Round 1: With yellow yarn and G/4.0mm crochet hook make 10 sc in a magic circle making sure not to pull the center closed. Use a stitch marker to keep track of each round by placing it in the first stitch and move it up for each round. (10 sc)
Round 2: Work 2 sc in each st around. (20 sc) At this point I like to place the “flame” of the candle into the center hole and adjust making sure it fits snugly then I secure and weave in the center yarn tail.
Rounds 3-4: sc in each st around.
Round 5: working in front loop only, sc in each st around, join with sl st to first sc, ch 1, now working in back loop only sc in each st around. (You will have 2 rows on round 5 a front row and a back row)
Rounds 6-7: continuing in the back row of round 5 sc in each st around. Do NOT fasten off, Place the stitch marker in the loop of the last stitch and cut a long enough tail for sewing. (If your tea light happens to be a little taller you can add an 8th round)
Attach White yarn to front loop in any st of round 5. *Ch 7, work a sc in 3rd ch from hook, work hdc in next 3 ch, work sc in last ch, sl st in next flo repeat from * around (20 petals)
Ch 1, this round you will be working in back loops only of round 5 , sl st in blo of row 5, *ch 9, sc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in next 5 ch, sc in last ch, sl st in next blo, repeat from * around, finish off (20 petals)
Loop a piece of yarn through the top for a hanger.
Next it’s time to put the crocheted piece on the tea light. Slide it on like a sock making sure the “flame” fits nice and snug in the center hole. Put your yarn needle on the tail you left and start weaving it around the last row tightening it just enough to fit snugly around the base of the tea light, but making sure the on/off button is still operational. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Make one or make a whole bouquet, these flowers will last a long time!
