Yup! It’s the beginning of September and I’m already crafting for Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday and I plan on celebrating it for two whole months! :D Here is the first of several Halloween crafts I plan on sharing. I hope you enjoy this cyclops candy corn crochet pattern! This is an excellent beginner amigurumi project, by the way, offering a chance to practice both increasing & decreasing!
● Size E crochet hook
● Yarn needle
● (1) 15mm safety eye
● Felt scraps for the mouth (black & white)
● Glue for attaching the mouth
● Worsted Weight Yarn in White, Orange, & Yellow
Yarn used in example:
Caron Simply Soft in White (CA), Melon (CB), Lemon (CC)
ch – Chain
rnd – Round
sc – Single Crochet
ea – Each
sc2tog – 2 Single Crochets Together (Decrease)
rep – Repeat
FO – Finish Off
CA – Color A (white)
CB – Color B (orange)
CC - Color C (yellow)
This pattern is worked in rounds using single crochets. Do not join at the end of rounds. You’ll probably want to use a stitch marker to mark your rounds. Gauge is not important but remember to keep your stitches tight.
