This free crochet pattern is all about pinecones and how to make them easily and fast. I recently made an Advent Wreath which needed some pinecones to make it look even better.
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.
This pattern is also part of the Advent Wreath Crochet Along. Be sure to check out the main page for that as well.
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.
As this pattern is created for the Advent Wreath, please go to Ravelry and add the entire pattern to your Ravelry Favorites. This is also the place where you could purchase the entire pattern at once, which includes all 6 patterns of the Advent Wreath.
So, if you prefer an ad-free version of this pattern where the pictures are added separately to the back of the pattern (to save ink in case you just want to reference the pictures but not print them), you can purchase the pdf on Ravelry or Etsy below.
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:
You can learn all Basic Stitches through THESE TUTORIALS
- ch = chain
- sl st = slip stitch
- dc = double crochet
Pinecone: 3 x 2.5 inches
4 sc x 4 rows = 1 square inch
Make 4 pinecones for the Advent Wreath pattern
Sl st to the 3rd ch from the hook (picture 1 – 2), then add the following repeat 4 times to the 3rd ch from the sl st: 1 dc, ch3, sl st to the 3rd ch (pictures 3 – 7)
Now into each ch of the rest of the long ch add this repeat 5 times: 1 dc, ch3, sl st to the 3rd ch
After all chains have the repeat crocheted into, roll up the long piece in a spiral and sew it layer by layer together so it won’t get undone. Fasten off. (pictures 8 – 10)
