Finished Size

16” around X 5” tall without handle


Super Bulky weight yarn (I used Red Heart Zoomy™ )
Main color – 83 yds (amount may vary depending on how many bandages you make)
Eyeball – 2 yds

Worsted weight yarn (I used Moda Dea Washable Wool)
Mouth – 2 yds

Crochet hook size N (10.00mm)
Yarn needle


10 sts x 8 rows = 4” in sc

The head is worked in the round without joining, use a scrap piece of yarn to mark the end of each row.


Rnd 1 Ch 2, 12 sc in 2nd ch from hook, do not join (12 sc)
Rnd 2 2 sc in ea st around (24 sc)
Rnd 3 * Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, repeat from * around (36 sc)
Rnds 4-16 Sc in each st around
Fasten off


Row 1 Ch 3 sc into 2nd ch from hook and into next ch, turn (2 sc)
Rows 2-109 Ch 3, sc into each sc across, turn (2 sc)
Fasten off

Rnd 1 Leaving a long tail, ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, do not turn (6 sc)
Rnd 2 Sc in each st around (6 sc)
Fasten off – with yarn needle and using tail at beginning, run through base of each st and cinch the first 6 sts tight, then insert needle through center of Rnd 1 and pull yarn all the way through being careful not to turn eyeball inside out. You will use this tail to attach eyeball to head (the mummy’s, not yours).

Row 1 Ch 21, dc into 5th ch from hook, * ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc into next ch, repeat from * across, (10 dc including beginning ch 3)
Fasten off.

Work the same as for the bandages for 24 rows. Fasten off.


Using tails, attach eyeball securely to front of head three rows down from the top.

Attach mouth to the head six rows down from the top and slightly to the right of the eyeball.

Attach handles just inside the top of the head being sure that the face is centered between them.

Wrap bandages around entire head several times, attaching with short lengths of matching yarn as you go, being sure to leave eyeball and mouth uncovered.

Weave in all ends.

This is great. My greedy kids prefer pillowcases for trick-or-treating. I might make one for my own candy stash.

I have a question!!! I saw a purse you made and it has gold heart handles and the purse is brown. Can you tell me where you got the heart handles?? I would appreciate it.

Wonderfully cute pattern being sent around Twitter today. Love how simple it is in design, yet so very clever.

Too bad it also brought all the spammers out too.
