How to Crochet an Easy Candy Cane Decoration for Christmas - Crochet Locs

NEW Videos Wednesday! Hi I'm Donna Wolfe from Naztazia https://naztazia.com Today I'll show you how to crochet a candy cane decoration for Christmas. With just 2 rows of single crochet stitches, this crochet pattern is perfect for a beginner. A glue and water mixture then help the candy canes keep their shape. Once completed they are about 8 inches tall and 3 inches wide. I'm using Sugar n Cream for this crochet pattern, which is a 100% cotton yarn, in the colors White, Red, and Mod Green. The cotton yarn absorbs the glue and water mixture nicely, so the candy cane is very solid once completed. It is important to really saturate the crocheted ribbon strips with the glue and water mixture. Once that is done, you can shape the candy cane and lay it on a plastic wrap surface. Mine usually dry in a day or two. The length of drying time is dependent upon the temperature and humidity level. Higher temperatures generally dry the glue faster. Lower humidity levels also help with the drying process. I like to put my crochet work underneath our forced air heating unit, as you can see in the video. It makes them dry rather quickly!
