This is a pattern for a candle holder ‘sleeve’ with a motif of angels. It looks fanciest in a thin cotton yarn, but I wanted to make it available for everyone so I also provided instructions to make it in a (synthetic) worsted weight yarn:).

The angels are built up in rows with a lot of chains in them, which is why I’ve dubbed the technique ‘chain-sculpting’. The method is a little unorthodox – like everything that comes from my brain:) - but I’ll try to explain as logically and non-intimidatingly as possible. A cute, fast project with a lot of bang for your buck!

You can make this in under one hour and you’ll need only a little bit of (scrap) yarn.

If you want to sell finished items based on this pattern, I’m okay with that. I do kindly ask that you let me know – and of course you get extra brownie points for a pattern credit or link back! Contact me at
