Meg's Crochet Candy Corn Zipper Pouch Tutorial

I used Lily's sugar and cream sunshine yellow and Peaches 'N Cream hot orange and white yarn.

Row 1: Chain 2 count as first half double crochet (now and through out) make 2 half double crochet in each single crochet around 12 stitches total join with a slip stitch Note: To get the candy corn shape go through the two loops not between the spokes. This will keep it from becoming a flat round. (See right and wrong picture above.)
