Crocheted Candle Cozies
This pattern fits around the IKEA Driod glasses (these are drinking glasses, but I have found they fit the Aveda candle refills perfectly). They add a pop of cozy color to your cold weather decor and make a great gift. My favorite yarn to make these with is Cascade 220, I love the assortment of colors.
(From the bottom of the votive up)
Round 1= make a chain of 30 stitches, slip stitch to join into a circle, careful not to twist. (check your guage, this chain should fit snugly around the bottom).
Round 2 & 3 = 1 Half Double Crochet into each chain, 30 stitches. Join round with a slip stitch.
Round 4 = Chain 1, *1 Half Double Crochet into first and second stitch, then 2 Half Double Crochet stitches into the next/third stitch*. Repeat from * till end of round, 40 stitches. Join round with a slip stitch.
Continue as Round 5 until you have the desired number of rows to cover your candle holder. I wanted my rows to reach all the way to the rim of the glass, so I did 5 more rows for a total of 10 rows. Eyeball this, it may vary depending on your guage and tension. You may prefer to have a little of the candle holder showing at the top (after all, they do come in pretty colors), so do one less row.
