Candy Corn Pattern

I don't know if anyone was interested in the little candy corn pattern that R came up with. However, if you are, R gave me permission to share it with you. It works up super duper fast and is so cute. I test knitted it last night and it turned out pretty good. Mine is the one on top and I forgot a row of orange, so it's not as pretty as hers. However, I'm not worried about it! I thought it was still cute.
So here goes:
Sugar'n Cream yarn:
Color 1 - yellow
Color 2 - orange
Color 3 - white
US size #6 needles
With color 1 CO 24 (I used longtail CO)
Knit 4 rows
1) k3, ssk, k to last 5 sts, k2 tog, k3
2) k3, p to last 3 sts, k3
3) knit
4) Repeat row #2
Repeat rows 1-4 three times (total 12 rows, 18 sts)
Change to color 2
Repeat rows 1-4 three times (total 12 rows, 12 sts)
Change to color 3
Repeat rows 1-4 one time (total 4 rows, 10 sts)
K3, ssk, k2 tog, k3 (8 sts)
k3 rows
k2, ssk, k2 tog, k2 (6 sts)
k1 row, bind off
Weave in ends
So, there you have it. If you make it, share your pictures with us. We'd love to see it!
