For my squares, I used Paintbox Yarns Simply DK, which is a very good acrylic yarn in tons of beautiful colors!

Valid alternative yarns are the ones below:

But of course, you can use any yarn with the appropriate hook.

Just check the table above to see what square size to expect with different yarn weights and hook combinations.

How Much Yarn Will You Need?

This is a very difficult question because the answer depends on what you’re going to make with your squares.

To estimate the amount of yarn you’ll need, keep in mind the following things:

  • You’ll need about 8 yds for the circle center of each granny square;
  • and about 12 yds for squaring;
  • Plus, a little extra for the appliques and decorations.

What Can You Make with Your Halloween Granny Squares?

I am going to make a pillowcase with 9 squares on each side.

The final size of the pillow will be 45 cm (17 inches) – DK yarn and a 4-mm hook – For the pillow, I simply bought a cheap one at a local store and I am going to use the stuffing of that pillow.

But you do not necessarily need to crochet a pillow. You can also make:

  • blanket,
  • join a few to make a fun candy bag,
  • garland,
  • potholders (if you’re using cotton yarn),
  • or really anything you can think of!

  1. These are so cute!!! Looks like my grandson will be getting something with granny squares very soon… 😁 Thank you for sharing these with us!

  2. Ive never done a cal before. If i dont get done by a certain time is that a problem? I work ft and go to school pt but I know someone who would love this!

    • Hi Amanda,
      There is really no problem if you do not have the time to make all the squares when I send them to you. They are going to be quite a few squares in a relatively short time, so it is perfectly normal.
      But you can collect the patterns during the CAL, start, and then crochet them at your own pace!

    • Hi Michele,
      Welcome to the CAL! Of course you can get the patterns of the first week. There are three of them.
      Would you, please, send me an e-mail at raffaella(at)raffamusadesigns(dot)com? I will then send you all the info to get the first patterns 🙂

  3. Hello! these are absolutely fantastic! ❤ I would love to join this CAL and signed up above. I sm a little late as I just saw this… will I still be able to see all the patterns?? I am a fast crocheter, so I can definitely catch up quickly. 🙏🙏💙💙 Thank you ~ love Bean

  4. Hello, I have joined the cal for the Halloween granny square and I need the set up to know because I never got them. So is there any way I can get them?

    • Hi Jerrie, Could you please send me an e-mail so that I can check what is going on? I have been having trouble with e-mail deliverability but I tried to fix the problem over the weekend. Did you get any e-mails yesterday by any chance?

  5. Raffaella,
    Somewhere along the line I seem to have been dropped out of the Halloween CAL, and have only received the Spider, the Spider Web and the Eyeball.
    Please help.
    Judy F.

    • Hi Judith,
      Sorry for that. You were not dropped out of the CAL, it is just that I’ve been having problems with e-mail deliverability and had to set up a new e-mail account last weekend.
      Anyway, today, I’ll send the fourth part of the CAL and there will be all the links for the third file as well. If you don’t get that one either, please, let me know.
      In the meantime, I’ll try to contact you directly via e-mail so that you can add my new e-mail address to your contacts (I think that helps with deliverability of e-mails…)
      Stay in touch,

  6. HI there! Loving this CAL although I’m a bit late getting started! Anyway, would you mind emailing to me the latest two squares (witch and crystal ball?) since I haven’t received them in my email.

    Thanks so much!!

  7. Hi raffaella I have just joined and I must say this is an awesome idea I am currently making a Halloween blanket for my daughter and these should be a great addition to it 😊

  8. This is the first posting I have seen about this cal . Can I still get the squares and be included? I have subscribed. Thanks

    • Hi Angela, sure, you’ll get all the patterns. Some are already in the welcome e-mail and the rest will be linked in the first regular CAL e-mail that I’ll send after you subscribe

  9. Thank you very much for the add at this very late stage 🙂
    I’m hoping to add your designs to a long duster-style cardigan I am making other autumnal granny squares for.
    Fingers crossed!

  10. Hello…i signed up last week and received only one email so far. Should I have received more than that? I guess I just want to make sure I have been added to your list to receive all the Halloween square patterns. Thank you!
