These types of easy crochet projects are Specially useful during the busy Halloween Holiday times when you're looking for last minute ideas that are super simple to crochet to decorate your space. 
But seriously running out of time. I can make several crochet wind spinners out of 1 ball and often whilst watching TV 
Last year at Halloween we decorated our Porch with Pumpkin Windspinners, and the kids loved them. We did too.

So this year I have expanded the collection of wind spinner Crochet Patterns I have and added in a little ghost wind spinner. 

The Windspinners are extremely popular around this time of year and the most popular is the Crochet Sunflower Windspinner.

PLEASE READ: NOTES on How to crochet the Spiral Windspinner Decorations 

  • YOu start the ROWS of the wind spinner from the SAME side. 
  • Once finished you may find the wind the spinner is out of shape, simply wind the circles around the middle, evenly to straighten them out. 
  • Spray the DISC SIDES lightly with water (DO NOT SOAK ) and put a heavy book on the top to dry. This helps the spiral keep its shape better when put up to hang. 

In White or chosen color 

Chain 101.  

Row 1: working into the 2nd chain from the hook, work sc in each stitch along to the END. 

FASTEN OFF

ROW 2: Starting BACK at the beginning of ROW 1, join yarn and work 2dc INTO each stitch to last, FASTEN OFF

ROW 3: Join Yarn at the beginning of work, work 3dc into each stitch to last, FASTEN OFF 

Spray with water lightly and twist INTO shape. I place a heavy book on top and leave it to dry. (This will give your wind spinner edges a cleaner look once opened up. 

I crocheted a Small Ghost for the bottom weight for the wind spinner, I had originally imagined a round stuffed ghost, like the crocheted pumpkin wind spinner, but by the time I made him he didn't need as much stuffing as I imagined.

So I re-imagined him into a slightly more ghost shape. Lightly Stuff the Ghost to give it some shaping, and weight, but do not overfill as it will not hang right for the wind spinner.
