With the weather cooling off, kids back in school (kind of), pumpkin spice lattes back in the shops…. these are all signs that the holidays are coming. I haven’t gotten my holiday decor down just yet, but I am definitely thinking about it. So, it was no surprise when I decided to sit down and design something new, Cabled Candle Wraps!
If you know me, you know I just cannot get enough texture in my crochet designs. These little wraps that dress up your candles are perfect for any occasion, just switch up the colors and your good to go!
Why Cabled Candle Wraps?
Well, it is so close to sweater weather and there is nothing I like better than wrapping up in a warm top and one of the key elements is cables in sweaters. They are so distinct and give that warm and cozy feeling.
Candles do that exact same thing. Light a candle in any room and all of a sudden it transforms into a warm and cozy feeling.
Important Note: Only use wickless and/or flameless candles when using the cable candle wraps. Open flames and yarn do not mix and can be very dangerous.
About the Cable Candle Wraps Patterns
The wraps all work up quick but feature eye popping texture woven throughout the designs.
They are designed to fit around a 3″ candle in varying heights of 3″, 4″ and 5″. I believe they would also work as beverage cozies as well! You will see them used as plant cozies in my testers photos at the end of the post as well. They are versatile and fun to add to your holiday decor.
The above images show the details of the cables in a flat lay (before they are sew together).
