Crochet Pattern: Candy Corn Pocket

By Emilee Gettle – 14 Comments
Fall to me is beautiful leaves, the smell of wood smoke, apples fresh from the orchard, pumpkin pie and a handful of candy corn. Growing up I could not wait until the stores started carrying this delicious seasonal treat. So when my mom came to visit this week we made a candy corn pocket, which has a million uses! It’s perfect for holding your cell phone, dollars and small necessities! Children love this project. Make up a few for your favorite little friends and fill them with the real deal: candy corn! Perfect for fall bazaars and harvest festivities too.

Crochet Pattern: Candy Corn Pocket
Make 2
Row 1: with orange, ch 3, sc in second ch from hook, 2 sc in next ch, ch 1, turn: 3 sc
Row 2-10: sc in each sc across until 1 sc remains, 2 sc in last sc, ch 1, turn.
Row 11-12: sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn: 10 sc. Then, finish off.
Row 13-17: with yellow, sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn: 10 sc.
Finish off.

Starting with orange, whip stitch each side of the candy corn together, ending where the yellow begins. Then with yellow, whip stitch each yellow side, leaving the bottom open to create a pocket.

Using a needle and thread sew the velco dots on the inside of the candy corn for a closure.

    Isn’t there white on a candy corn?

  3. Emilee says:


    Tis true! Thanks for pointing that out… You could easily add white by starting the first 3-4 rows with white yarn and then switch to orange. 🙂

  4. Ika Masume says:

    Thanks for noticing that! Candy corn isn’t candy corn with out white 🙂

  5. Lyn says:

    Love it! I like the 2 colors…!

  6. Diane (UK) says:

    I keep seeing patterns based around candy corn, and seeing people talking about it online, but here in the UK, I’ve never come across it, and I’m curious! Does anyone fancy telling me what it is exactly, and why the three colours and in triangles? Thanks in advance!

  7. knitmadmum says:

    Hi, I second Dianes query! Is candy corn a hard candy, or is it like popcorn in a triangle shape? Whats it taste of? I’ve never seen any corn look like that, so I’m curious too! I love al the Halloween items, and I have made the applique set in a thicker yarn as coasters. They are also good stuck on the inside of the door (if its glass!) as decorations

    Candy corn is 100% sugar and creamy,not too soft,but chewy and delicious! Swwet, not salty,not at all like popcorn. More like a caramel. Okay,off to go buy some…!

  9. Diane (UK) says:

    Thanks for telling us what the sweet/candy is like to eat, but how did it get called ‘candy corn’ if there’s no corn, and how/why did it acquire its shape and colouring? Also, if it’s just sugar, why is it a seasonal treat? Sorry, just too curious for my own good sometimes, but I’m really intrigued by this – the fact that it’s 100% sugar and caramel-like hasjust raised far more questions about it in my mind! LOL!!

    Hi Diane,

    Candy corn is supposed to look like a kernel of corn. 🙂 “Indian” corn (this is real corn grown in gardens around the US) which is available in the fall has graduating shades of orange, cream and yellow on each kernel and I’m thinking this is where the color combination came from. It became a seasonal fall treat because of the indian corn that is dried and used for decorations in the fall up until our US Thanksgiving holiday. 🙂 It is delicious! They make pumpkins too, and sometimes you can buy candy corn and candy pumpkins mixed.

    Thanks,Emilee…you beat me to it!

  12. Diane (UK) says:

    Thanks! Now I understand, and it’s so nice not to be the one who doesn’t know what everyone’s talking about, or not knowing what these 3 coloured triangles actually are! LOL! It all makes sense now, at long last! : )
