Crochet CandyCane



Crochet CandyCane


Video Tutorial: Crochet Candy Cane

Video Tutorial:  Left Hand Version 

Red Section
With red yarn Chain 50.

3 SC in each chain across. It will start to twist and be very uneven.

White Section
With white yarn Chain 50.

3 SC in each chain across. It will start to twist and be very uneven.


Straighten each individual section out so the twist is turning one way. Once that is accomplished, join the two sections together, twisting them together to form the candycane. Once they are evenly twisted, secure each end with yarn so they won't come apart. Sew in all the tails. Run a pipe cleaner through the center of the candycane. Twist the yarn section in the direction to tighten the yarn on the pipecleaner. This will grab the fibers of the pipecleaner tighten it up nice and neat. You can hotglue or dab craft glue to the pipecleaner and yarn so it will stay in place and not come apart. Shape project in to a candycane. I have found that fishing line or clear craft line will work very well for an invisible hanger.

  4. Just a note to let you know I'm using this pattern design w/red,white & blue to make a barber pole to wrap around a dowel for my crochet baby hat display entry for the Fiber Arts Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. The dowel will have one end in a styrofoam ball for hat and the other end in a base. Thanks for this great design. Maybe at Christmas I will actually make some candy canes!! Rose
