Here in the South of France, winter time is coming slowly to its end. The sun is shining and it is even nice to sit outside in the sun with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. You can say here that spring is in the air. :-)
That must be the reason why light colors are catching my eyes the last few days. So I have decided to crochet some tealight covers in over to bring some fresh colors into my apartment.
I had these little glasses laying around at home. They have a diameter of 5.5cm (2.5 inch) and a height of 6.5cm (2.6 inch).
They are not very big but they are so cute at the coffee table or even at the table during dinner. (I am definitely a candle person). :-)
This is again a very simple pattern but effective!!
- 100% cotton
- yarn needle
- crochet hook 3 mm
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
Pattern is written in US crochet terms.
Chain 27 on hook size 3mm and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Row1: 1ch, *1sc in next ch*, repeat *-*, 25 times and finish with 1 sl st in first chRow 2: 1ch, *1sc in next sc*, repeat *-* 25 times and finish with 1 sl st in first ch
Repeat Row 2, 8 more times and finish off, weave in ends.
Tip: make sure when starting chaining 27 that the ring you will form seems rather a bit small for the glass. Like this the cover won't slide off easily once it is finished and placed on the glass.
