These little guys are a dieter’s best friend. No calories! You can make a whole group of them for a cute little Halloween centerpiece. This free candy corn crochet pattern is quick to work up – you can make one of these little cuties in about 30-40 minutes.
I think this would be a great project to help your daughter or granddaughter learn to crochet. My 11 year old has been begging to learn. I think I might help her make a couple for her room. She loves to decorate her dressing for each holiday and season!
Finished project is approx 3 inches tall.
- black, white, orange, and yellow worsted weight yarn
- 6 mm safety eyes
- Size F Crochet Hook (I like these Crochet Dude hooks that have padded handles.)
