End of Candy Wrapper
SPECIAL NOTE: Before beginning your candy wrapper edges we need to sew both pieces of our candies together. You can use dressmaking pins to hold both pieces in place while sewing them together. Sew the pieces together by sewing through the stitches in the last rnd of both candies together. Before sewing your candy completely shut stuff your candy firmly.
Row1: Insert your hook into a stitch on the edge of your candy, where you'd like your wrapper end to begin. Sc x 4 (4)
Row2: Turn, ch, inc, sc x 2, inc (6)
Row3: Turn, ch, inc, sc x 4, inc, fasten off (8) **Repeat for the other end of your wrapper**
Sew on a mouth and eyes. Sew on the red peppermint swirl. Weave in all ends and trim them.
