Happy Saint Nicholas Day! Today I have a tutorial for no-sew candy canes for you: Craft your own healthy, sugar-free 😉 candy canes with I-cords in red and white!
- I-cords in red and white – made with a knitting nancy or double lucet, or crocheted or knitted I-cords
- wire cutter and round nose pliers
- needle and scissor
Knot both I-cords together. Cut a piece of wire a bit longer than the I-cords. Form a loop at one end with the pliers.
Twist the I-cords together and begin to insert the wire – alternating between the red and white I-cord: the wire holds the twist together.
Make a loop at the other end of the wire …
… thread one yarn through the loop …
… and tie the red and white yarn together. Do the same on the other end of the candy cane. Hide the tails inside the I-cord. And bend the wire into a candy cane shape.
The candy cane ornaments were day 6 of my Advent Calendar. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what’s behind door 7!
