Cabled Candle Wraps – A Home Decor Crochet Pattern

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.

Cable Candle Wraps

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.

Cable Crochet

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).

Howling Wolf Blanket – Crochet Pattern

The Howling Wolf Blanket is a new individual pattern that coordinates with the rest of the blanket designs in the Interchangeable Wildlife Blanket ebook. All the blanket patterns feature a striking animal silhouette that is framed with a beautiful crochet texture in a frame (border) of the blanket. 

The Howling Wolf blanket was inspired by the lovely bold Native American decor that I love seeing in so many different settings. This blanket will appeal to so many different people though. It will touch everyone on a different level giving them that “warmth of home”, “weekend at the cabin” or “my native land” feel.

Howling  Wolf

The design in the blanket panels features a unique feathering look to the stitches. This is actually a very easy stitch to crochet and you will love the look and feel it creates.

Howling Wolf Side Panel

The corner pieces of the Howling Wolf blanket feature a whimsical look. Resembling a dream catcher or some have said wagon wheel, this cornerstone to your blanket will set off just the right detail to make it pop!  

Howling Wolf Corner Square

About the Pattern

I used Lion Brand Heartland yarn for the rich burnt orange color. I love working with this line of yarn. It is soft, works up nicely, makes your stitches stand out and washes up well. For the white background color it is essential that you either use the same brand and weight of yarn, or use a yarn that has the same WIP (wraps per inch). I used Caron Simply Soft for the background resulting in 2 different yarns that worked well together.  

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats in the pattern for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is used to crochet the bear silhouette. At the end of the pattern, there is an included enlarged graph, simply print off all 4 pages and tape them together.

If you are unfamiliar with crocheting from a graph then your in luck. A supplement has been added to the pattern to assist you along the way. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in a little more detail. Essentially, it states how many stitches to complete in each color. This supplement can also be used as a way to double check the accuracy of your work.

Interchangeable Wildlife Blankets – Crochet Pattern Bundle

Growing up in one of the most beautiful states, Idaho, I have a deep love of the outdoors. The forests and mountains are where I feel the most relaxed and recharged. Watching wildlife is always so mesmerizing and I wanted to capture that in a handmade crochet blanket.  

A blanket is used to wrap yourself up and keep you cozy and warm, howeder, it can also be displayed across the back of a couch, on a blanket ladder or just draped across a bench. Essentially, it can be turned into a piece of art. No matter what you do with the blanket, these wildlife blankets are a masterpiece. 

Interchangeable Wildlife Blankets

The Interchangeable Wildlife Blanket Bundle is a unique set of crochet patterns. Each blanket features a bold silhouette of a animal found in the forest, the animal stands out against a contrasting background. The wildlife animal is then framed with a tich textured border to finish off your masterpiece.

Why do you call the Wildlife Blankets bundle “interchangeable”?

INTERCHANGEABLE [in-ter-cheyn-juh-buh-l]: adjective

1. capable of being put or used in the place of each other:interchangeable symbols.

2. capable of replacing or changing places with something else:an interchangeable part.

source: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/interchangeable

Each piece of the blankets can be changed out for the same pieces of another blanket. Each pattern is a stand alone pattern, but they are all made the same size so they can be interchanged.

Wildlife Animal Silhouette Information and Options

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats for you to choose from. A chart, (or graph), is included to help create the wildlife animal silhouette, in addition, at the end of each pattern the graph has been enlarged so you can print it off on 4 pages and tape together for a larger format you can follow.

There are 5 different animal silhouettes that you can pick to crochet. Each one is very distinguishable and pops with a bold contrast in colors, therefore, it may be a tough decision. Now choose from a: fish, moose, bear, wolf or deer.

Wildlife Animal Silhouettes

However, If you are not familiar with crocheting from a graph, I have also included a quick written out reference. This is a written form of the graph and is explained in detail with how many stitches in each color to work. This piece of the pattern can also be a good way to double check your work.

Choose one of the Textures Side Panels

Once you have chosen a silhouette you can then pick one of the beautiful textured side panels. These panels are used to frame out the silhouettes, because they run along each side, top and bottom of the blanket creating an astounding look!

Pick a Corner Square

The corner pieces of your blanket can be detailed or simple, however, they all can look very pleasing with any of the panels. The possibilities are endless. Which corner square is your favorite?

I hope you get excited about all the possibilities in designing your own blanket. I need to mention that all these designs (with the exception of the fish on blanket) are available in a book by Leisure Arts. If you have already purchased this book, then you will only need to add the Fish On Blanket to your collection.

Fish On Blanket – Crochet Pattern

Releasing a new pattern is always a nervous moment because I question whether others will love it as much as I do. As I release the Fish On Blanket today, I am pretty confident this one will be loved by many. I poured so much energy and love into this design that I made for my hubby. 

The Fish On Blanket was designed as a new matching afghan to the entire Wildlife Cables Afghan Book. The striking silhouettes of the animals with an intricate border make designs appeal to many. Anyone who love the great outdoors and wants that “warmth of home” or a “weekend at the cabin” feel will think this blanket is a show stopper.

Fish On Blanket Crochet Pattern

The design of the blanket features a detailed and intricate frame that has twisting cables and an eye catching pattern. Likewise, the corner piece has a touch of whimsical charm. It is designed in a circle pattern that features a little more elegant look of maybe a wildflower. Well, that is kind of what I think of as I sit streamside watching my husband fish.

About the Pattern

I used Premier Yarn in Christmas Green and White for the Fish On Blanket. I really liked working in this yarn, it gave the blanket a little more of a plush feel than the other wildlife blankets. The bright, but not too bright, color of the Christmas Green was just what I was hoping for and it paired perfectly with the stark white contrast of the silhouette background.

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is included to help create the fish silhouette. At the end of the pattern the graph has been enlarged so you can print it off on 4 pages and tape together for a larger format you can follow.

However, If you are not familiar with crocheting from a graph, a supplement has been added to the pattern. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in detail, but essentially, it states how many stitches in each color to work.
