Caramel Free Candy Crochet Pattern: 31 Days of Candy Day 8 by E'Claire Makery

Day 8 of the 31 Days of Candy is here, and it’s the start of another week of candy crochet patterns. My week is off to a shaky start, because I am sick. I had a weekend filled with celebrations for my upcoming wedding, which was super fun, but then I came back home feeling like I have the flu. Oh dear! Thankfully, today I’m sharing a candy that I absolutely love: caramel. I don’t know about you, but caramel has to be one of my all time favorite things. The first time I ever tried caramel, I was in love. The sweet caramel flavors always melt in your mouth and create this delicious hug of sweetness. I could put caramel on any dessert: apple pie, Oreos, cake, you name it I want caramel on it.  I love it so much that I wanted to make sure that I made a crocheted version of it!


I used one of my all time favorite yarns to make this caramel: Lion Brand Jeans. There is something amazing and magical about the softness of this yarn. If you’ve never tried it before, then this is a great easy project to introduce it to you! This pattern is crocheted in continuous rounds using single crochets, which gives it an easy pattern that works up in no time at all. Let’s get started!

Stitches Used:

  • st = stitch
  • sc = single crochet (UK Double Crochet)
  • dec = decrease

Recipe Notes:

  • The caramel is crocheted in continuous rounds. Mark the beginning of each round with a stitch marker.
  • Pattern uses US crochet terminology, but the UK terminology conversion is listed in the stitches used list above
  • Face is made of felt pieces that are cut out and sewn on to the crocheted piece. Download my Felt Pieces for Plushies PDF Printout for the face pieces you’ll cut out of felt. Cut out two eyes from black felt, the mouth from pink, and the tongue from red. If you don’t know how to sew on felt pieces, check out my Youtube Video Below that shows how to do it.
