How to Crochet: a Pac-Man Ghost

I was getting ready for Halloween and started making a ghost, when I thought… “Wait.. why don’t I just turn this into a Pac-Man Ghost!” So I did!

This pattern is my very first Pocket Pattern! What’s a pocket pattern? I’m glad you asked Louie!


Pocket Patterns are free printer friendly PDF’s that can be easily folded up into a small booklet and taken on the go!
