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.

k = knit

st(s) = stitch(es)

– 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.
