Snowflake Candle Holder Centerpiece
This Snowflake Candle Holder Centerpiece Pattern is my very first design. I was looking for something holiday related and I couldn’t find exactly what I had in mind. I put my hook into the wind with my pad of paper by my side and made up on my own version.
Please enjoy my new pattern as I am giving it out for free.

Never leave any candles unattended in your home. Using a glass candle will protect your centerpiece and keep the flame away from the yarn.
Round 1 – Start with Magic Ring and 5 SC into ring. Pull tight and SL ST to first SC.
Round 2 – Ch 1 and do 2 SC into each SC around, SL ST to first SC. (10 SC total).
Round 3 – Ch 1 and do 2 SC into each SC around, SL ST to first SC. (20 SC total).
Round 4 – Ch 1 and do *1 SC into SC, 2 SC in the next SC. Continue from * and do not join at end. (30 SC total). I like to mark the last stitch at this point.
Round 5 – Work 1 HDC into the back loops only (BLO) of each SC of the previous round. Do not join at end. (30 HDC total). Move stitch marker.
Round 6 – Work 1 HDC into both loops of each HDC of previous round. Join with SL ST to beginning stitch and finish off. (30 HDC total).
Your piece is now cup shaped. Turn the piece over and the next round will be worked into the front loops of round 4.
Round 7 – Attach yarn to any free front loop from round 4 with a SC and SC into each loop around, SL ST to first SC. (30 SC total).
Round 8 – Ch 1 and SC in first stitch and then the next stitch. *Ch 7, skip 3 SC, SC in next 2 SC. Repeat from *. Join with SL ST to first SC. (6 chain loops and 12 SC)
Round 9 – Ch 2, DC in next SC. *2 DC, CH 3, 2 DC all in CH 7 loop, DC2TOG in next 2 SC. Repeat from * to end. SL ST to top of first DC of round (skipping over beginning CH 2).
Round 10 – CH 1 and SC in beginning stitch. *CH 3, skip the next 2 DC’s and into the CH 3 loop, HDC, DC, TC, CH 5, SL ST to 3rd CH, CH 2, TC, DC, HDC, skip the next 2 DC’s CH 3, SC into the next stitch. Repeat from *. SL ST to beginning SC and finish off.
Blocking will give it a better finished look.
