Ghouls, graveyards and goblins, Halloween can be harrowing! But where there's creep, there's also merriment: parades, painted faces and candy corn!
Candy corn, this most classic of Halloween goodies, also happens to be one heck of a good looking object! Like all of our most cherished holiday candies - candy canes, gelt, jelly beans - candy corns aren't really loved for their flavor. They're adored because they cause us to conjure the rituals and details of the day, to relive in our minds a lifetime of Halloweens. It's not the power of sugar; it's the power of good design!
These little knit sweeties will ensure that candy corn is a part of your Halloween tradition, year after year. Line them up on your windowsill; arrange them on your mantle with some candles; or pop them into a big bowl on your hall table. They're kinda irresistible.
I knit up my set of Candy Corns with Brown Paper Packages' Trio, a beautiful silk and wool blend. The shine of the silk brings an unexpected elegance to these little guys, which I love! And Trio is actually a needlepoint yarn, making it the perfect choice for knitting up palm-sized objects like these!
