Candy Corn Crochet

I love Candy Corn!!

Candy Corn is my weakness! If you mix them with salted peanuts in a container, and let them sit for a few days, it will taste like a payday candy bar, another weakness!


Payday candy bars and candy corn are my two favorite candies.

I no longer eat candy corn and paydays, and I hear that in Germany candy corn is a banned product. It seems the yellow food dye causes cancer. OH WELL...if you can't consume candy corn, why not indulge in Candy Corn Crochet!!!


Every year I come up with a Candy Corn design, and this year it is Candy Corn Shoes, and here is the pattern for you to enjoy!!

Button Application

Lay three buttons on a table or mat, lining them up evenly so that they are lightly touching, making sure to line up all holes evenly.


                                                                                    

Tear off a 6” piece of scotch tape, and place over the buttons, as pictured below.


                                                                                  

Then pick up the scotch tape, with the buttons sticking to it, and place the tape with buttons, in position on the shoe, in the place that you desire. 

                                                                               
                                                                 
Thread your needle and tie a large knot in your thread tail, to keep it from pulling through, and proceed to sew the buttons in place, leaving the scotch tape intact, to keep the buttons from moving. (I will take a stitch in each button at the beginning, this holds them in place better, because they can still shift and move even with the tape application) When you are finished sewing on the buttons, gently peel the scotch tape off of the buttons and shoe.

Crocheted Pumpkins!! I love pumpkins!!! Free Pattern!

I recently viewed a set of crocheted pumpkins on the web that were absolutely gorgeous! Unfortunately there was a language barrier that google translator wasn't able to help with.  So I wrote a pattern for myself, and for you!



A friend encouraged me to figure out how to make these pumpkins, and WOW!!! I could not quit making them. New designs kept swirling around in my head!!!!

Modern colors, Traditional colors.....



 Shabby colors.....


And the embellishments....oh my mind was spinning, and I am afraid it hasn't stopped! 



                                                                       

I LOVE them plain, and if you have modern decor, the gray and mustard pumpkins are perfect!




Adding other dark colors to the gray set looks wonderful!!!

Adding embellishments can add a country look to the dark pumpkins!



Putting a big pile of pumpkins together, in every different color and embellishment is fun too!!


I LOVE THESE PUMPKINS!!!




                

  


     
                       Pretty Pumpkins!!!

  Itty Bitty Pumpkin    “H” hook
                                                      




Round 1: CH 2, SC 7x in 2nd CH from hook, join with SLP ST to beg. SC. (You will bypass Beg. CH 1, and it will recede to the back of work, making the seam less noticeable)

Round 2:  CH 1, 2 SC in joining st, 2 SC in nxt st, and in each st around; join with SLP  ST to beg. SC (14 SC)


Round 3: CH 1, SC in joining st, 2 SC in nxt st; *SC in nxt st, 2 SC in nxt st* Repeat between *  * 5 more x ; join w/SLP ST in top of first SC made (21 SC)

Round 4: CH 1, SC in joining st, SC in nxt st, 2 SC in nxt st;  *SC in nxt st (2x), 2 SC in nxt st* Repeat between *  * 5 more x; join w/SLP ST in top of first SC made (28 SC)

Round 6 - 11: CH 1, SC in joining st, and in each st around; join w/SLP ST in top of first SC made (35 SC)

Note, if you would like a taller pumpkin, add more rows here….just crochet until you are content. One of my testers added HDC rows at this point, to get the height she wanted.

Decrease rows follow, you may start stuffing your pumpkin at this point, but there will be an opening at the end to finish stuffing your pumpkin. You will close the hole after stuffing is complete.

Round 12: CH 1, SC in joining st, SC in nxt st (2 x), SC DEC; *SC in nxt st (3x), SC DEC* Repeat between *  *  5 more x; join w/SLP ST in top of first SC made (28 SC)

Round 14: CH 1, SC in joining st, SC DEC; *SC in nxt st, SC DEC* Repeat between *  * 5 more x; join w/SLP ST in top of first SC made (14 SC)

Round 15: CH 1, SC DEC in joining st;  *SC DEC* Repeat between *  *  5 more x; join w/slp st in top of first SC made, end off by pulling yarn through last st made, leaving a 36” to 42” tail for sewing through the center and around the pumpkin, picture tutorial will be at the end of the pattern (7 SC)


Stem   “I” Hook

Round 1: CH 2, SC 5x in 2nd CH from hook, join with SLP ST to beg. SC

Round 2:  CH 1, SC in joining st; 2 SC in nxt st; SC in nxt st; 2 SC in nxt st; SC in last st: join with SLP ST to beg. sc (7SC)


Round 3: CH 1, SC in joining st and in each st around, join w/ SLP ST to beg. SC (7 SC)

You can add another row here if you would like a taller stem.

Next, take the beginning tail and the ending tail, and tie them together, pulling the beginning tail just enough to flatten out and shape the top of your stem.

Then stuff the yarn ends back up inside, and glue the stem onto the pumpkin.

You can stuff the stem with polyfil, and sew it on if you would like. Although I glued a stem to a pumpkin and when I didn’t like the color, I thought it could be pulled off. Nope!! It would not come off without tearing up the pumpkin…so hot glue and yarn, go well together…who knew?

Tutorial on pumpkin shaping

Start stuffing and shaping your pumpkin.


You will need to close this hole up, once the pumpkin is stuffed to the firmness that you desire. (I like my pumpkins semi-firm. IMPORTANT NOTE: Use your finger to poke a hole through the center of the stuffing, so your needle can go through without getting stuck on your stuffing)

Insert the hook in the stitch closest to ending stitch.


                                                       
Using the yarn tail, draw up a loop.



  Then begin to SC DEC around the opening.
                                                                 

Close the hole by joining with a SLP ST to the opposite side, and pull the yarn through to finish closing the hole. This is the bottom of your pumpkin. You will have a very long tail of yarn.
  
                                                                                        

Thread your tail into the yarn needle, insert the needle in the center 
                           

Push the needle through the center to the opposite side or "the top" of your pumpkin, pulling the yarn through the center of pumpkin, making a dent.

                                                                   

The first dent sequence, will dent ½ of the pumpkin. You do this by wrapping the yarn completely around the pumpkin, coming back to the top, making sure your pumpkin is halved and evenly dented.

                                                               

Insert your needle back into the center hole.

                                                                 

Go completely through and out the center bottom of the pumpkin, pulling and shaping to make the dents secure.

                                                                     
 


Continue passing through the middle of your pumpkin, pulling and wrapping your yarn, to make the dents.

                                                           


I use the clock method of shaping, 12 to 6, 3 to 9 and so on..

                                                                 



Continue shaping….

                                                               


Until your are happy with your pumpkin, and tie off and secure your yarn end at the bottom.

                                                                       

If you have enough yarn left, you can back over your dents one more time. Then sew your stem in the dent at the top of the pumpkin, or use hot glue…I like hot glue!

                                                                   

 

And then embellish to your hearts content!!!
