Crochet Krampus Hat – Free Pattern

You can find this free crochet pattern  for a Krampus Hat at Morale Fiber here.

Who and what is Krampus? From wikipedia:

“In Central European folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”, who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts.”

Below is a modern interpretation of Krampus by Derek Yaniger for sale on Outre Gallery here.


Krampus can be traced back to pre-Germanic paganism. His original name, krampen, means “claw”, and he was also the son of the Norse god of the underworld, Hel.

Krampus visits houses with St. Nicholas on the night of December 5th. St. Nicholas puts candy in the shoes of good kids, while Krampus puts birch twigs in the shoes of bad kids. 

Now Krampus has become the incarnation of Scrooge and the Grinch mashed together, with a little terror thrown in. 

Here is a Krampus greeting card from the early 1900s.


This is a reblog for those who missed my Krampus post last year.

DIY Crochet Spiderweb Halloween Costume

You can get 50% off this $2.00 pattern using the coupon code “THALESWEB” – but I’m not sure when the coupon expires.

Liz Spencer on Ravelry writes:

This pattern works up pretty quickly and makes for a really easy, but really fun and unique costume for last minute Halloween parties, trick-or-treating or, if you’re like me, a fun little number to throw over a black dress and wear out anytime because Halloween is life.

It is an easily customizable pattern, so you can make one to fit everyone in your family even! The design is for a pullover type item that looks like a spider’s web, and has an open webbing look to it, and it could easily be slipped over items such as ports and other medical equipment as well.

You can also make a cheap and easy spiderweb tee shirt. You can find the DIY Corinne Day Inspired Spiderweb Tee Shirt Tutorial from Jezebel here.



DIY Crochet Skeleton Scarf Pattern

I looked back on my old post for

Fabienne Gassmann’s Crochet Self Portrait Skeleton Scarf, and found that almost every link was broken and there was no pattern at that time. So this is the Updated 2019 post with a pattern.

Self Portrait Skeleton is a large scarf for the patient crocheter, it is worked entirely in filet crochet and ends up as a picture of a life size skeleton.

Here is another cool photo of the scarf:
