Candy Corn Applique

Crochet Candy Corn Applique | FREE Pattern | Colie's Crochet | coliescrochet.comOne of the things I look forward to most about autumn is candy corns being for sale in stores. Now they come in every flavor and color combo you can dream up but I still love the plain old honey flavored ones with the classic white-orange-yellow colors. When I was thinking of fall items to make for my shop and new patterns to create, the candy corn was a must! The pattern for the hat pictured will be coming soon so you’ll have to keep your eye on the blog!
