Design Story and Inspiration for the Candy Corn Crochet Pattern
A few years ago I designed a candy corn treat bag with leftover yarn from my other projects. I hadn’t ever tried candy corn amigurumi, and with Halloween coming up I wanted some fun projects for the kiddos.
With four little boys in the house we love Halloween around here – and all of us like candy corn! I know it’s kind of a love or hate thing, but we are on the love side and pick some up every year (although not too much!).
These would be great for gifts, as fall or Halloween decor or for a fall-themed get together. One at each place setting would be amazing for a dinner!
Yarn Options for this Candy Corn Crochet Pattern
One of the best things about this pattern (besides how cute it is!) is that it is a great stash buster. You can use any weight yarn with an appropriate hook, and really any color combo you like. Who says candy corn has to be orange, yellow and white?
I used leftover worsted weight yarn to create mine and went with a size G (4.00mm) crochet hook. If you change the weight of the yarn, look for the recommended hook size on the yarn label and go down a size or two.
When crocheted with worsted weight yarn these are right at 3 inches long. If you’d like them smaller, feel free to use a lighter weight yarn with a much smaller hook.

Crochet Candy Corn Pattern Details
This project is worked in the round from the white tip to the end beginning with a magic circle. Then, it is stuffed lightly with fiberfill and seamed closed.
The seam can be whip stitched as shown in the video, or you can use the mattress stitch or even slip stitch or single crochet it closed.
The first round is single crochet to close up the end nicely, the rest of the pattern is simple double crochet.
