Vintage Candy Cane Cover Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


Vintage Candy Cane Cover Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of 


I first saw these Candy Cane Covers when I given one
 from my 1st grade teacher many, many years ago.
(Christmas 1971)
I do not know what ever happened to it.
After the School Christmas Program each student was 
given a Santa mug full of candy and 
 a candy cane with one of these covers on it.

So I thought it would be fun to make some and 
share the pattern with you.
It's super easy and they look lovely hanging on the tree, 
 as well as, added to your Christmas and Holiday decorations.
