This halloween lollipop is a great decoration for your Halloween party at home or to go for a trick or treat tour with the kids! Plus it will probably be the only lollipop to survive long after the Halloween season is over, and will turn into a nice item in your kid’s crochet candy store. Great pattern for intermediate level crocheters, and accessible to beginners as I’ve made a video for the colour change.

• The gauge for this pattern is not critical, as long as you crochet tight enough so that the fiberfill in the swirl cannot be seen through your stitches. Final size (with indicated yarn): the lolly diameter is 10cm (4”) and the stick 14cm (5,5”)
• Level: beginner
• Stitches and techniques: single crochet, increase, decrease, magic ring, colour change at the beginning of the row (video tutorial for this)
• US crochet notations
• Language: English
• Illustrated step-by-step photos and video for the colour change.

• 3.5mm / US E-4 crochet hook
• Yarn: #3 / DK / light worsted yarn, 8ply, 80% cotton 20% Milk Fiber, in dark purple, white and light beige
• Fiberfill
• Tapestry needle
• Stitch marker(s) (or a piece of thread to mark your round beginning)
• Optional: a wooden stick of 5 mm diameter and 13.5 cm length (you can use a longer one and saw it to the right length with a bread knife). 5mm diameter is approximately the size of a wooden disposable chopstick, if you have some in your kitchen drawers.
