Howdy! Happy second week of Halloween… er I mean October. 😀
I might have said last week, I know I’ve said it on other social media, this will be my last Halloween themed design. Sadly, I just have to move on to Winter designs. I know! I’m so sad too. That’s why I wanted to go out with an adorable bang – candy corn earrings.
These earrings are super easy, cute, and you can make as many as you want. They’re large enough to use as decorations too!

I really hope you like these lil’ cuties and make a pair or 5. 😀

You can purchase a downloadable pdf in my Ravelry shop for $.50.

Materials 

Gauge

  • 9 rows x 10 sc = 1″
  • The gauge is not critical – just make sure your tension is tight enough so the stuffing doesn’t show.

  • Ch: Chain
  • St: Stitch
  • Slip St: Slip StitchRavelry link
  • Sc: Single Crochet

Notes

  • The ch 1, at the beginning of the rows does not count as a stitch.
  • This pattern is worked in the round with a slip st into the first st (of the row) at the end of the row.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up, in the round with a slip st into the first st of the row.
  • I suggest the use of the invisible sc2tog for this pattern. This is not explicitly stated below.
  • Color A is off yellow color B is orange, and color C is white.

Fasten off color C while leaving a 4″ – 6″ tail so you can close the opening on the earring.

– Closing –
With your needle, weave back and forth through the scs from row 22 until you get back to where you started, pull the yarn until you close the hole at the top of your candy corn. Weave your needle back and forth through the stitches as many times as you need to make sure row 22 is secure. The photos below show what I mean by weaving your needle over/ under the scs from row 22 to close the top.
