Here’s a fun reversible toy to give to the little ones in your family for Halloween!

What do you need to create this toy? Scraps of any yarn, DK or Worsted, merino or cotton will work. Since it is a toy for a toddler, you might like to use a washable yarn. At least three colors are needed to make this toy. You will need approximately 50 yards of yarn altogether: An orange color for the pumpkin, and a lighter color for the ghost. You can use any darker color for the pumpkin’s stem and curl as well as for the ghost’s face. You will also need a bit of fiberfill for the ghost’s head.

What skills are required to knit this toy? You need to be comfortable using double pointed needles. Otherwise the making of this toy requires knitting skills like knit, purl, increase, decrease, change of color, and i-cord. You will need to embroider the ghost’s face, and you’ll use a simple whipstitch to sew the two parts of the toy together.
