Tutorial – Crochet Candle Holder

I made this crochet candle holder a while back and even took pictures along the way. But I never got round to sharing it.

This is the sort of quick and easy project that I love to embark on when  I need a rush of positive energy. It is so rewarding to create something cute and homely and finish it in such a short time. Since I started doing these I’ve been putting glass jars away in a cupboard so I can have a blast whenever I need it.

Plus candle holders also make a great gift too!

As I mentioned earlier, I took these pics a while back. Apologies for the lack of light at the end… it was getting dark!!

I used a 3.5 mm hook.

Start with a magic loop, chain 3 (will count as the first treble) and crochet 13 trebles in the ring. Slip stitch on the third chain (top of three chains). (14 stitches)

Chain three (will count as first treble) and treble in the same place. Insert two trebles in each loop until the end. Slip stitch like in previous round. (28 stitches)

For the third round, chain three, (two trebles in the next loop, one treble) repeat till the end. This is basically 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1 and so on. Slip stitch to first treble (three chains). (42 stitches)

Make sure you  after each round you check  if it fits the jar’s base. In this case I only needed three rounds, but if you need to make it larger, just remember you should add 14 new stitches in every round. So the fourth row would be (2 trebles, 1 treble, 1 treble) repeat till the end.

For the next rounds we’ll use a mesh stitch. Chain three, (skip one chain, 1 treble in next chain) repeat to the end and finish with slip stitch to the first treble.

Repeat this mesh stitch for as many rows as you need.

For the edging, chain 3 and 4 trebles in same place, (skip 1, double crochet in next chain, skip 1, 5 trebles in next chain) repeat to end. Slip stitch to first stitch. Fasten off and weave in ends.
