MY BEAD CANDY CANE ORNAMENT (C)
6 inch bead candy cane
Size 10 crochet thread
Size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook
1. The cane in photo was crocheted with Royale Gold Metallic thread.
2. I bought the bead candy canes at Dollar Tree.
3. After tying the ends together I put a speck of glue on the knot.
Before beginning remove the hanging thread, if your candy cane has one. Save it to put back on when the candy cane is completed.
Row 1: Starting at bottom of candy cane sc between first two beads. *Ch 3, sc between next two beads. Repeat from * until the candy cane starts curving then ch 4 between beads.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, slipstitch in first sc. *6 dc in first ch 4 loop, slipstitch in sc. Repeat from * until you get to the ch 3 loops then 5 dc in loops, with the slipstitch between in the sc.
Fasten off. Tie the two tails together and weave ends under the base of the dc.
Put the gold thread back on for hanging.
