How to crochet a little witchy tea light

Spread the love

Halloween

Crochet for Halloween, we can’t ignore it, it’s a great time to crochet little spooky, witchy, pumpkin-like gadgets. I started looking for some inspiration! What I love most are witches, especially their hats, but I also like pumpkins, and the pumpkin soup too!

Since I recently crocheted beanies, I choose witch hats!

Do you also remember I made little snowmen for Christmas last year? These little snowmen gave me the idea to crochet witch hats with a tea light! Winter is coming and the days are getting shorter, so a little light in the evening makes the room more atmospheric. But if you don’t have an LED tea light, you can easily make it without!

I hope you have fun with this pattern!

The brume

To crochet the collar, take the bottom of the top of the hat and start crocheting at the bottom of the base ring. As you can see in the chart in round 1, try to make 2 single crochets between each single crochet from the first round of the top of the hat! It is a bit tricky but the result is very nice to see, you get a thick borderline.

Now all that’s left to do is tuck in the ends and put in the LED tea light!
