Crochet Slimer – Amigurumi

Find here a cute pattern for a Slimer-inspired Halloween ghost!


 

Hi everyone! My son wanted to be Ghostbuster for Halloween this year and he asked for a little crochet Slimer to go with his costume. It didn’t turn out exactly like I want it to be but my son loves it and is really excited with his green crochet ghost!
