Happy Halloween!

My crochet habit continues… this time with crocheted candy corn!

I got the idea from the purl bee, but their pattern called for knitting, which my lovely crafting coworker has not yet convinced me to learn (and I’ve been having too much fun crocheting anyway). I figured it’d be easy enough to crochet one.

My first attempt looked more like a missile (according to Ryder), but I quickly resolved that by making two more. I started at the top with white yarn, crocheting in the round. The key to make them candy-corn-shaped is to make a one-stitch increase at each of the two sides on each round. This gives them the classic slightly flattened shape while still having some dimension. Happy Halloween!
