Candle with flameless tealight - Free Crochet Pattern by Nicki's Homemade Crafts #candle #freecrochetpattern #free #pattern #tealight #flameless #tutorial #video #howto #christmas #advent

This free crochet pattern is all about candles. I recently made an Advent Wreath which needed some candles. But I did not want to have candles that I can’t use. So I decided to create candles with flameless tealights so you can reuse the candles over and over again, with no wax dripping anywhere.

This pattern is part of the above mentioned Advent Wreath which was sponsored by Lion Brand Yarns who provided me with some free yarn. The yarn I used was Heartland and it was the best yarn for this project.

As this pattern was kindly sponsored by my friends at Lion Brand Yarn, please go to their Facebook page and say THANK YOU!

I absolutely love this yarn and it is from now on one of my favorite go-to yarns. It is so soft and easy to work with. And let me tell you the colors are incredible.

To make it easier, I also created a photo and video tutorial for the candles. It is a very easy and fast crochet pattern. And of course it is perfect for any time of the year. Switch out the colors if you like and you can use this pattern not only for Christmas, but also Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Valentine’s Day or any other Holiday.

Also if you prefer an ad-free pdf version of this pattern, I made a pdf for the Advent Wreath that includes this pattern. I currently do not have a version for only the candles, but I will properly work on that soon.

So be sure to check out my Advent Wreath crochet pattern if you like the pdf version.

So, let me now tell you what you will need to make these awesome looking candles and how to make them very easily.

You will need (click to see which ones I used):

Stitches used, in US terms:

  • sc = single crochet
  • magic ring
  • inc = increase
  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • BLO = back loop only

Final Sizes:

Candle: 6.5 x 3 inches

 

Gauge:

4 sc x 4 rows = 1 square inch

Instructions:

All starting chains are not counted and the first stitch of every round or row goes into the same stitch as the starting chain.

VIDEO TUTORIAL can be found below.

Each candle is made in 2 pieces that are sewn together after adding the foam insert.

Using the Redwood yarn

Large Candle Piece:

Round 1: Make a magic ring and add 10 sc’s in the center, pull the yarn to close the loop, sl st to the 1st st (10 sts)

Round 2: ch 1, 1 sc inc in each st, sl st to the 1st st (20 sts)

Round 3: ch 1, 1 sc in the BLO in each st, sl st to the 1st st (20 sts)

Round 4: ch 1, 1 sc in each st, sl st to the 1st st (20 sts)

Round 5: ch 1, *1 sc, 1 sc inc, repeat from * all around, sl st to the 1st st (30 sts)

Round 6: ch 1, *1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc inc, repeat from * all around, sl st to the 1st st (40 sts)

(see picture 1)

You will now work in continues rounds. So no more sl sts until the end of the last st. Use a stitch marker to help with the number of rounds.

Round 7 is made in the BLO, starting Round 8 the sc’s are made through both loops.

Round 7 – 30: 1 sc in each st all around (40 sts), at the end of round 30 sl st, fasten off and weave in the end.

 

Small piece:

Round 1: Make a magic ring and add 10 sc’s in the center, pull the yarn to close the loop, sl st to the 1st st (10 sts)

Round 2: ch 1, 1 sc inc in each st, sl st to the 1st st (20 sts)

Round 3: ch 1, *1 sc, 1 sc inc, repeat from * all around, sl st to the 1st st (30 sts)

Round 4: ch 1, *1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc inc, repeat from * all around, sl st to the 1st st (40 sts)

(see picture 2)

 

Prep the Foam Insert by cutting off the small piece on the bottom (Picture 5) and making a 2 inch (diameter) by 1 inch (height) hole on the smaller side of the foam insert (Picture 6).

Add the foam insert to the large candle piece and sew the small candle piece to the bottom of the candle (picture 3). Now you can add your flameless candle to the top (picture 4 – 5).
