Yellow, orange, and white triangles are chained together to complete this easy garland pattern. Based on the traditional fall candy, this seasonal garland is great for Halloween and the entire Fall season.
Candy corn is one of my oldest daughter’s favorite candies…. year round. One day she was snacking on a handful while I was trying to decide what fall crochet patterns to design and this pattern was born.
How to Decorate with a Crochet Garland.
I have it hanging on my fireplace mantel right now but you could also put it in a doorway, along the top of a bookcase, or along a TV cabinet. These crochet pumpkins would be the perfect complement to your garland.
This pattern is easy to customize. If you want your garland a little longer, make 9 triangles. If you want it a little shorter crochet 5 or even just 3. I do suggest sticking to an odd number though. I originally had 6 but the general consensus at my house was that it needed one more so there would be a center point.
How to Crochet a Garland
First, you need to start with your candy corns. These are just basic triangles with a border. The border is worked so that the color you are using matches the color of the triangle part. This combined with the stripes in the pattern makes for lots of color changes. To avoid so many ends, try using the magic knot. It truly is magic!!
After all your triangles are made, we need to connect them on a chain. To do this I started making a chain and as I went along, I placed a single crochet in the top of each candy corn. I left a long tail at the beginning and end so I could hang it up.
