Friends meet this delightfully delicious Crochet Candy Corn: The perfect fall make you didn’t even know you needed on your crochet hook!

Sigh. I’m completely in love with these darling little candy corn amigurumi. Quick and fun to make out of scrap yarn, it is the perfect fall project

This little gem of a project is also perfect for practicing your amigurumi skills! Start with a magic ring and then increase gradually, while changing colors as you go. Work a few rounds without increasing.

Then a round worked in the back loop only (BLO) and a few round of single crochet decreases. I prefer the invisible decrease method, but you can use a normal crochet decrease if you like.

Take a moment to pop in those cutie pie safety eyes, stuff and finish off.

And voila.. your most adorable fall make ever!

Isn’t this cutie just adorable? I also love that this cute candy corn is a great scrap yarn stash buster. You can go bright and cheery with bright scrap orange yarn, yellow yarn and white yarn or more rustic with muted shades like those I used in my medium crochet pumpkin and small pumpkin.

I also kind of love that this adorable candy corn amigurumi can just tuck in about anywhere. It could brighten up your work space or snuggle up next to those crochet pumpkins and fall decor on your shelf or table.

My amigurumi candy corn pattern corn is made out of medium weight yarn for a fast and fun project. It is easily adaptable to other sizes too. Just change the yarn size for a smaller or bigger candy corn.  Be sure to choose a hook size that matches your yarn and perhaps adjust the size safety eyes.  In no time you can have candy corn friends all over your house!
