Mini Candle Bag

Use them as gift tags or advent calendar for small treats – the candle bags are always a looker.

Little cards, money or small sweets can be packed and presented in an original way.

Especially for Christmas they are a welcome change to other christmassy motifs.

But they can be used for other occasions just as well: birthday, christening, wedding... there are basically no limits.

The pattern is beginner-friendly and includes many pictures & step-by-step instructions.

Skill Level:

The size depends on your gauge, chosen type of yarn and crochet hook size. I'm using Puppets Lyric yarn (8/8, DK/Light-Worsted) from Coats and a 3.5 mm hook.

The bags can be crocheted in any size (width & height).
