Advent Crochet Candle

Hello everyone! I was chosen as the AFCC facebook fan of the week and in honor of that I will share my Advent crochet candle pattern with you because it's NEVER to early to start Christmas crafts right!!

Last Christmas I hosted a table at the Woman's Advent dinner at my church, I went with a Crochet Christmas theme and I waited until the week before to start hahaha... Next time I will give myself more time and we will see how much more I can come up with!

toilet paper roll or paper towel roll cut to size
piece of white paper and tape

Size G crochet hook

I used holiday cotton yarn however that can be hard to find so you can also use two strands of redheart shimmer in white and two strands in red

this is a picture of it with out white paper wrapped around the rol so you can kinda see the brown..
using white
Start with a magic circle
Rd 1-chain 1, make 6 hdc in the circle using a yarn marker don not join but crochet in a continual round
Rd 2 1 hdc in each ( 6)
Rd 3 2 hdc in each (12)
Rd 4 2 hdc in the first 1 in the next repeat ( 18)
depending on yarn size and gauge you may need another increase round ( hdc2 then 1 hdc in the next 2 repeat)
Rd 5 1 hcd in each until its long enough to reach the bottom of the roll

Last 2 rolls do one round of sc and the next round of 3 evenly spaced decrease in sc. leave a long tail pulled though the last stitch

To make flame 
do 3 or 4 foundation hdc and attach the middle where the magic circle is.

Wrap toilet paper roll with white paper and tape or glue into place.
slip the crochet candle over it and weave the tail zig zag across the3 bottom to hold into place.

I stuffed my candle with some paper to weigh it down :)

finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.

I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook.

Make a magic circle

Round 1
Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

Bottom of the cross
When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.
