Snowflake 2

I tried a different pattern to make a snowflake candle mat. This one seems much more snowflake-y to me. The pattern comes from The Hooked Haberdasher which is chock full of patterns and tutorials.

The original pattern was designed to make a tealight cozy, but I did not have white yarn in the right gauge. I used worsted weight cotton and G hook hoping it would end up about the right size for a small candle holder—a bit larger than a tealight, but not so large the glass holder didn’t fit snugly—and it did.

I blocked this to get it into the right shape to see how it turned out, but I think I will use something to stiffen it, at least on the snowflake part, for future ones if I am giving them as gifts.
