Beginner Amigurumi Tutorial
Are you ready for the easiest amigurumi pattern ever? My beginner amigurumi tutorial will walk you through each step so you can crochet this adorable Candy Corn Family in no time flat.
Mwahahahahah!!!!! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I love all the scary things! The witches, the chainsaws, the candy corn……wait, what? You don’t find candy corn scary? What about a family of candy corns? No? That’s not scary either?
Even if you don’t find this iconic Halloween candy scary I hope you’ll want to dive into this super simple amigurumi tutorial. Above all, I designed these toys with the absolute beginner in mind. I’m going to walk you through each and every step so that you can crochet your very own candy corn.
Introducing the Corn Family
First, I would like to first introduce you to the Corn family. Christopher Corn, is a devoted husband and father. He enjoys golfing and DIY projects. Secondly Candace Corn, better known as Candy loves baking. She is particularly well known for her Boston Cream pies. Finally, Caroline Corn, is the baby of the family and spends her days giggling and blowing raspberries.
To begin this beginner amigurumi tutorial you are going to need to have a few foundational skills.
Also the video shows each step and walks the absolute beginner from start to finish!
- Make a magic ring
- How to single crochet
That’s it! Now if you don’t already know how to do either of those…. I’ve got you covered! Check out my blog post YouTube video here. I walk you through how to make a magic ring and how to single crochet.
Because this project is fairly simple and you can use what you already have. Above all, don’t feel like you have to buy precisely what I’m listing here. But I am going to add the exact products I use in case you need supplies.
Furls Odyssey Purple Crochet Hook 6″ (3.50 mm (E)) or a 3.5 mm crochet hook.
BetyBedy Large-Eye Blunt Needles, Stainless Steel Yarn Knitting Needles, 9 Pieces Sewing Needles or any yarn needles you already have

I used a few extra supplies but they certainly aren’t necessary. Therefore, if you want your Candy Corn Family to be exactly like mine these are the additional materials I used. Above all, if you are planning on becoming a toy making addict like me, you may want to build your supply stash.
