This pattern uses weight 6 blanket yarn. Any yarn may be used, but your crochet hook size will be different. Use a hook 1-2 sizes smaller than your yarn calls for. This pattern is in US crochet terms.

This pattern is worked in continuous rounds and using a stitch marker to mark the first stitch is recommended. 

*Safety eyes are NOT recommended for children who are three years old or younger.

The Zombie pictured in the pattern is made with Bernat Blanket yarn.

Legs (Make 2)

R1: 6 sc in a magic ring

R2: 6 inc (12)

R3-6 (4 rounds): 12 sc

Fasten off of the first leg only.

With the second leg, attach with a sc to the first leg (see pictures below)

Continue onto the body:

R7: 24 sc around both legs

R8: (3 sc, inc) x 6 (30)

R9-11 (3 rounds): 30 sc

Stuff both legs firmly. Continue stuffing the body and head as you go.

R12: (3 sc, dec) x 6 (24)

R13: 24 sc

R14: (2 sc, dec) x 6 (18)

R15: 18 sc

R16: (1 sc, dec) x 6 (12)

R17: 12 inc (24)

R18: (3 sc, inc) x 6 (30)

R19: (4 sc, inc) x 6 (36)

R20-24 (5 rounds): 36 sc

R25: (4 sc, dec) x 6 (30)

R26: (3 sc, dec) x 6 (24)

If using safety eyes, insert them now. I prefer to use one button (sewed on) and one embroidered “X” to give the doll a Zombie look. You could embroider both eyes if you prefer. I place my eyes at approximately round 23. Get creative!

R27: (2 sc, dec) x 6 (18)

Finish stuffing the head.

R28: (1 sc, dec) x 6 (12)

R29: 6 dec (6)

Fasten off and sew hole shut.


Normal Arm:

R1: 5 sc in a magic ring

R2: 5 inc (10)

R3-4 (2 rounds): 10 sc

R5: (3 sc, dec) x 2 (8)

R6-9 (4 rounds): 8 sc

Stuff up to round 4 only. Sc across top to close. Sew onto the body just below the head on one side

Bitten Arm:

R1: 4 sc in a magic ring

R2: 4 inc (8)

R3-6 (4 rounds): 8 sc

R7: Fold arm in half and sc 4 across to close. Chain 1 and turn.

R8: sc, chain 2, sl st into next stitch, sc, chain 2, sl st into last stitch. Fasten off.

Do not stuff. Sew the arm onto the body with a scrap piece of yarn. Attach arm from round 1 onto the body so that the "bitten" side is where the hand would be.



Get creative with your Zombie!! I like to embroider a wide smile with stitches for the mouth and 3-4 “stitches” on the body of the zombie. Simply embroider a long line horizontally, then embroider 2-3 small lines across the first line. If desired, add red as an accent colour.
