Hello Rainbows ! 🌈
If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, you know that Lucius, a candy lover, has prepared a little sweet surprise for you!
Yes, he uses you to feed him by revealing the recipe to prepare his favorite sweets. 🍬
So he asked me to make a video to share with you the tutorial for creating crochet candies!
Two-tone or one-tone, it’s up to you! These candies can also be used as decoration for Halloween which is coming soon.
As you can see, I made some in black and orange for Halloween and in pastel colors and with white for all occasions.
I made a video explaining in detail how to make these candies. You can also find the written version of the pattern. I let you discover all that below 🔽
