too big.

  • Magic ring (MR)
  • Single crochet (sc)
  • Increase (inc)
  • Invisible decrease (invdec)
  • Change color 
  • Invisible join 
  • Work in BLO 
  • Draw closed
