Here is a quick and easy project to kick off the holiday season! With just two simple crochet coils, you can make Candy Canes! And in any size. All you have to do is make the starting chain as long as you want. Perfect for ornaments, bunting, gift toppers, home decor, wreaths, and more! You can even make them into a circle for a tiny wreath ornament as well!
I am trying my best to provide you with both video and photo tutorials these days so here is a quick little video of the crochet candy canes! Keep in mind that you can use a variety of bendable wires for the center of your candy cane (floral wire, jewelry wire, pipe cleaners, bobby pins, etc).
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Berry Red and White. Shop all colors at Yarnspirations.com
– Size H Crochet Hook.
– Floral Wire, Jewelry Wire, Pipe Cleaner, Bobby Pin, or some time of Bendable Wire!
– Tapestry Needle
Candy Cane Coils:
Make one with Red and one with White
Chain 26, 2 SC in second chain from hook and rest of the way down chain. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Twist the two coils around each other!
Stick bendable wire through coils and shape candy cane. If using a pipe cleaner you may have more luck twisting your coils around it first.
So quick and easy! Looking forward to sharing many Christmas Crochet projects with you over the next two months!!
Well, these are just adorable! Thanks for the idea!

When I hit the print button only the picture and your conditions of sale were on it, even when I hit my own print-friendly button. I copied and pasted into a Word document and got it there. Love them. Thanks
Same here. Print Friendly doesn’t work correctly.
