Crochet Candy Cane And Wreath Ornament Tutorial

It’s not a Christmas tree without a couple of candy canes on it. I love this springy looking crochet candy cane and wreath ornament, because they’re not only quick and easy to make, but easily customized with color choices!

Each curl is only a foundation chain and 1 row of single crochet, so anyone can make them. In fact, this could be a great starting project for kids and crochet beginners.

This curly shape is achieved naturally through increases in every stitch and is actually a form of hyperbolic crochet.

Let’s get started!


  • Red yarn (4) Red Heart With Love Raspberry
  • White yarn (4) RedHeart Super Saver in whitep
    • You can change the colors if you wish
  • G/4mm hook
  • Snips
  • Tapestry needle
  • Pipe cleaner/chenille stem


  • Ch = chain
  • Sc = single crochet

Candy Cane Pattern

Step 1. Make 2

Foundation row. 32 chs.

Row 1. Work into the 2nd ch from the hook. Put 3 scs in each st.

Step 2.

Make another curl in red, or your secondary color.

Tie the ends off so they’re secure.

Step 3.

Take a pipe cleaner, wrap the 2 curls together and around the pipe cleaner.

You can weave in your tails or just snip them. Then trim the pipe cleaners to the same length as the curls.

Shape it like a candy cane so you can hang it up.


Put in the pipe cleaner and instead of shaping it like a cane, put it in a circle. Thread the pipe cleaners through the center of the curles to look like a wreath.

Trim the ends of the pipe cleaner. You won’t need to worry about matching up the ends, you can hide them with a bow.
