Crochet Candy Corn Bow

Crochet Halloween Candy Corn Bow

I am super excited for Halloween so I thought I would kick-start the season a little early by crocheting these adorable candy corn bows. These crochet candy corn bows are super easy to make and are a lovely accessory in your hair or as a bow-tie. You can also attach the bows to string and have them hanging around your home

Halloween is a great time of year for many reasons: fantastic decorations, great food and the company of family and friends. For this season I plan on posting a few crochet Halloween patterns such as a these Candy Corn Bows, Pumpkin Pouch, and matching Pumpkin and Witch Hat earrings and necklace to the blog and Youtube channel. The Pumpkin Pouch is a great gift to give your family and friends with a variety of treats inside and the Pumpkin and Witch Hat earrings and necklace set are fun, quick and easy to make and will make you stand out from the crowd every Halloween!

Crochet Candy Corn Bow Free Pattern

For this pattern, I will be crocheting the medium sized bow but the other bow sizes are listed below.

Using coloured yarn A, make a sl sknot
Ch 21 for medium sized bow    (or ch 11 = small bow, ch 31, large bow, or 41 extra large bow)

Row 1: Sk first ch from hook and into second ch Sc 1, *Sc 1 in each ch*, turn your work (20 Sc for medium bow) [10 Sc = small, 30 Sc = large, 40 Sc = extra large]
Row 2: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, turn your work (20 Sc)
Row 3: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, turn your work (20 Sc)
Row 4: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, change colour at end of row 4 to yarn B, turn your work (20 Sc)

With yarn B,
Row 5: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, turn your work (20 Sc)
Row 6: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, turn your work (20 Sc)
Row 7: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, turn your work (20 Sc)
Row 8: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, change colour at end of row 8 to yarn C, turn your work (20 Sc)

With yarn C,
Row 9: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, turn your work (20 Sc)
Row 10: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, turn your work (20 Sc)
Row 11: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, turn your work (20 Sc)
Row 12: Ch 1, into first st Sc 1, *Sc 1 into each st*, secure your work at end of row 12 (20 Sc)

Now you will have a rectangle with the 3 candy corn colours, white, orange and yellow. To make the shape of the bow you will need to pinch the orange section together, then fold the yellow and white sections upwards next to the orange section. Wrap either the white, orange or yellow yarn around the centre of the pinched bow (like in the photo) then tie the strands at the back together to secure. Or you can be creative and use all 3 colours at once to have a super colourful centre.

To finish just weave in all the ends.
