Halloween Craft – Nightmare Before Christmas

Final Halloween craft post. One of my favourite Halloween films is Nightmare Before Christmas. I couldn’t resist making a crochet Zero, Jack’s pet dog. Pattern available here.

I’ve taken lots of photos of the creation process, so check out my flickr if you need to see more angles.

I started with the main body, the odd heart shaped bit. Then the under-body, jaw, and finally head. I blocked, or flattened, out all the pieces but the head.


This made them easier to work with, because they were curling an awful lot beforehand.

The head looked quite odd during the process. Led do some weird questions while I was working on it during my lunch hour!


The project came together relatively quickly and was easy to put together. The pattern was well written and there are quite a few examples of other projects on Ravelry, which is always helpful when you’re a bit confused.

Overall, I’m happy with the final result:


Best part is, it can be a Halloween AND Christmas decoration.
