Mini Candle Bag - Advent Calendar - Crochet Pattern

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).

I'm Stephanie, mother of three and I live with my family in Germany.

I've been crocheting for a while now. My kids got me to it. When there's no merchandising on the market for the current favorit comic figure you just have to make it yourself. That's how my first crocheted figure came to life. And with that my crochet addiction. :)

My patterns are for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Stuffed with photos and detailed step-by-step instructions (I think you could call them photo-tutorials). I learned crocheting by myself and often found it quite frustrating to get stuck in the middle of a pattern just because some key-information was simply missing (as a beginner pretty much everything is key-information). That's why in my patterns almost everything is explained with words and photos.

I'm currently converting my older patterns into a new layout. Here on Makerist you can find all the patterns that already have the new layout plus all my new creations.

Have fun browsing through my patterns and happy crocheting!

  • Steph :)
