Work up a pretty wire crochet tealight holder to add ambiance to any setting … both outdoor or in!
If you haven’t tried crocheting with wire yet, don’t be intimidated … it’s so much fun! And the result is a unique piece that will leave you wanting to make even more.
Wire Crochet Tealight Holder Pattern
Here’s what you will need:
- US G-6/4 mm crochet hook
- 28 gauge silver wire, approx. 15 yds.
- wire cutter (I’ll be honest … I use my scissors, although it’s probably not the best idea for them!)
Make a magic ring, or alternately you can ch 2 and then work Round 1 in the second ch from your hook.
Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as st here and throughout), work 6 sc in ring, join — 6 sts.
Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 sc in same st as join and in each st around, join — 12 sts.
Round 3: Ch 1, work 2 sc in same st as join, 1 sc in next, *2 sc in next, 1 sc in next, rep from * around, join — 18 sts.
Rounds 4 through 7: Ch 1, work 1 sc in same st as join and each st around, join — 18 sts.
Snip wire and fasten off as usual. Weave in the wires to secure and then try to fold the ends into themselves to keep them from poking you.
Now just fill with you favorite tealight, grab a cup of tea, and relax.
