Round 1: Sc in second ch from hook and each chain across. (8)
Sc 3 times in the side of the starting chain.
Sc on opposite side of starting chain. (8)

Round 18: Sc2, sc2tog, sc2, sc2tog. (6)

Pull loop on hook to make a long loop, temporarily. This will prevent your stitches being pulled out while you stuff your candy corn. When I did this, the opening was enough to fit my finger. If yours is too tight, back out a round and stop at round 17, your candy corn will still turn out find. Stuff with stuffing. Then, fasten off, leaving a long tail. With blunt needle, sew through stitches at the top of the candy corn, cinching the top closed. Tie off and weave ends inside candy corn.

  1. HI! I wanted to make something for a friend’s baby. I am going to make this and put a bell in it, like a rattle. I’ll let you know how it turns out! Thank you for a great pattern.
