This Sweetest Lil Witch Amigurumi Crochet Pattern makes a little trick-or-treater Witch amigurumi doll. It comes with instructions for her personalized trick-or-teat bag! She’s not very traditional, but neither am I. My husband says she looks Tim Burton-ish. Makes perfect sense to me. The first time I saw anything by Tim Burton, I instantly felt nostalgic.

Tips for making amigurumi: When working up amigurumi, the stitches should be tight in order to contain the polyfill. You will stuff the critters pretty tightly by using rolled up, small pieces of polyfill to really get it firm so it doesn’t lose its shape.
How to decrease (abbreviation is “dec”): Also known as “sc2tog”. Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook. That is one decrease.
This pattern is worked in the round. You will use your stitch marker to tell you where your row ends and where it begins. Start from the top and work down.

When doing any lettering, I make little dots with a washable marker the same color as the fabric. If I goof or don’t like it, I can rub it with a damp washcloth and it just fades in. For this bag, I used worsted weight yarn and gently pulled it through between the stitches with a yarn needle. You may dab a little fabric glue around the yarn or under it if you think it will go through some playtime. I use a craft glue by Elmer’s that dries clear.
