This project works up in about an hour and only uses chains and single crochet (sc) stitches. What makes this project super fun is using a wire slicker dog brush to turn a regular crocheted project into a super fuzzy hairy crocheted beast! Naturally “hairy” yarns like wool, alpaca, and mohair work best, but I’ve seen people also do it with acrylic yarn, with slightly different results. I’ll be using wool for my cotton candy (Cascade 220), because that’s what I have on hand.

Not only does this cotton candy buddy make a cute ornament, but you can also turn it into a pin for your sweater, a clip for your hair, or a necklace for your neck!


– Pink worsted weight yarn (I am using wool, Cascade 220)

– 9 mm safety eyes (2 of them)

– 4 inch lollipop stick

– small wire slicker brush for dogs

– glue (hot glue or Tacky glue should do the trick)

– H or I hook

– Polyfill stuffing

– tapestry needle

– depending on what you want to make, you will need ribbon or invisible thread to create a hanging loop for your ornament, OR, a pinback for a brooch, OR, a hair clip of your choice, OR a jump ring and chain to make a necklace.
