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 :)

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. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here

Easy simple no shaping stocking ornament

Step 1 This is the star stitch but you can make these any size and any stitch just make it in this shape.
