Giant Adjustable Crochet Halloween Spider Web Pattern – For Haunted House or Costume!


I continue to get hits for my blog post last year about developing this pattern and have received contacts looking for the pattern. This post is just to update and make sure everyone knows that yes, this pattern is available. I don’t know why Google is picking up my old blog post and not any of my more recent ones.

You can get this pattern right now on Etsy and Ravelry.

Look for it here: http://AberrantCrochet.etsy.com and on Ravelry  HERE.  The pattern is an instant PDF download on both websites after payment.

This is a completely adjustable pattern allowing you to extend it to the size you want, up to about 6 feet in diameter. It is also unique in that it can also be used to create a spider web to wear for a costume.

You can read more about this pattern and its requirements at the above links.  You can also find several OOAK ready made (finished) spider webs in my store at: http://PixieWorx.etsy.com on a seasonal basis. If you do not see a finished web for sale, but want one, just convo me.  I usually only list them during the second half of the year, but receive input all year round.

I am also working on a crochet pattern for a 15-20 foot spider web for serious outdoor use. It is an advanced pattern using reinforcing stitches there are currently no yarn standards for (hence the delay in its offering). This design is to help produce an incredibly strong web for lots of stress, use and abuse outdoors in trees, etc.. (Things that often wear fibers out.) If you are interested in the more fortified giant spider web pattern, contact me directly.  However, it is not currently ready for publication yet.

Spider web can be used as a costume accessory

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 right here!

Halloween Spider Web – A Variable Pattern from Aberrant Crochet

$4.25 (includes license to sell finished product)

It is now also listed on http://AberrantCrochet.etsy.com and on Ravelry HERE if you would prefer to use another payment source than PayPal.

This detailed 5-page pattern offers a variable sized crochet spider web for display or costume wear. It includes 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 over-all fairly straight forward.

Nine Radial Spider Web with Support Wedges

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 patten officially ranks at an intermediate level according to yarn standards, I do believe that it is straight forward 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.
