The yarn I used for my first Snowflake Tea Light Cozy is Red Heart Cutie Pie, a super soft velvety and fluffy loft category 3 yarn – it made for a fluffy snowflake and I love the results. For my second Snowflake Tea Light Cozy, I worked it up in Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby, also a category 3 yarn, very soft and gave great detail to my Snowflake Tea Light Cozy. I would like to thank Red Heart for generously providing the yarn for my Snowflake Tea Light Cozy projects, and give both yarns TWO THUMBS UP!
I LOVE snowflakes and enjoy the warm, soft glow of a candle – so here ya go, Oh, wait before I forget… take a minute to add the pattern to your favorites and queues on Ravelry. By doing so, you really help this designer (me) with the publicity of the pattern 🙂
Snowflake Tea Light Cozy Pattern
- Size G (4.00mm) crochet hook
- Category 3 yarn (sport/DK/lt ww); Models made with Red Heart Cutie Pie colorway “cotton” and Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby colorway “Lily”
- Tapestry/yarn needle
- Tea light (I use battery operated candles)
Size: Designed to fit a standard tea light. Finished snowflake cozy dimension approximately 5-1/2”
Abbreviations: ch=chain; dc=double crochet; FLO=front loop only; hdc=half double crochet; P=picot; R=row; rep=repeat; sc=single crochet; sk=skip; sl st=slip stitch; sp=space; st(s)=stitch(es); tr=treble crochet
Special Stitch: Picot (P): ch3, sl st to side of st. This is a little twist on the picot (my preferred method), to always have a nice picot, without it wanting to “flop” to one side or the other; resulting in a nice “peak”.
- Beginning ch3 counts as a dc
- Beginning ch4 counts as a dc + ch1
- Instructions in brackets [ ] are worked as a set into the same st
- Parentheses ( ) at the end of a row indicate sts for that row
- Instructions within * * are worked as a series and rep indicated as such *
- Row 1 of snowflake you are essentially working the row sideways around the candle cozy
Pattern: Part 1 – Candle cozy (Tip* The “wrong side” of your work is the outward facing right side of your cozy. I added an additional R3 to my cozy when using the Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby yarn to bring the cozy to the top edge of my tea light)
ROW 1: Ch8, sl st to first ch to form a ring; ch3 and work 23 dc into ring; sl st to top of ch3 to join. (24)
ROW 2: sl st next st and working in FLO around, ch3, sk1, hdc; *ch1, sk1, hdc*, rep * to last st; sk last st, ch1, sl st to 2nd chain of ch3. (24)
ROW 3: ch3, sk1, hdc; *ch1, sk1, hdc*, rep* to last st; sk last st, ch1, sl st to 2nd ch of ch3. Finish off, weave tails. (24) (repeat R3 if you require a taller cozy)
Part 2 – Snowflake
ROW 1: With wrong side facing, reattach yarn to edge of R2 of candle cozy with a sl st; ch1, sc into same space; sc each st around; join with sl st to 1st sc. (24)
ROW 2: *ch5, sk3, work a sc into next st*, rep * four more times; ch5, sk4, sl st to base of ch5. (6 loop spaces)
ROW 3: ch4 (counts as your first dc + ch1); *working into the ch5 loop space work [2dc, ch1, 2dc]; ch1, dc into sc from R2, ch1*, rep * 5 more times; sl st into 3rd chain of ch4.
ROW 4: ch1 and sc into same sp, P, ch3, sk ch1 sp; *working into next ch1 sp (between the four dc) [sc, P, hdc, dc, tr, P, dc, hdc, sc, P] ch3; sk two dc and ch1, [sc, P] into next dc, ch3; sk ch1 and two dc*, rep * four more times. Again working into the next ch1 sp (between the four dc) [sc, P, hdc, dc, tr, P, dc, hdc, sc, P] ch3; sk two dc and ch1, sl st to base of first sc. Finish off, weave tails.
