I don’t really even like eating candy corn, but I’ve had it on the brain lately since I’ve been working on a really fun project I’ll share with you soon. Candy corn is a great motif for knitting because it’s so graphic, and you can use the shape, the colors or both and everyone knows what you’re trying to express.
Here’s a collection of great projects inspired by candy corn.
These candy corn earrings from Zombies, Knitting and Time Well Wasted can be knit in almost no time when you need something cute to wear to a Halloween party or any other time during the fall.
Speaking of baby gear, this baby cocoon and coordinating cap from Red Heart would be a perfect first Halloween costume for a new little one.
The candy corn illusion dishcloth by Rhonda K. White is a fun way to play with that technique.
Kristin M. Roach’s candy corn creature would make fun table decor or a little gift for your pumpkin. And these little candy corns from the Purl Bee are so cute I’ll bet you can’t knit just one. For a super-tiny version, check out the ones from Mochimochi Land.
The candy corn mittens from Justine Birmingham are a great addition to a costume if you live somewhere that’s cold come Halloween. (Ravelry download)
And I have a cute little candy corn goody bag over at About that you can use for a little treat for your kid, or make a bunch for a holiday party.
