Amigurumi Corn on the Cob Crochet Pattern
Okay, I’ll admit it – it was pretty tough not to start this post out with some kind of joke related to the word “corny”! For everyone’s sake, I’ll try to avoid silly word puns!
This little corn on the cob is one of my favorite play food amigurumi to make, because it’s not only super cute, but it’s really versatile! From what I know about growing corn (and trust me, that’s not much) it grows in the spring and summer, but is harvested in the fall. So I’ve always thought of it as straddling the seasonal line – it’s something you think of for the summer, but also for the fall. It walks in both worlds. Sort of a “Nightmare Before Christmas” for vegetables – you can enjoy it in either season! That’s why I felt that this little corn was perfect for the month of August! Whether you’re enjoying a summer barbecue, or making plans for your Halloween costume already, you can enjoy the cuteness this corn on the cob has to offer!

Carry yarn ends to back of corn and tie off, then hide the knot inside the stitches (see third photo below). To make blush, attach pink yarn to needle and make a small line underneath the outer corner of each eye (see fourth photo below). Repeat process to carry/tie/hide yarn ends.
Here is the finished corn!
