Candle Cozies

Aren’t these the cutest? I love these little candle cozies…they make it so easy and inexpensive to customize for any holiday or special event. I making black and orange for Halloween this year!

These use small amounts of Peaches and Creme cotton, but any worsted/aran weight yarn should work. I buy these little candles regularly at Dollar Tree, but I have also seen them at Kohls and Walmart. Have fun!

Size Approximately 2.5 ” high and 8″ in circumference, depending on gauge. My gauge for this project was 3.5sts and 4 rows = 1″ This cozy will fit most 3 oz glass jar candles. 

Materials :

Approximately 50 yds of Peaches and Creme yarn or any other worsted weight yarn. I used colors #1006 Ecru(left) and #1725 Blueberry(right) for this project.

  • Size G (4mm) Crochet Hook
  • Darning Needle
  • Scissors


ch – chain

st – stitch

slst – slip stitch

sc – single crochet

blo – back loop only

Note: If you like, you can start this project with a ch2 beginning rather than a magic ring. To do this, ch2 and place 6 sc in the 1st chain you made. Join with a slst and continue to round 2-11.

Pattern: Make a magic ring, ch1. 

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring, join with a slst. (6 sc)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around. Do not join. (12 sc) For the next few rows, work in a spiral. Place a stitch marker in the first stitch of this round and move it up each additional round. I did this to avoid a visible seam. Of course, if you’d rather join every round, by all means, do so. 

Rnd 3: 1 Sc in next st, PM, 2 sc in next stitch. *1Sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch; rep. from *, around. (18 sc) 

Rnd 4: [ 1sc in each of next 2 sts and 2 sc in next stitch] around. (24 sc) 

Rnd 5: [ 1 sc in each of next 3 sts and 2 sc in next stitch] around. (30 sc)

Rnd 6: 1 sc in blo of every stitch around. (30 sc)

Rnd 7-11: 1 sc in each sc around, moving marker up at the beginning of each round (30 sc)

Rnd 12: 1 sc in each sc around, join with a slst to marked stitch. 

Check sizing at this point. Slip your cozy onto the candle to see how you like the fit. If you are happy with it now, work Edging. If you need it to be a little taller, work another row of sc, joining with a slst at the end of the round. 


Rnd 1: Ch1, sc in same stitch. [Ch2, skip 2 sc, sc in next sc] 10 times. Join with a slst in 1st sc of round. You should have 10 ch2 spaces. 

Rnd 2: Make 4 sc in each ch2 space around. [Join with a slst to 1st sc of round and finish off the usual way and weave in ends.

  1. Hi Angela! Super excited to start the Noah hat for a friend’s baby. I have one question tho. The pattern says to do row 6 like row 1 on the pdf. Then there is a note on the Ravelry pattern page that there was an error in omitting row 6 and the response says to do row 6 like row 2, which seems like it would make more sense, since all of the even rows are the same that way. So… is row 6 supposed to be done like row 1 or 2?
