I’ve said this many times in the past, but I hate candy corn. I think it’s super gross and I don’t get the appeal, at all… that being said, I love to decorate with it. Nothing says Halloween quit like candy corn, right? It’s super iconic and the colors are bright and happy, perfect if you don’t want gloomy Halloween decorations.
For this design I wanted to do a fun pattern of candy corn, not just one big one. I hope you like it and make a bunch for Halloween!

Materials:

  • US G (4.00) mm crochet hook
  • Worsted weight/ size #4/ medium weight yarn
    • 1.6 Oz/ 77 yards
    • I used Sugar and Cream yarn for this (3 colors)
    • For hot pads or pot holders, use cotton yarn because acrylic will burn/ melt
  • Yarn needleRavelry link

Gauge:

  • 4.5” x 4.5” = 19 dcs x 9 rows

Terms/ stitches:

  • RS: right side
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked back and forth in rows, with a turn at the end/ beginning.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up.
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the sides portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parenthesis means.
  • Rather than changing, cutting, and weaving in the ends of all the colors, the yarn is carried through the bags in the photos. Here’s a great tutorial on color changes. In this pattern, the active yarn is worked over the inactive.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.
  • You can replace the chain row with a foundation single crochet row.
  • Color A: is brown, Color B: is orange, Color C: is yellow, and Color D: is white.
