What Christmas tree is complete without a candy cane? The perfect red and clear white hues come together to make a classic candy cane. Visually striking against the needles of an evergreen, you could make a whole gaggle of these to pepper your tree or holiday mantle. If you’re not scared of grafting, you can tackle this 6 row pattern over and over between now and the holidays. Maybe it’s just me who lives for the idea of including knit and crochet gift toppers on every present one day, but this candy cane definitely seems like a doable gift topper idea for everyone on my list.
