In my last post, I showed you the cutest baby girl crochet Halloween costume patterns. Today I want to show you the coolest baby boy crochet Halloween patterns. These outfits can also be sweet newborn photo prop outfits. I have found them all on Etsy.

The cutest costumes for boys

The first pattern is the Baby Yoda Costume.

Inspiration doesn’t always have to come from real-life people. We often find ourselves inspired by characters that live in the kingdoms of the books we read and the movies we watch.

Yoda was a legendary Jedi Master and stronger than most in his connection with the Force. Small in size but wise and powerful, he trained Jedi for over 800 years, playing integral roles in the Clone Wars, the instruction of Luke Skywalker, and unlocking the path to immortality.

Grand Jedi Master Yoda won us all with his kindness, his soothing and trustworthy voice, his wisdom, and, of course, his charmingly funny way of speaking.

These are two of his quotes that I love:

˝Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.˝


˝Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.˝

The Yoda baby pattern is an instant download PDF. Sizes of the design is for 0-3 months old babies. Pattern is written in English using US crochet terms. The set consists of a robe, hat, and booties. It is not a complicated pattern, but you need to be familiar with basic techniques and stitches.

Pattern designer is Nataliya from Moscow, Russia, and the name of her Etsy shop is Nataliyaknitting.

The Cowboy

Cowboys played an essential role in the settling of the west. Ranching was a big industry, and cowboys helped to run the ranches. They herded cattle, repaired fences, and buildings, and took care of the horses.

Cowboys often worked on cattle drives. This was when a large herd of cattle was moved from the ranch to a market place where they could be sold. A lot of the original cattle drives went from Texas to the railroads in Kansas. Eight to twelve cowboys could move 3,000 head of cattle along the cattle drives. Now that is a lot of cows.

Cowboys often wore their clothes for weeks without changing (There goes my romantic idea of a Cowboy). They wore denim jeans with chaps to protect their legs from the thorny branches their horses rode through. Their wide-rimmed Stetson hats shielded them from the sun and also served as a cup—they’d use it to scoop up water for both themselves and their horses to drink. They wore a bandana around their neck, which they could pull up to protect their nose and mouth from trail dust.

This 5 Piece Crochet Cowboy Pattern is the perfect little outfit for those prop photo pictures. Easy to read and follow instructions for everything seen in the pictures. The pattern is written in US terminology. You have so many different color options with this outfit. Great design, even for beginners. Pattern sizes include 0-3 months and 3-6 months.

The designer’s name is Wanetta Cavanaugh, and she lives in a small province in Canada called Moncton, New Brunswick. The name of her Etsy shop is AlwaysPrettyInPink. There you can find a lot of amazing patterns and finished cosumes for the little ones. I will show you more of her awesome work, so keep reading.

The Marine

Did you know that the Marines were formed before the US won its independence from the British? The same day Major Samuel Nicholas became the commanding officer of the Marines in late 1775, he went to local bars and taverns to recruit his two battalions.

One of his first recruits was the owner of a local tavern known as the Tun Tavern. It became the recruitment base where prospective Marines, attracted by cold beer, were swarmed in. That is an interesting approach to recruit men. The Tavern is often considered the birthplace of the Marines. The original Tun Tavern burnt down in 1781, but was rebuilt and still stands today in Philadelphia. Today, Tun Tavern beer is sold throughout the Philadelphia area. That means you can still drink the beer that lured in new marines.

The Marines’ Hymn famously begins, “From the Halls of Montezuma…” This refers to the Battle of Chapultepec in 1847, in which U.S. Marines conquered Chapultepec Castle in Mexico City and occupied the city as part of the Mexican-American War. The battle is also famous (according to Marine tradition) for the establishment of the “blood stripe,” a red stripe sewn into the trousers of the uniform honoring the Marines killed at Chapultepec.

I am sure you heard the nickname, Leatherneck. Do you know it is historical?

In 1798, the Marine Corps began issuing “one stock of black leather and clasp” to Marines. The item was worn to protect their necks when fighting with swords. Today, the standing collar on the dress coat of the Marine Corps uniform is a vestige of the leatherneck tradition.

The little Crochet Marine Pattern will be a sure hit. The costume really is an excellent replica of a Marine uniform.
The pattern comes with instructions for everything shown in the pictures. It is easy to follow and is written in US terminology. What a perfect outfit for photo prop pictures. A keepsake to keep for the military family. Size is 0-3 months.

The designer of this pattern is also Wanetta Cavanaugh, from small province in Canada called Moncton, New Brunswick. The name of her Etsy shop is AlwaysPrettyInPink.

The Prince

Prince Rogers Nelson (1958 – 2016) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, dancer, actor, and filmmaker. With a career spanning four decades, Prince was known for his eclectic work and extravagant stage appearances. He was also a multi-instrumentalist and regarded as a guitar virtuoso. Prince was also known for his vast and extensive vocal range. I think we all remember his high pitch sound.

Few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the ’80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the rock & roll era, capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock.

Standing at the height of 5’2″ (157.5 cm) and weighed 112 pounds (50 kg),
Prince often wore heels, both on- and off-stage to combat his small size. His grand piano was
even modified by shortening the legs so he could reach the pedals while
sitting down to play.

What was Prince’s shoe size? He wore a women’s size 5.5 or 6 (38,5 – 39 in EU) depending on the manufacturer. I could borrow his shoes.

I think the purple rain outfit from 1984 may be the most famous of Prince’s outfits. Purple Rain made Prince a superstar; it eventually sold over ten million copies in the US and spent 24 weeks at number one.“Purple Rain” won Prince Best Original Score Oscar at the 57th Academy Awards for the film.

Prince wrote more songs than The Beatles, with a back catalog that reaches over 600 songs! Now that is a huge amount of songs for one person.

In Wanetta’s shop you can buy a pattern for this adorable little version of the famous outfit. It is the perfect Halloween costume for your 2-year-old boy or girl. Take a walk back on memory lane when you dress your little one up in this stylish outfit. It comes with everything seen in the pictures, the jacket, pants, and shoes.

Sizes Newborn – 2 years.

The designer of this fantastic pattern is also Wanetta Cavanaugh. The name of her Etsy shop is AlwaysPrettyInPink. She has so many unique patterns, I had to post a few of them here.

Michael Jackson

Michael Joseph Jackson (1958 – 2009) was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. Named the “King of Pop,” he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century and one of the greatest entertainers. Jackson’s contributions to music, dance, and fashion, along with his publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades. I can’t believe he has been gone for ten years. I couldn’t help but to write some fantastic facts about this extraordinary man.

He gave his first public performance at the age of 5, singing Climb Every Mountain.

His song “Billie Jean” has earned the tag of being the first song by a black artist to be aired on MTV.

In 1983, his album – Thriller, proved to be a worldwide hit and the best-selling album of all time, with approximately 65 million copies sold. Thriller spent 37 weeks at number one in the US Billboard chart.

He has 23 Guinness World Records, 40 Billboard Awards, 13 Grammys, and 26 American Music Awards. Now, reread the truly remarkable numbers.

Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson were part of the most expensive video ever “Scream” with a massive expense of $7,000,000. With this amount, you could make almost three low-budget movies.

He has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (one for himself and one as part of the Jackson Five).

Jackson gave vast amounts of money to charity and regularly wore a black armband to remind people of children suffering around the world.

Those are just some of the fantastic facts I wanted to share with you. If your little one wears the Jackson costume, you can tell these impressive details to other people. I bet he would be very proud to represent the King of Pop.

Michael Jackson’s outfit represents the clothing he wore in his music video, Thriller. The top hat, black pants, black boots with attached silver socks. Silver belt, red jacket, and yes, of course, a silver glove to add to the finishing touch. There can’t be anything cuter than your baby boy in this outfit once you make it. Pattern is easy to read and follow and written in US terminology. Size is for 0-3 months old baby.

The creator of this pattern is, of course, the fantastic Wanetta Cavanaugh from AlwaysPrettyInPink.

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson’s favorite animated character was Pinocchio, and he played a scarecrow in The Wiz, a movie version of The Wizard of Oz (Did you know that?). Those two are the last two costumes I want to show you today. I hope you like my findings so far.

The Pinocchio

The Pinocchio is a fictional character and the star of the children’s novel The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883) by Italian writer Carlo Collodi. Pinocchio was carved by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a Tuscan village. He was created as a wooden puppet, but he dreams of becoming a real boy. He is notably characterized by his frequent tendency to lie, which causes his nose to grow. To become a real boy, Pinocchio must prove himself brave, truthful, and unselfish, with the help of Jiminy Cricket as his conscience.

Always let your conscience be your guide.— Jimmy Cricket, Pinocchio

Pinocchio is a cultural icon. He is one of the most reimagined characters in children’s literature. His story has been adapted into other media, notably the 1940 Disney film Pinocchio, which won two Academy Awards. It is the first Disney film to win an Oscar for both musical categories: Best Score and Best Song (for “When You Wish Upon a Star”).

A lie keeps growing and growing until it’s as plain as the nose on your face.— The Blue Fairy, Pinnochio

The cute baby boy Pinnochio costume is a beginner to an intermediate pattern. It is written in US Crochet Terms. Pinocchio pattern is available in size newborn – 3 months. But you can also find a pattern in Laurie’s shop for 12 to 18 months old. Costume Pattern includes hat, pants, shirt, shoes, feather, bow tie, and suspenders.

The designer of this fascinating costume is Laurie Lambert from Simcoe, Canada. Her Etsy shop is JayKayS Crochet. Her specialty is crochet baby items. She loves making tiny costumes and shoes for little ones to wear.

The Pinnochio

The last cute crochet pattern for baby boy is The Scarecrow.

A scarecrow is a decoy or mannequin, often in the shape of a human. Humanoid scarecrows are usually dressed in old clothes and placed in open fields to discourage birds from disturbing and feeding on recently cast seed and growing crops. Scarecrows are used across the world by farmers and are a notable symbol of farms and the countryside in popular culture. I am sure you are thinking you don’t want your baby to be dressed as a scarecrow. But wait till you see how cute this costume is!

Did you know there are a lot of Scarecrow festivals in the world?

In England, the Urchfont Scarecrow Festival was established in the 1990s and has grown into a significant local event, attracting up to 10,000 people annually for the May Day Bank Holiday. It was the first Scarecrow Festival to be established in the whole of southern England. According to Guinness book of records, the largest gathering of scarecrows in one location is 3,812 and was achieved by National Forest Adventure Farm (UK) in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, UK, on August 2014. That is a lot of scarecrows in one place!

This Scarecrow quote is from the Wizard of Oz and is going to make you smile: “People without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t they?”

The crochet pattern of a Scarecrow costume gives you the instructions, so you can make a scarecrow hat, overalls, and little amigurumi corn and pumpkin prop. Perfect for Halloween and a photo prop for every little boy and girl.

The Etsy shop owner is Amanda Kuhn, from Virginia, United States. The name of the shop is AMKCrochet. Amanda’s specialty are crochet patterns in Newborn Photo Props.

    I really enjoyed reading your article on Halloween crochet patterns for baby boys. It is surprising what you can achieve with a little imagination. My partner does quite a lot of crocheting and I am wondering if you could scale up some of the patterns for an older boy? My son is 7 and I am sure he would love some of your designs. Thanks in advance, Andrew

    1. Hi Andrew. 

      Thank you. I am sure these patterns could be scaled up, but you should ask the designers. I am sorry I can’t help you more with this. But I will look for more crochet patterns for bigger boys, and I will let you know when I publish the post. Thank you for your interest.
