Tiny Candy Corn

Autumn is my favorite time of year.  I love Halloween and mulled apple cider!  I love colorful trees and cool weather that is knitspirational!  Unfortunately, living in Texas, there’s a obvious lack of the seasonal pleasures.  We mostly have warm days and drought deadened plants.  This calls for an artificial simulation of  all things fall, like obsessively crocheting candy corns while watching horror movies and drinking pumpkin spice coffee.  Hey, I’ll take what autumn pleasures I can get.  Speaking of candy corns, here’s my modified version of Alica Kachmar’s safety cone pattern you can use to create these delightful candy friends:
