Crochet Christmas Candle Applique Pattern

Today I’d like to continue the Christmas theme and share a short and sweet pattern of Christmas Candle made for crochet newbies. Pick up your hooks and yarn, make a cup of delicious cappuccino and before you finish it, you will have a neat DIY candle. There are just 4 stitches used in this pattern, a hook of your choice (mine was 4.5 mm) and leftover yarn. Warning: the candle gets really hot as you get to the end of the pattern, don’t burn your fingers 😉
