Lighted Frankenstein Ornament – Free Pattern

A new lighted ornament just in time for Halloween!



What you will need:

frankenstein-suppliesBlack worsted wt [4] yarn; Green worsted wt [4] yarn; Gray worsted wt. [4] yarn; a battery operated tea light; Red 3D fabric paint2 – 10mm wiggle eyes; Size G / 4.0mm crochet hook; stitch marker; craft glue; scissors; and a yarn needle.

Notes: The “face” of this project is worked in continuous rounds not joining.

Stitches and abbreviations used

ch…      chain sc…     single crochet
st…     stitch sl st… slip stitch

FACE  Round 1: With green and G/4.0mm crochet hook make 10 sc in a magic circle making sure not to pull the center closed. Use a stitch marker to keep track of each round by placing it in the first stitch and move it up for each round. (10 sc)

Round 2: Work 2 sc in each st around. (20 sc) At this point I like to place the “flame” of the candle into the center hole and adjust making sure it fits snugly then I secure and weave in the center yarn tail.

Rounds 3-7: sc in each stitch around. Do NOT fasten off, Place the stitch marker in the loop of the last stitch and cut a long enough tail for sewing then set aside. (If your tea light happens to be a little taller you can add an 8th round)

hair-neck-boltsHAIR   With black ch 4, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 2 ch, (3 sc)

Rows 2- 9: ch 1, sc in each st across Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing.

NECK BOLTS (make 2)  With gray ch 3, 3 sc in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in first ch, finish off


Now lay the hair across the top of the face and sew into place. On each side of the face 3 rows below the hairline, attach the neck bolts. Then I took about a 10 in piece of black yarn and looped it on top as an ornament hanger.frankenstein-placement

Next it’s time to put the crocheted piece on the tea light. Slide it on like a sock making sure the “flame” fits nice and snug in the hole of the face. Put your yarn needle on the tail you left and start weaving it around the last row tightening it just enough to fit snugly around the base of the tea light, but making sure the on/off button is still operational.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Now all that’s left is glue on the wiggle eyes, use some of the red 3D paint to make a mouth, and use the black to make eyebrows and if you wish add a little scar on the head as well.


Enjoy your new lighted ornament!!
