Free Knitting Pattern: Candle Cover

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®
Pattern #: 80066AD
This simple, quick project is a wonderful introduction to lace patterns. Make a set of these covers as a gift, cover pencil holders and even small glass vases. Of course, always make sure that the candle you use is in a glass holder, and never leave burning candles unattended.

Candle Cover

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Cast on 12 sts.
Row 1: *K1, yo, p2tog, k1, rep from * across.

Click for explanation and illustration

Candle Cover Reviewed by Jennifer on 2012-05-24 ****
I thought it was cute and simple :) Here's a picture of what mine turned out like. I didn't really measure mine i just knitted until it fitted the candle.
