Halloween is almost here and I have for you guys another amigurumi tutorial.
It's very simple but also very cute and very customisable :)

Video Tutorial:

- Yarn in your choice of cauldron colour (I use 8ply)
- Crochet hook (I used 3mm and 3.5mm)
- Stuffing
- Wire (I used a bobby pin and head pin)
- Jewellery pliers
- Your choice of decorations

Using your choice of cauldron yarn:
R1: 6SC Magic circle
R2: INCx6 (12)
R3: (INC, 1)x6 (18)
R4: (INC, 2)x6 (24)
R5: (2, INC, 1)x6 (30)
R6: (INC, 4)x6 (36)
R7: (INC, 5)x6 (42)
R8-12: EVEN (42)
R13: (5, DEC)x6 (36)
R14: (4, DEC)x6 (30)
R15: (1, DEC, 2)x6 (24)
R16-17: EVEN (24)
R18: (2, INC, 1)x6 (30)
R19: (8, DEC)x3 (27)
ST finish off

Curl the opening of the cauldron down to make the top boarder.
Stuff the cauldron but don't make it too neat, you want some of it to be sticking out to give it an over boiling effect.
Using ur jewellery pliers bend your wire into a sort of horseshoe shape and thread it through the top boarder of the cauldron.
You're now free to decorate your cauldron with any type of 'ingredients' as you'd like.
I personally used some googly eyes, snake eyes, salmon yarn for fake worms and polymer clay cane slices.
Be creative and have fun.
If you end up making one feel free to head on over to my Facebook page and show me a photo.

Happy Crafting ^^
