Budding Lotus Sampler Lace Crochet Candle Holders FREE Patterns
by Kristin Omdahl

I’m always on the lookout for ways to make quick, but thoughtful and beautiful, handmade gifts. Inspired by the bubble shape of these glass vases, I created beautiful lace crochet covers and crocheted them right onto the vases! The construction style is very similar to top down seamless hats, and I offer the patterns in multiple sizes. You could starch or glue your lace to your vases,  but I used a decrease round at the end to crochet them securely to the vases! This pattern includes instructions for 4 stitch pattern designs, and in 3 sizes: 4”, 5.5” and 8” bubble vases. Be sure to check out my YouTube Video that walks you through the whole process!

Scroll to the bottom of this free pattern page to watch the how-to video and get all the crochet charts, too!

Materials:
(1) skein Be So Fine Yarn; 100% bamboo yarn; 650 yards per 4oz skein; colors used: Chantilly Lace, Pure Gold, Parisian Bordeaux and Iced Silver Fox. One skein could easily make several of these candle holders. Great for gifts!

(1) flameless votive candle
Yarn needle, scissors

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!
I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.
xoxo, Kristin
