Tea Light Candle Cosy Pattern

Tea light candles need no introduction and neither need I emphasise the significance of lights during festivals. These cute little very easy to make candle cosies are quick crochet projects that can be completed in a jiffy. These will, no doubt, brighten up your home. You can also gift these little ones to friends and family. Always good to spread a little light!

There are three versions of the tea light candle cosies with minor variations. I have, however, given the patterns for all three separately to avoid confusion. Hope you like them.

    

If there is any confusion in understanding the pattern please do reach out to me through the comments sections and I shall be happy to help.

Material you need:

Version 1- Crochet Candle Cozy

Round 1: Ch 1; 12 hdc in the magic ring. Slip stitch to the top of the first hdc. (12 hdc)

Round 2: Ch 1; 2 hdc in each stitch. Slip stitch to the top of the first hdc (24 hdc)

Round 5: Ch 2; Now we will form a cluster here. Yarn over to form a hdc over the next stitch. Instead of pulling the yarn through all three loops pull only through two.
