Things have been stressful lately and I needed to make up something quick to help me relax.  We don't have many Halloween decorations around our apartment yet, so I figured a cute little candy corn would work out perfectly.

(thumbnails can be clicked on for a larger picture)



Picture of it before I added the face.



Picture of it with a face!

I made it in a couple of hours and have the directions written down.  If somebody wanted, I could write them up quickly (but really, it's not hard to make at all).  My roommate loves it and has already stolen it...

Comments appreciated!  Smiley

***edit***  Here's the pattern as requested.  If you have any questions on it, let me know (also if you think I've typed up something wrong as nobody's made it from my typed up directions yet). 

Couple points of clarification in case people can't understand my notation.  Asterisks (*) indicated the section they're surrounding (which should be in parenthesis or brackets) are to be repeated and will be followed by the number of times it should be done total (x2 means you should crochet everything in the parenthesis twice total).  Numbers at the end in parenthesis indicated how many stitches should be in that row.  Also, in round 32, I start using both parenthesis and brackets to indicate parts that should be repeated.  Work through everything in the brackets first, then repeat it all again according to the number of times indicated (in both cases, the instructions should be crocheted twice or repeated once after you've worked through it the first time).

Hopefully those instructions will head off any confusion over the pattern (I know how frustrating it can be to try and make something and have to frog it because you didn't understand the pattern) though it really isn't that difficult so you might not even need them!  Good luck everybody!  Grin

R36: *[sc 1, sc2tog, *(sc2tog)* x2, sc2tog, sc 1]* x2 (12)
R37: sc around (12)
Cut yarn, weave in end, and pull hole shut

Also, I figured it was worth noting that I stuffed mine and then put some pellets in it too to help weigh it down so it would stand on its own.  I made mine with a G hook and had some gaps at the bottom that were big enough for the pellets to fall out, so I hollowed out the inside of the stuffing, poured the pellets in there, then put more stuffing in the bottom to plug it up and keep the pellets from falling out before I closed up the bottom.

It's so cute! I love the face you put on it. I've been meaning to make one of these forever, but I always forget to buy orange yarn. By the time I get around to it, it won't be Fall anymore... not that that'll stop me.  Smiley

Luckily I have a stash of every basic color built up so I already had the colors I needed (guess that's what you get when crocheting stuff in rainbow colors!) Plus, candy corn is good at least through Thanksgiving, right? Wink

I don't like to eat candy corn but this little project makes me smile - a perfect Halloween decoration that fits in between the ghouls and ghosts.

Thanks! I was looking for something still in the spirit but easier to make up (and perhaps, a tad forgotten) Smiley

Pattern is now posted.  Again, if my instructions or too confusing or possibly wrong at a point, just let me know and I can write the confusing part out for you (if it's over repeated sections), fix it, or do whatever I can to help!

I actually added a part at the end now about stuffing it that says that I did indeed use a G hook.  That's always my go to hook size, sometimes even despite patterns specifying another one! haha

I guess it's just a lucky guess! I wanted it to be a tighter stitch so I went a couple of sizes smaller than I usually use Smiley

Looks great and glad to hear I typed up the pattern fine!  And I've seen some pretty wonky candy corns so I think yours will fit in just fine Wink
