Halloween is sneaking up fast like a silly little ghost! Get ready for it with a zero calorie, zero stress knit: by popular demand, here’s the pattern for Tiny Candy Corn!

Finished Size: About 3/4 inch tall

Fingering-weight yarn in yellow, orange, and white, plus small amount of black (Samples made with Cascade Heritage yarn)

Needles: Set of size 1 US (2.25 mm) double-pointed needles

Other materials:
Small tapestry needle
Small amount of stuffing or scrap yarn

Gauge: Doesn’t matter, as long as your stitches are on the tight side.

CO = cast on

rnd = round

k = knit

st(s) = stitch(es)
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together (decreases by 1 stitch)

- This candy corn is definitely not edible! Be sure to keep it away from small children.
- When switching colors, wrap the old color around the new color once on inside of piece. Then after 2 rnds, pull loose ends tightly to secure.

——– Pattern starts here! ——–

With Yellow, CO 14 sts onto 3 needles, leaving a long tail for seaming, and join in a rnd.
Rnds 1-3: Knit.
Switch to Orange.
Rnd 4: K2tog, k3, [k2tog] twice, k3, k2tog (10 sts).
Rnds 5-8: Knit.
Switch to White.
Rnd 9: [K2tog] 5 times (5 sts).
Rnd 10: Knit
Break yarn, and draw tightly through sts with tapestry needle.


Turn piece over, and stuff lightly with polyester stuffing or yarn scraps. Pinch piece flat, then, using the long tail you left when casting on, sew the open end together with mattress stitch.

With Black, embroidery two tiny eyes using one stitch each.

Weave in loose ends.
