Lacy Tealight/Candle Holder (Free pattern)

 

I’ve been crocheting for some 4 years now… has been following patterns or modifying existing patterns to my liking, but when I posted this pic,  many started asking for pattern and one of the popular Facebook Group “Crafts Hobby Club” admin wanted me to do a CAL on this as it is the season of festival of lights, Deepavali, here in India.  I felt it was a wonderful opportunity to start as a designer as there will be many people trying it.

So, this is my first attempt at writing a pattern and hope you all will enjoy making this beautiful tealight/candle holder and celebrate Deepavali or Christmas by lighting a diya or candle in style :)…

This free pattern is for personal use only. You cannot sell or distribute the pattern in any way. You can sell your finished products, but you cannot use my pictures to promote them. If you want to share the pattern, please mention me as the designer and give link to this page.  I request you all to give respect to a designer’s effort and time.  Thank you!

Now to the free pattern 🙂
