Halloween Pattern | Crochet Mummy Free Pattern

Home » Amigurumi Patterns » Halloween Pattern | Crochet Mummy Free Pattern

I am not sure exactly why but Mummies are my favorite Halloween characters. Maybe it’s a sentiment after watching the movie “Mummy” in my childhood. I still remember that impression it made on me when I watched it for the first time. So this year I decided to make a Mummy as a Halloween pattern.

Before I move into the pattern, here’s my favorite (lame!!) mummies joke: What kind of music do mummies listen to?….. Wrap!

OK, I told you it was lame 🙂


In this post I will first go over supplies and additional info, and then I will lay out the pattern itself. As always, if you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave them in the comments section below or shoot me a note at cogito@cottonnutty.com.

Supplies needed to complete this Halloween Pattern

Yarn

For this project I used following yarn:

Yarn Substitutes

If you cannot (or do not want to) use Catona or Camilla, then you can try to find a replacement. Based on my experience I would recommend using Schachenmayr Catania, Patons Grace or Alize Bahar.

If you need a hand with choosing alternatives, then you may find my blog post on yarn weights useful.

Crochet Mummy Pattern

Mummy’s legs, belly, torso and head are made as one piece. Arms are separate and sewn in. Make all body parts using brown yarn and stuff as you go. The last step is making the bandage stripes and wrapping the mummy in them.

Legs

Make 2. For the first one – fasten off and secure yarn. In case of the second leg – do not cut yarn as we’ll continue to making the rest of the body.

  • 6 sc in mr
  • Row 1: 6 inc (12)
  • Row 2: 1 sc, 3 inc, 2 sc, inc, 2 sc, inc, 2 sc (17)
  • Row 3: inc, 2 sc, 2 inc, * 2 sc, inc * repeat 4 times (24)
  • Row 4: 4 sc, inc, 2 sc, inc, 2 sc, inc, 4 sc, inc, 2 sc, 2 inc, 2 sc, inc, 1 sc (31)
  • Rows 5 through 8: 31 sc (31)
  • Row 9: decr, 2 sc, decr, 7 sc, decr, 2 sc, decr, 12 sc (27)
  • Row 10: decr, 2 sc, decr, 3 sc, decr, 2 sc, decr, 12 sc (23)
  • Row 11: * decr, 1 sc * repeat 4 times, decr, 9 sc (18)
  • Rows 12 through 26: 18 sc (18)

Once you’ve done the second leg, make 4 more single crochet stitches and then chain 4. Now we will connect to the top row of the first leg and continue to making the body. Place legs next to each other in such a way that the feet face same direction. The very first stitch that you will make into the top row of the first leg will be counted as a first stitch of row 27.

Body

Continue from previous step.

  • Row 27: 44 sc around both legs and both sides of the chain in-between (44)
  • Row 28: 44 sc (44)
  • Row 29: decr, 15 sc, 4 decr, 13 sc, 3 decr (36)
  • Row 30: 4 sc, inc, 6 sc, inc, 3 sc, decr, 1 sc, decr, 3 sc, inc, 6 sc, inc, 3 sc, decr (37)
  • Row 31: 4 sc, inc, 8 sc, inc, 4 sc, decr, 4 sc, inc, 8 sc, inc, 3 sc (40)
  • Rows 32 through 49: 40 sc (40)
  • Row 50: * 8 sc, decr * repeat 4 times (36)
  • Row 51: * 4 sc, decr * repeat 6 times (30)
  • Row 52: * 3 sc, decr * repeat 6 times (24)
  • Row 53: * 2 sc, decr * repeat 6 times (18)
  • Row 54: * 1 sc, decr * repeat 6 times (12)
  • Row 55: 12 sc (12)

Crochet Mummy’s Head

  • Row 56: 12 inc (24)
  • Row 57: * 3 sc, inc * repeat 6 times (30)
  • Row 58: * 4 sc, inc * repeat 6 times (36)
  • Row 59: * 5 sc, inc * repeat 6 times (42)
  • Row 60: * 6 sc, inc * repeat 6 times (48)
  • Row 61: * 7 sc, inc * repeat 6 times (54)
  • Rows 62 through 76: 54 sc (54)
  • Row 77: * 1 sc, decr * repeat 18 times (36)

At this stage stuff up and attach safety eyes.

  • Row 78: * 1 sc, decr * repeat 12 times (24)
  • Row 79: 12 decr (12)
  • Row 80: 6 decr (6)

Fasten off and hide the yarn end inside the crochet mummy’s body.

Crochet Mummy’s Arms

Make 2. Until a certain point (marked below), both arms share the pattern. Then it diverges.

  • 6 sc in mr
  • Row 1: 1 sc, 2 inc, 1 sc, 2 inc (10)
  • Row 2: 2 sc, 2 inc, 3 sc, 2 inc, 1 sc (14)
  • Row 3: 4 sc, inc, 6 sc, inc, 2 sc (16)
  • Rows 4 through 6: 16 sc (16)
  • Row 7: 3 sc, inc, 2 sc, inc, 2 sc, 3 decr, 1 sc (15)
  • Row 8: decr, 3 sc, inc, 1 sc, inc, 2 sc, 2 decr, 1 sc (14)
  • Row 9: 14 sc (14)
  • Row 10: 4 sc, 3 decr, 1 sc, inc, 1 sc, inc (13)
  • Row 11: inc, 8 sc, inc, 3 sc (15)
  • Rows 12 through 22: 15 sc (15)

Here the pattern for the left and right arms diverge.

Left Arm

  • make another 12 sc and then ch1 and turn. Since now we’ll turn at the end of each row (we no longer work around)
  • Row 23: decr, 8 sc, decr (10)
  • Row 24: decr, 6 sc, decr (8)
  • Row 25: decr, 4 sc, decr (6)
  • Row 26: decr, 2 sc, decr (4)
  • Row 27: decr, decr (2)
  • Row 28: decr (1)
  • Fasten off and leave tail for sewing.

Right Arm

  • make another 4 sc and then ch1 and turn. Since now we’ll turn at the end of each row (we no longer work around)
  • Row 23: decr, 8 sc, decr (10)
  • Row 24: decr, 6 sc, decr (8)
  • Row 25: decr, 4 sc, decr (6)
  • Row 26: decr, 2 sc, decr (4)
  • Row 27: decr, decr (2)
  • Row 28: decr (1)
  • Fasten off and leave tail for sewing.

Attach both arms. Tweak them slightly so that the palm of one hand is higher than another.


Crochet Mummy’s Bandages

We create white and beige stripes and then wrap around the mummy’s body and limbs, alternately white and beige to produce more of a 3D effect. I made few kinds of stripes as laid out below but feel free to adjust the number and length if you find it easier to work with. At the end of each stripe leave long tail for sewing.

Start wrapping the mummy from the bottom of legs. Then apply stripes onto the arms starting from the shoulders and working towards the palms. Here leave the thinner parts hanging free. Then wrap the ‘bandages’ around the belly, torso and head, leaving out eye areas. Wrap stripes pretty tight but don’t squeeze too much. They should stay in place pretty firmly but to make sure they don’t move sew them into the body here and there (i.e., not along the full length).

Bandages for legs

For each leg make 1 in white and 1 in beige.

  • chain 151
  • Row 1: beginning from the second chain from the hook 150 sc (150), ch1, turn
  • Row 2: 150 sc (150)
  • Fasten off and leave tail for sewing

Bandages for arms

For each arm make 1 in white and 1 in beige.

  • chain 121
  • Row 1: beginning from the second chain from the hook 110 sc, 5 slp st (115), ch1, turn
  • Row 2: 8 slpst, 107 sc (115)
  • Fasten off and leave tail for sewing

Bandages for the rest of crochet mummy’s body

Make 4 in beige and 4 in white.

  • Chain 201
  • Row 1: beginning from the second chain from the hook 200 sc (200), ch1, turn
  • Row 2: 200 sc (200)
  • Fasten off and leave tail for sewing

Once you wrapped all bandages around the body you are done!

I really hope you enjoyed the pattern. If yes then please spread the word. Sharing is caring 🙂

Thank you and see you soon!

  1. The mummy is cute!  What I really like about this, plus the other patterns you’ve shown, is how thorough your instructions are.  For someone like me, who isn’t very patient with any form of needlework, this is helpful!

    I also like how everything can also be customizable.  I’m not a Halloween fan at all, but do appreciate the cuteness of your creations!  The mummy, for instance, is something I can still work with but keep Halloween out of it.
