I made a couple of candy corns for my favorite little ladybug and mermaid (Louella and Chloe)
Although, I am aware that they do look a little bit like a Dorito chip.
Size 3 DPN’s
White, Orange, Yellow yarn
Small amount of stuffing
Cast on 6 Stitches in WHITE
Divide onto two DPN’s
Row 1: Knit 1 Make 1
Row 2: Knit all
Row 3: K1 M1, knit to last 2, M1 K1
Row 4: Knit all
(Repeat rows 3 and 4, changing colors as wanted for how big you want your candy corn, mine were about 10 rows of white, 15 rows or orange and 10 rows of yellow)
Once your candy corn is as big as you want it then K2T all around your last row. Stuff to desired fullness. Then use a 3 needle bind off (I find that this gives it the cleanest edges) Or, if you don’t want to do that you can always just bind off all stitches and then stuff, then sew him shut!
Embroider face on and you’re done!
That is adorable! I love candy corn and that is so cute 🙂 And I don’t think it looks like dorito’s at all! ha
omg, Ali! adorable! I love how most people (including me) would just think to knit sweaters, hats, mittens, blankets, but YOU knit everything under the sun! hammerhead sharks and seaweed and candy corn! you rock!
The Merbaby absolutely loves her candy corn. She is very thankful to have some form of candy that she can slobber all over. 🙂
Dorito’s 3D!! LOL!! No way, too cute!!! 🙂
They are adorable!!! Love them.
