This Candy Corn plush is such a fun project!  Even if you aren’t a big fan of eating candy corn, I think that we can all agree that this plushie is adorable!

I kind of created this little plush on a whim.  I had seen on Facebook and Instagram where everyone is making all their fall things and getting ready for fall markets.  And I thought that a cute candy corn plushie would be perfect to make and share with everyone.

The finished product turned out super cute making it with Premier Parfait Chunky yarn and it’s even cuter when you add the safety eyes and embroider a mouth.

What Yarn Should You Use to Make a Candy Corn Plushie?

I chose to use Premier Parfait Chunky yarn.  It is a #6 Super Bulky yarn that is made out of 100% polyester.  The different colors that I used where Yellow, Mango and White.  

Premier Parfait Chunky has become a very popular yarn for crocheting amigurumi and stuffed plushies.  I see so many people using it to make all kinds of stuffed animals to sell at craft shows and markets.  

Kids and adults both love these little items and they can help to draw interest to your booth at a craft show.

Each candy corn is about 5” tall when completely finished and stuffed.  So they are the perfect size for smaller pieces to have at a craft show to be able to sell reasonably priced.

You could also use a #4 worsted weight yarn to make your candy corn, but the finished item will be much smaller than when made with the parfait yarn.  I have not yet made this free pattern in a medium weight yarn so I’m not exactly sure what size it would come out to when finished.

This would be a great project to use scrap yarn for.  It takes such a small amount of yarn to make each candy corn.

Is it Hard to Crochet a Candy Corn Plush?

No, this plushie is pretty easy to crochet.  If you have a concept of crocheting plushies and a few basic amigurumi skills, then it will be a breeze to make this plush.  

Even if you have never crocheted amigurumi before, it only uses chain stitches and single crochet stitches.  So it would be a great beginner amigurumi pattern to start with!

Materials You Will Need to Crochet an Amigurumi Candy Corn

I already mentioned the type of yarn you will be needing in the traditional candy corn colors.  The other materials you need are 16mm size safety eyes, poly-fil, black embroidery thread and, of course, you will need a crochet hook and a yarn needle.

If you are wondering where I get my safety eyes from, I just order them off of Amazon.  They have a large selection and I ordered a set that has multiples of each size in a case.

    1. When I crochet the piece, I go through both loops and when I finish it off with a yarn needle and close the very top, I just go through the front loops.
