The inspiration for this pattern was the little candy corn pumpkins which is where the name came from; however, these look great in any color or colors you choose.
Each set requires only a small amount of yarn so they are the perfect stash buster pattern.
This pattern was designed by Leah Feild of Creative Threads by Leah, exclusively for Cre8tion Crochet.

- Recommended retail price: Children’s sizes, $10-15; Adult sizes, $15-20. If cuffs are made with more puff rows than written, I would recommend increasing the price.
- Starting chains do not count as the first st.
- All joins are with a sl st to the first st unless otherwise indicated.
- After the first row of puff sts, the rest of the puff st rows will be worked into the ch sps from the previous puff st row and over the ch sp in the hdc row.
- Pattern is written for Small Child with changes in parentheses.
- If you need to adjust circumference of the boot cuff (these are written with 1-2 inches negative ease for fit), add or subtract 4 fhdc in the beginning round for each inch that needs adjusting, 2 fhdc for half inches.
