Finally! A piece of candy corn that I actually like ♥ I don’t know about you but candy corn and I have never been close friends. Nevertheless, I’m sooo grateful for it because it gave me the Halloween inspo that I needed to come up with this adorable design.

READ ENTIRE SECTION BEFORE PLACING EYE BACKINGS:
After completing Round 18, stuff your work, identify Round 5, and place the first safety eye between hdc inc #3 and #4, place the second safety eye between hdc inc #7 and #8. Remove both safety eyes, notice that they have shifted the stitches and each left a noticeable hole.
Follow the tutorial below to sculpt the eye indents:
Repeat that process two or three more times, slightly pulling the yarn to secure the eye sculpting. After hiding the yarn ends, place the safety eyes back in their place, remove the stuffing, and secure the safety eye’s backings.
Repeat twice to get two ears:
- Ch 4, skip the first chain and 1 sc in the second chain, 3 dc into the third chain, and 1 sc into the last chain. Chain 1 and fasten off, leave a 5 inch long tail for sewing. Pin the ears to the top of the head and once you like the alignment, sew them on.
Using a yarn needle and a small strand of pink yarn, draw a “Y” at the tip of Cavy Corn’s face to add a nose and a mouth.
Repeat 4 times for a total of 4 paws:
- Round 1: MC, sc 6 inside (6)
- Round 2 and 3: Sc 6 around (2 rounds) (6), fasten off and leave a 4 inch tail for sewing
Place the paws in place:
Suggested: front paws between rounds 16 and 17, 4 stitches apart, and back paws between rounds 24 and 25, 4 stitches apart.
And you’re done! You now have a squishy, spooky season decor ♥
