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!
>>> PIN IT FOR LATER <<<
- 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!

Thanks Victoria! They’d look cute as gift toppers! 🙂
Oh, what a lovely idea! I like to with my lucet but don’t often have a real plan for the resulting cords – I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for sharing with Party in Your PJs!
Thanks Lynda! 😀 I’m glad it gave you an idea for your lucet cords!

These are so sweet, I’ve often had fun making i-cords or french knitting and ran out of ideas to use them so this is brilliant.

These are so sweet! And I’ll bet they’d work with the finger knitting my girls love but I can never find a use for. 🙂 I’m pinning this for sure!
