It’s less than 2 weeks until Halloween, so I think it’s time I shared the Halloween pattern that I have been planning since July. I originally had a Jack-o-Lantern pattern planned, but my silly husband had a better idea. He made a little joke and said that I should make a “Jacques-o-Lantern” instead. I thought this was an awesome idea!

So I thought it would be super cute and fun to make a Jack-o-Lantern with a French mustache instead of a mouth and nose. This is how the Jacques-o-Lantern was born.

The Jacques-o-Lantern is a very simple rag doll pattern and uses only single crochet with increases and decreases. There is a bit of sewing to make the eyes and mustache, but hopefully the little chart below helps!

  1. I’m sorry I don’t understand (tired moms brain). Did you crochet triangles and the mustache and then sew them on or did you embroider the face on?
