    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).

    1) The pattern is mine. Do not (re)sell this pattern, including translations to other languages and modifications; do not redistribute, including publishing on the internet. 2) The finished figure/item is yours. :) Feel free to sell the finished products, handmade by yourself (no mass production).
