This Witch costume fits most of the Amigurumis in our animal wildlife collection; hence, it will fit other stuffed dolls of a similar size. Though, if you wish, you could make this Witch Halloween costume for a toddler by enlarging the size of the cape and hat by using bulkier yarn (the easiest way)! Besides toddlers and stuffed animals, how about make them for your petite cats and dogs? Simply add a drawstring and cord lock to the hat and secure the hat on your cats and dogs.

In this free pattern and tutorial, we’ll also cover the tools and materials required, as well as the instructions on how to make Witch costume props such as the Witch hat, Witch cape, and Witch broom

As a matter of fact, we have published the Witch Hat, Witch Cape, and Witch Broom separately in line with this Halloween Witch Cat Costume pattern. However, to ease your reading, we decided to make a rounded up the Witch costume for amigurumi to include all the info into a single pattern. Also, if you are interested in the little pumpkin next to them, here is the link to the free amigurumi pumpkin crochet pattern. The pumpkin crochet patterns consist of 3 different sizes; the one shown above is the smallest size.

Witch Cape

With a crochet tension of 22 sts x 24 rows, the total length of our crochet Witch Cape is 7”; with a drape length of 4.5”. This pattern is made up of three simple components; collar, drape, and tie. Begin by crocheting the collar, followed by the drape that connects to the collar; then use chain stitches to finish off the tie until it measures 14”.

We used purple yarn to crochet the Witch Cape for our black witch cat. Do feel free to crochet your cape with your preferred color to match your theme.

Witch Hat

Our crochet Witch hat measures at 4” tall, 3.5” wide with a head circumference of 4”. Again, this is done with the same crochet tension of the witch cape of 22 sts x 24 rows. You will first need to crochet the hat body in rounds with purple-colored yarn, followed by the hat band with orange-colored yarn, then the buckle with black-colored yarn. Finally, assemble the three components by sewing or sticking the band & buckle to the hat. 

Besides black and orange, purple is one of the dominant colors for Halloween. Similar to the cape color, since the crochet stuffed cat is already in black color, we did the hat with purple yarn to contrast the overall look of the costume. Find out what other Halloween colors you may use to represent Halloween.

Witch Broom

This broom is a quick and easy Halloween craft to make and it doesn’t require any crochet skill. It is so easy that kids can make it. What you need are an 8″ long ¼” twig, raffia yarn in kraft color, and some simple tools that you can find in your craft drawer. You may replace the raffia yarn with another type of yarn; just ensure it has stiff fiber like twine, linen yarn, starched yarn, or paper yarn.

Begin by winding the yarn roughly 40 times around the cardboard, then insert a new yarn strap through the loops before removing it from the cardboard. Next, place the twig on the yarn, apply some all-purpose adhesive at the twig where the area is in contact with the yarn. Finish off by tying another strip of yarn to the broom’s brush and trim all excess yarn.
