This crochet spider granny square is a part of my Halloween Blanket Crochet Along. Click here to see the other squares.
For Week #7 of the CAL we will be making 4 gray squares, 4 black squares, and 4 spider appliques that will be sewn onto the gray squares.
This spider is so easy and quick to make – but I have to warn you, it is a pain to sew onto the square. Don’t worry, it is worth it since it looks so cool! Watch the video to help you through and find the materials needed & free written pattern below!
