This pattern will show you how to make cute crocheted candies for Valentine’s Day or any other occasion. These work up quickly and make a great stashbuster.

I made mine using I Love This Cotton! Yarn and a size F (3.75 mm) crochet hook. I would also recommend using a stitch marker to keep your place and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends. You can either leave them flat or you can lightly stuff them with fiberfill stuffing for more of a 3D look.

Gauge isn’t crucial for this pattern. As written, mine are 1-3/4” across the center of the candies. But I tend to crochet tightly, so if you’re a looser crocheter, you’ll probably want to size down a hook or two unless you want your candies to be larger.

A simple variation for turning this pattern into an appliqué is also included.
