Many people have asked about a pattern for my spider webs. Though the spider webs you see in my shop are all OOAK and each unique, I have written a more simplified pattern for purchase. It is a 9 radial spider web that can be easily customized to the size you need, up to approximately 6 feet in diameter. This is not the same pattern as my giant 15-foot Metamorphosis Spider Web which I’m still working on the technical writing for. But I think for many the smaller size will do.
You can purchase this pattern on Etsy and Ravelry!
This detailed 5-page pattern offers a variable-sized crochet spider web for display or costume wear. It includes a glossary of terms, color photos, display guidelines, and instructions for sizing up to an estimated 6 feet in diameter. Gauge is not particularly important to the construction of this pattern, but it will affect the end size.
Stitches are overall fairly straightforward.
However, this pattern requires a lot of counting, basic lace concepts, and prior knowledge of extended crochet stitches beyond double crochet.
As such, this pattern ranks as intermediate crochet according to pattern standards guidelines and is written in American English terms. You will find a glossary of abbreviated terms used in this pattern on the last page.
Hook size: 10 (J) or 6 mm
Yardage: 300 – 600 yards
Sizes available: variable up to about 6 feet depending on your tension
Designer’s Notes: Though this pattern officially ranks at an intermediate level according to yarn standards, I do believe that it is straightforward and repetitive enough for an adventurous beginner to make. If you are still learning stitch and tension control, then this pattern may be difficult for you. I recommend very even and loose stitches for this pattern and a highly structured worsted weight acrylic yarn. However, this pattern does work with sparkly and novelty yarns for an eclectic look under a black light or “in the shadows.’
PLEASE NOTE: These spider webs are designed for decor and when worn, with teens and adults in mind. Spider webs are NOT toys. And a spider web should never be hung or left where a small child might get tangled in it or where it could pose risk or present a hanging hazard.
