Looking for cool Halloween and Thanksgiving decor? Candy Corn Garland is the perfect decoration for your mantle or window. Bonus? So EASY to crochet!
Every year, I wade into the great candy corn debate. Some people love it and others hate it. Me? I am one of those who LOVE candy corn. So much that every single Halloween I will over indulge on it and end up with a massive sugar hangover. Every. Single. Halloween.
Yeah my husband gives me that same look too.
Luckily for me, this candy corn crochet garland won’t trigger a headache, even if I crochet too many (If that is even possible).
The candy corn crochet pattern works up super fast and doesn’t require a lot of yarn. This could be a great stash busting project. The pattern uses only simple stitches: chain, DC, and DC2TOG. That is it!
NOTE: The materials noted in this section are to make 1 candy corn crochet triangle. I will give my totals in yards for making 8, however you may need more or less yarn depending on how many candy corn crochet triangles you need.
- Yellow: 2 yards
- Orange: 3 yards
- White: 1 yard
What I used (8 Triangles)

Row 3. DC2TOG, DC in next 19 stitches, DC2TOG. Ch1. Turn = 21 DC
Change to Orange
Row 4. DC2TOG, DC in next 17 stitches, DC2TOG. Ch1. Turn = 19 DC

Fasten off and weave in all ends.
Block your triangles. This will allow you to fix the corners to look sharper and relax the stitches.
Join chain to first yellow corner of the triangle
SC across using the join color across the top of the triangle
Repeat with the next triangle.
End with a Ch 5. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
