Hello and welcome back to my blog, and if you’re new here welcome! If you’re a first timer, be sure to subscribe to my email list so that you can stay in the know all the latest patterns and tutorials!
Its just a couple days before Halloween so I wanted to be sure to make at least one festive blog post to stay in the moment. If you’ve been following the blog since the beginning you may remember these Candy Corn Knit Coasters from years back (if this describes you, I love you haha!). It’s a super simple pattern but I thought it would be fun to bring it back with some fresh photos and an all new video tutorial!
If you’ve made a few fall projects this season, you most likely have these classic colors on hand which is great, because this is an awesome stash buster.
Not only is this project a great stash buster, but each of these Candy Corn Knit Coasters whip up in just about an hour (or less time if you’re a fast knitter!), so you can expect to have a set whipped up in just an afternoon or over a couple evenings depending on your knitting schedule.
In conclusion, the Candy Corn Knit Coasters pattern is a super fun project and you should totally give it a try!
