Candy Cane Cover

Saturday, November 29, 2014

I like to make and give little holiday/seasonal gifts for friends and coworkers; so this year I designed a candy cane cover that fits the bill perfectly. There was also the added bonus that they are very quick and easy to make.

  • Lion Brand Heartland yarn - Redwood
  • Sulky Holoshimmer thread - (silver #6001)
  • Crochet hook, size G (4.0 mm)

    Finishing Materials:
  • 6"-7" Candy canes
  • 3/8" Silver ribbon
  • Tapestry needle
  • Sissors

  • The gauge is not important to overall size
  • Work the stitches holding the yarn and thread together as one.

    Candy Cane Pattern:
    Row 1: Ch 33; dc in 4th chain from hook (first 3 chains count as dc), [ch1, skip next ch, (dc, ch1, dc) in next ch] 4 times, (ch 1, skip next ch, dc in next ch) 10 times, dc in last ch. (21 dc)

    Row 2: Ch 1, sc in same space, * [ch 1 (dc, ch1, dc) in next ch1 space], (ch 1, sc) in next ch1 space* repeat from * to * 9 times ending by skipping dc and sc in last dc.

    Row 3: *Ch 3, sl st in next ch 1 space*, repeat from * to * around ending with sc in last st. Fasten off and weave in ends.

  • Thread candy cane through row 1.
  • Cut 9" of ribbon and tie a Martha's favorite bow where desired.
