Mini Halloween Eyeball Crochet Pattern

This Halloween eyeball crochet pattern is sure to get you into the Halloween spirit. These little eyeballs are the perfect size for spooky keychains, magnets, brooches and bag charms.

This pattern is a mini version of my Halloween Eyeball Coaster Pattern and I just love how it turned out.

They’d make a great candy alternative for Halloween and a fun gift for kids to give to their friends.
