Shell Stitch Candle Holders

Crocheted Jar Candle CoversI found a crochet pattern online that I just had to try. The first couple that I made I followed her pattern exactly. They turned out good but I adjusted the pattern. Here is what I did.

I think I have tried this with about every weight of yarn. I started making them with Sugar N Cream 4 ply Worsted yarn. (the yarn that I use to make dish towels or pot holders) I used this because I wanted to use the candles outside and I thought they would hold up to Portland, Oregon weather. They have withstood very well for outdoor use. They are a bit bulkier because of the thickness of the yarn. I also used spaghetti sauce jars. I like the height of the jars for outdoor use because it protected the flame from the wind. (Last picture below)
