Pattern Design + Construction:

Garlands and coasters are some of my favorite holiday crochet projects to design. They're a quick and easy way to add a handmade, affordable and festive touch of décor to any space. These versatile crochet candy corns are adorable hung as bunting over a buffet or mantle; I'm thinking Halloween party vibes. They're also the perfect size for Halloween crochet coasters or cute little gift tag accessories!


Each Crochet Candy Corn is worked in flat rows of single crochet with a border added to the edges. For my garland the candy corns are strung together using jute, but you could also use yarn or ribbon. The finished candy corn measures approximately 5.5 inches tall. You could easily create larger candy corns by increasing the size of your crochet hook and yarn weight.

Yarn:

For this free pattern, we'll be using medium (4) worsted weight yarn. I really enjoy using worsted weight yarn for most of my projects because of the versatility as well as the availability in most craft stores. Worsted weight yarn also tends to come in very affordable brands. You can easily substitute with other brands and colors as long as the ounces per gram are similar. I've used the following colors for this project:

  • I Love This Yarn, Medium 4, 7 oz / 199 g, in the color 20 / Ivory

  • I Love This Yarn, Medium 4, 7 oz / 199 g, in the color 260 / Sungold

  • I Love This Yarn, Medium 4, 7 oz / 199 g, in the color 260 / Burnt Pumpkin

I also think good substitutes in Red Heart Super Saver would be Carrot, Gold, and White.
