Happy *just* about October everyone
I must admit, it’s my favorite time of year. I think I’ve said this before, but there’s so much to love about Fall and Halloween. The colors, the flavors, the crispness in the air (waiting for that any day now) and the decorations.
This week’s pattern is for the CAL Central Halloween CAL brings all that love to you from me.

Of course I’m going to jump at an opportunity to join a Halloween CAL, it’s so much my “brand” and it is also so fun to see all the cute projects! For this post I wanted to make something fun and cute that you could get creative with. Enter, the Candy Corn-O-Lantern amigurumi.

This little mischievous “corn on the shelf” is a lot easier than you think. Minimal color changes in the color work section (or you could skip over that entirely and just do 2 Back pieces & sew the face on separately), and very simple assembly. Also, if you have a large candy corn you don’t have to eat candy corn (which I do not, let the record show I find it disgusting). Or you could make bunting out of the candy corn Front/Back pieces (which would be so cute). Just have fun with it!

No matter how you get creative, I hope you give this design a chance. Or you could browse some of my other candy corn designs for other ideas. Don’t forget to join the CAL Central Facebook group, use the hashtag #CALCentral and #HalloweenCAL2019 on social media, and pop over to Underground Crafter to enter to win some goodies for this CAL.

Happy treats friends!

Materials

  • US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Worsted/ medium/ size #4 weight yarn
  • Yarn needle
  • Poly Fill

Gauge

  • 17 sc x 18 rows = 4”
    Ravelry link

Terms/ Stitches used

  • Magic circle
  • RS: right side
  • Rnd: round
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Sc2tog: single crochet 2 sts together

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in 4 sections: the Front, the Back, the Securing, and the Arms/Legs. The Front and Back sections are worked in rows back and forth and the Securing and Arms/Legs are worked in the round with a slip st into the first st of the row.
  • The ch-1 at the beginning of the row or rnd does not count as a stitch.
  • The Front section is where the colorwork/face/tapestry section is and every stitch is a single crochet. For that section only, directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many scs to make.
  • For the front the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • The instructions that read (sc2tog + a number) or (a number + sc2tog) mean that you sc2tog the first or last two sts of the row and work scs in the number of stitches indicated.
  • In the photos: color A is yellow (RHSS in Bright Yellow), color B is black (RHSS in Black), color C is orange (RHSS in Pumpkin), and color D is white (RHSS in White).

Finished product dimensions (measurements may vary by gauge and yarn used)

Securing
For this section you’re scing the Front and Back piece together using the colors A, C, and D in the areas that match the colors. Be sure to stuff your candy corn before closing completely
Lay your Front and Back pieces together so that the wrong sides are touching. Create a slipknot on your hook with color A and with the RS of the Front facing you, sc into the row 13 color A row end (you will be working down the row ends towards row 1), sc into the next 12 row ends, ch 1 at the corner and rotate your piece, sc into the next 30 sts (the other side of the original ch row), ch 1 at the corner and rotate your piece, sc into the next 13 row ends, switch to color C (fasten off color A) and sc into the next 13 row ends, switch to color D (and fasten off color C) and sc into the next 13 row ends, sc into the 4 sts of row 40, sc into the next 13 row ends, (don’t forget to stuff your candy corn at this point), switch to color C (and fasten off color D) and sc into the next 13 row ends, slip st into the first st – 112 sc, 2 ch-1 spaces
Fasten off, weave in all your ends.
Stuff a little bit of stuffing into the Arms/Legs and use the tails you left to secure them to the body in your preferred method of seaming.

Tada! There it is, the Candy Corn-O-Lantern! I hope you love it and use the hashtag #DivineDebris on Instagram and I’ll share it in my stories!
