How To Crochet A Candlestick Amigurumi Cuddler Pillow With Rosy Cheeks And Kawaii Smile. Our Candlestick Crochet Pattern Works Up Quickly!
Hi friend! We’re excited to share our Candlestick crochet pattern Kawaii Cuddler™ with you!
Here are some fun facts we found about the Candlestick while researching our pattern:
- The best way to put out a candle is to use a candle snuffer as it puts the flame out by depriving it of oxygen. If you don’t own a snuffer, then take a toothpick, pencil to push the wick into the wax, then stand the wick upright. Then when your candle is cool, trim the wick before lighting it again.
- A Candlemaker is a chandler. Cocorico! It comes from the Old French word “chandelier”. Before the introduction of electricity, a “chandelier” was a ceiling fitting made of several candles to light up the rooms.
- Putting candles on cakes is a tradition dating back to Ancient Greece. Ancient Greeks would bring a cake decorated with candles. It represented the glowing moon, to the temple of Artemis, the Goddess of the hunt and the moon. It only became a birthday tradition from the 1700s as every candle represented each passing year.
This is a beginner level pattern. Our finished Candlestick project is 11″ x 13″ using the recommended hook size. You are welcome to go up or down a hook size to create a different dimension. You can even hold two pieces of yarn together with a larger hook to create a giant cuddler. The sky is the limit!
If you’ve never worked one of our Kawaii Cuddler™ patterns, they are geared towards beginners. You will work two flat pieces and single crochet them together to finish the piece. Even if you’ve never been able to crochet from a pattern before, we’re confident you can create with a 3amgracedesigns pattern. We encourage you to join our Facebook Group where we remain active helping with questions! We love passing our love for the craft on to others!
