This little Skeleton doll is too cute to be scary! He (or she) would make a great Halloween decoration or gift.

Little Skeleton doll is knitted flat and seamed. Basic increases and decreases are used for shaping.

The “Bones” are simple crochet chains- although a similar effect can be obtained with wool embroidery.

Safety eyes are used – I also give full instructions for making embroidered eyes.

The pumpkin is sewn to the dolls leg to enable him to stand un-aided.
