I love Fall and all the things that make it extra special like pumpkins and candy corn. I wanted to make a candy corn scarf , so I checked out a few on Etsy before making my own. I wanted one that wasn't your typical bright white, orange, and yellow. One that I could enjoy wearing all through Fall. I ended up choosing ARAN (a winter off white color), CARROT (surprisingly the Pumpkin color at the store was to bright), and CORNMEAL (a soft not bright yellow). I found my 100% Acrylic machine washable yarn at Walmart. I bought one roll /364 yards of each color. You will have more then enough yarn to make two scarves if you choose to (maybe more depending on size). I made mine extra big, measuring approximately 11 inches wide and 73 inches long (not counting tassels). I like a generous size scarf, living in Northern Cali where we have long cold snowy winters. Of course you could make a smaller scarf if you like for children, or even an extra wide shorter one to use as a wrap. I will be sharing a tutorial for two different types of candy corn inspired rings later this month :)
The lighting is making this look like a brighter white then it is in person.
The scarf is Aran color on both ends with matching tassels. I cut the tassels to form a point (like a candy corn has on top), longest in the middle, shortest at the ends, Two segments of Carrot color, and a middle segment of Cornmeal color. I used a 6.50 MM crochet needle for the entire scarf.
I want to state that I am in no way an expert at crochet. In fact I have never made anything from a pattern. My mom showed me years ago how to do some basic scarves, hats, and flowers. Instead of attempting to write a pattern (I have no idea what that would look like), let me just share this video I made to show you how I make a basic scarf.
Well I hope you found the video helpful.
(I realize watching someone crochet is about as fun as watching paint dry).
The brown dress and belt are both from Walmart. The cardigan is by Xhilaration, and I think is from Target.
The boots from Scheels, super comfortable.
The hair is super easy, twisted on both sides, and pulled into two messy low buns in the back.
You can find a tutorial for these earrings and more on my DIY page and available in my shop
Happy Fall Fashion!
